Disc Hernias & Bulges

Disc herniation treatment in Stamford, CT

A major function of the disc is to create the separation between spinal bones so the nerves can exit the spine. When the spine goes out of place and the disc is injured, the disc can swell and take up part of nerve opening space. Chiropractic care can help patients with disc injuries by correcting the alignment of the misaligned vertebrae, taking pressure off the discs and nerves, and reducing the swelling in these tissues. In addition, our office utilizes specialized tables which allow us to traction and separate the vertebra – often giving immediate relief to our patients with disc bulges and disc herniation.

Surgery is often a medical recommendation for disc problems, however cutting away the bulging disc tissue can permanently alter its ability to separate and cushion the adjacent bones, and can contribute to additional back problems down the road.

And although sometimes necessary, surgery rarely addresses the underlying structural cause of the problem and can often be avoided with safe, effective Chiropractic care. Dr. Berglund has had tremendous success in helping patients with disc bulges and disc herniations fully recover.
