What is a “slipped” disc?

Herniated Disc

Ever wondered if a “slipped disc” is the same thing as a bulging, ruptured or herniated disc … read this to find out.

And here are a few herniated disc symptoms:

  • pain and numbness, most commonly on one side of the body
  • pain that extends to your arms and/or legs
  • pain that worsens at night
  • pain that worsens after standing or sitting
  • pain when walking short distances
  • unexplained muscle weakness
  • tingling, aching, or burning sensations in the affected area

And for those unaware, chiropractic spinal manipulation has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective tool in the management of disc problems, especially combined with therapeutic exercise. Your doctor of chiropractic will likely prescribe both for you.
