Dealing with Disc Pain in Fayetteville, AR

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps coming back, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.

Also known as a herniated disc, the pain caused by this condition can be extreme and in some cases debilitating.

Pain Caused by a Herniated Disc

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. But in some cases, symptoms will subside in six weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc cases.

If your disc pain lasts longer than six weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be an indication that it may not go away on its own. Other treatment options – including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment – should then be considered.

What Causes Discs to Slip?

Your spine is composed of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front part of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, known as the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what allow the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body from side to side. Our discs also absorb shocks that are transferred to the spine while running or jumping, for example,.

When you have a slipped disc, it means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it. There are three types of slipped discs:

  • Prolapsed Disc — This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still intact.
  • Extruding Disc – This means there is a tear in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. But the tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration – This is the most serious type of slipped disc. In this instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly attached to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs can be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.

If you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc, you should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals.

By gently manipulating the spine so that it returns to its normal state, our team of spinal disc doctors can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

If you or somebody you know is suffering from disc pain as the result of a slipped disc, contact us today for your free consultation. Our expert spinal disc doctors can tell you if gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is a good option for treating your pain.

Best place to come to. The staff is amazing. I love that they are Christ-centered. Dr. Spencer does an amazing job with my torn rotator cuff and my spouse’s knee and back. I love seeing everyone here. Everyone has a wonderful smile on their face and it is very inviting. Dr. Carroll makes amazing adjustments as well. Come here if you want someone who will listen to your aches and pains. If you also, want someone who will listen to you about nonsense come here. The atmosphere is amazing as well! Highly recommend them!! You are amazing Dr. Spencer!! My spouse and I have been coming here for a year and are very grateful for the center.

New to the area of Farmington and was referred by a friend to Dr. Spencer. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. They are always great about getting clients in within a timely manner and answering any questions we may have. With our insurance, adjustments are very reasonable and since we starting going on a monthly basis my husband and I have seen a huge difference. My husband has always complained of back pain and Dr. Spencer actually discovered why through x-rays! We were also given take home exercises to help improve/remedy further spinal issues. Thank you to the staff at The Wellness Center! If you are looking for an excellent chiropractor go see em!!
