Back pain


A disc bulge or herniation stems from the outer edges of the discs that are located in between the vertebrae. These outer edges become damaged which leads to a gelatin-like mass squeezing out and creating a bulge. This often painful issue is more common than most people think. Despite this, it can often go undetected as some patients feel no pain. The pain is determined by the size and location of the herniation within the back. The damaged disc can potentially irritate nerves around it which can cause a stabbing or shooting pain sensation and even issues within the legs. It is essential this condition is found as soon as possible as the risk of further damage is possible with this issue. King Chiropractic Clinic will completely and carefully examine your back in order to understand the intensity of your condition along with creating a customized treatment plan to stop the potentially worsening effects of a herniation and relieve the pain associated with it.
