How Paramount Chiropractic Cares for a Disc Injury | Chiropractor for Disc Injuries in Westlake, OH

Hello, I’m Dr. Greg from Paramount Chiropractic in Westlake, Ohio. Today, we’re addressing disc injuries, a prevalent issue that affects many individuals, potentially leading to severe discomfort and mobility limitations.

What is a Disc Injury?

Discs are the shock absorbers of your spine, located between the vertebrae. They facilitate nerve function and are critical for spinal health. Injuries to these discs can manifest as lower back pain or even radiate pain through the limbs, significantly impacting daily activities and quality of life.

Causes of Disc Injuries

  • Subluxation: This is a common cause where spinal segments move improperly, restricting motion and leading to wear and tear on the discs. Healthy discs rely on movement to maintain their condition.
  • Degeneration: Lack of motion can accelerate disc degeneration, leading to the breakdown of the annulus fibrosis (the tough outer layer of a disc) and the nucleus (the inner ‘jelly’). This degeneration can compress nerves, causing shooting pain across different body parts.
  • Repetitive Stress and Trauma: Both excessive movement and prolonged inactivity (like sitting at a desk) can stress discs. Repetitive heavy lifting or persistent static pressure from sitting can lead to injuries.
