What causes herniations and protrusions?

Z

Loss of the normal curves in the spine

A loss of the normal curves in the spine can cause the body to become unbalanced and the body weight to be unevenly distributed which in turn will cause the vertebrae to misalign putting extra tension on the vertebral discs, which causes weakening and degenerating. They can also be caused by improper movements, falls, or excessive forces due to accidents.

Disc degeneration

When the discs, which separate one vertebra from another, degenerates, it can affect the spinal cord itself or the nerves surrounding the disc. The disc can deform, tear or even rupture.

What can a chiropractor due to help?

Alleviate the pressure on the surrounding nerves which are being pinched by the herniated discs.
Help to correct and restore the natural curves of the spine alleviating the affected and surrounding areas.
Without correcting the affected disc(s), the most probable long term remedy will be surgery which is why chiropractic care is highly recommended to prevent future degenerations.


Chiropractic is an effective and safe alternative way to treat herniated discs without the need for surgery

A study by The International Research Committee of the American Association of Chiropractic showed:
“Chiropractic adjustments are effective in alleviating pain caused by herniated discs.”
“88% of the patients obtained a significant improvement, 8% slight improvement and 3,4% noted no change.”
McMorland, Suter, Casha, du Plessis and Hurlbert in 2010 did a clinical study comparing spinal surgery done by neurosurgeons to chiropractic manipulative treatments:
“60% of the patients that underwent chiropractic care said they had successful results in comparison to 40% of those who underwent surgery.”
