What is an intervertebral disc?
Intervertebral discs are pads that have a tough outer membrane and a fluid filled center. Their function is to join together each vertebrae, as well as keep them separated, like shock absorbers. When they become asymmetrical, they start to bulge or perforate, which can cause unbearable pain, numbness, and range of motion issues because the nerve roots become irritated where the injury is. Symptoms are not limited to back pain. Others include neck pain, weak legs and feet, leg and foot pain, numbness and tingling(otherwise known as sciatica) and even loss of bladder and bowel control!
So what can a chiropractor do to help?
Dr. Bell, after assessing your medical history, will do a thorough exam to determine the extent of the injury and to create your customized treatment plan, which will always include gentle adjustments (either manual or instrumental) to alleviate your discomfort. We strive to be the best chiropractor in Knoxville.
