Your Austin Chiropractor Healing After a Slipped Disc 

patient with slipped disk in Austin, TX

Developing back pain raises concerns about your health, especially if the pain persists and stems from your spine. In many cases, the injury to your back or spine relates to a slipped disc. By understanding the injury and seeking treatment from a professional chiropractor, you have the opportunity to heal without harsh medications or invasive treatment.

What is a Slipped Disc?

At First Chiropractic, we recognize that a variety of health concerns arise when your back pain persists or causes problems with your daily lifestyle. Dr. Jerel Wottrich provides the care that you need to address a slipped disc and start the healing process.

A herniated disc refers to an injury that causes the inner portion of a disc in your spine to slip out, or bulge away from, the rest of your spine. The signs and symptoms of the injury include:

  • Pain or numbness on one side of your body

  • Pain that worsens during sleep

  • Unexplained weakness

  • Tingling or aching

  • Pain that worsens when you stand, sit or walk short distances

Generally, a bulging disc results in pain and discomfort that worsens with specific actions and can spread throughout different areas of your body. Depending on the location of the disc, and the way that the pain spreads along your side, arms or legs will vary.
