Common Causes of Herniated Discs
According to Dr. Conrad and many experienced chiropractors in the Lansdale Pa area, aging is one of the biggest causes of herniated or bulging discs. As we grow older, the shock-absorbing quality of our spinal discs starts to become weak, which makes them stiff and exposed to injury or damage over a period. Other causes include:
• Sports or athletic activities
• Repetitive standing, lifting, driving, or bending
• Physical trauma after a fall or accident
• Use of improper lifting methods
• Unhealthy habits
Chiropractic Technique for Treating Herniated Discs
Dr. Conrad follows an inclusive approach to treat your herniated disc. After identifying the problem area, Dr. Conrad uses his expertise in different techniques to alleviate the pain and help patients recover at a faster pace including spinal decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, therapeutic core exercises, and therapeutic massage therapy..
Dr. Conrad’s chiropractic treatment for herniated discs involves administering gentle spinal adjustments. Manual adjustments are made to set the vertebrae into a position of healthier alignment. This results in taking off excess pressure from discs and allowing the body to move them into their original position naturally.
