Bulging discs are one of the most common disorders related to the spinal cord and thousands of people suffer from this condition every year. Most of us don’t even know about it until there are severe problems related to the nervous system. Discs are the concentric ring of cartilage that separates the vertebrae,  and when the spine is in motion, the discs keep grinding against each other. A bulging disc is caused due to increase in the age, injury or any disease related to the spinal cord and it is the condition in which the disc protrudes past the length of the vertebrae, and when it presses the spinal cord, it causes back pain.

Chiropractic care is the one of the most common alternative used to treat bulging discs. Chiropractic treatments are drug-free and non-invasive option for those who are suffering from back pain issues. Chiropractic care utilizes different techniques to help the disc retract back to it’s normal placement.

Steps and methods involved in the chiropractic treatment of the bulging disc

During the initial consultation process, a chiropractor in Lexington KY will require the full medical history of your body. He or she may also perform various tests on your body for posture, reflexes and any other physical markers.

In most cases, injections or any type of spine surgery is not required for the treatment of bulging disc. After checking the results of the test, a chiropractor in Lexington KY will use the techniques which require less force in order to gently manipulate the vertebrae and disc at the site of the injury.
