A slipped disk is actually a misnomer because they do not actually “slip.” Rather, they may herniate or bulge out from between the bones. Pain results when irritating substances are released from this tear and if fragments touches or compresses a nearby and nerve.
Herniated discs are most likely to affect people between the ages of 30 and 40. It is possible that it may be present without causing pain. The most common symptom is pain in the area of herniation that may radiate across the hips or into the products. You may also experience numbness or pain radiating down your leg to the ankle or foot. You may also notice weakness when extending your big toe and may be unable to walk on your toes or heels. In severe cases you may experience changes in your bowel or bladder function and may have difficulty with sexual function.
Exercise therapy and chiropractic care can treat mild to moderate disc herniation's. More advanced cases require some form of spinal decompression. Severe cases may warrant surgical intervention.
This is a catchall phrase that is commonly used to describe the pain associated with a variety of conditions from subluxations, to Tunnel syndromes, to the referred pain from trigger points (see
below) a pinched nerve is actually an irritated, or inflamed nerve where the nerve itself is not actually pinched.
In most cases they become irritated and inflamed when the bones, joints or muscles of the spine are not in their proper position, or are not moving properly this condition is called a "subluxations," the treatment of which is the specialty of a chiropractor.
Trigger points are very tight knots of muscles that form when muscles are either chronically overworked were injured, and are often experienced as a pitching were burning pain.
It is very important that the cause of any form of pain be properly diagnosed.
