Your Chiropractic Assessment for a Bulging Disk
You will discuss any recent medical history and injuries that could be causing your pain when you go for a chiropractic assessment. If you have had imaging done, this should be brought to your evaluation for review. If the chiropractor is the first provider you see for a bulging disk, you may need further imaging to see what is going on with your spine. A bulging disk often bulges because there is compression in the spine. A chiropractor can work to strengthen your core muscles, improve posture, and reduce compressions when they exist. With the right treatment in place, it is possible to reverse a bulging disk at times.
Treatment for a Bulging Disk
Once it is determined why you have a bulging disk, treatment can be provided to reduce strain on the area. Decompression techniques can help eliminate pressure on a disk that is bulging, giving the disk room to heal. Treatment to address tight muscles and poor circulation will help you heal your body. If the bulging disk is causing pressure on your sciatic nerve, this can cause intense pain along your entire sciatic nerve. Treatment is progressive and will help to reduce pressure on any of your nerve endings. As your bulging disk heals, you can see the chiropractor less often for therapy.
