Bulging Disc

How Chiropractic Care Can Help a Bulging Disc

Any neck or back injury can cause a person to feel pain and discomfort in everyday movements. A bulging disc injury is no different, and can even cause numbness, tingling, and instability. Luckily, this injury is commonly treated by our chiropractor at Eulo Chiropractic Center. A chiropractor is a safe, non-invasive way to treat a bulging disc. Below, let's learn more about this injury and how a chiropractor can help.

What is a bulging disc?

The spine is made up of several small, connected bones called vertebra. In between each of these bones is a tiny, gel-filled object called a disc. The disc works as a cushioning device to absorb the impact of everyday movements. It is is donut shaped and filled with a type of water-based jelly. Sometimes the outside wall of the disc can become cracked or ruptured, causing some cushioning gel to escape. When this happens, the disc is said to be herniated or bulging. Typically, a bulging disc injury occurs as people age and the disc walls become thin and brittle. Occasionally though, the disc wall can be ruptured as a result of a blunt force trauma injury.

What are the symptoms of a bulging disc?

Symptoms will vary between people depending on the location and severity of the bulging disc injury. Pain is typically associated with this injury and can range from a dull ache to a sharp and stabbing pain. If the disc is ruptured in the upper back or neck, symptoms are commonly felt in the shoulders, arms, and hands. A mild tingling or numbness is quite common in people with a herniated disc. Alternatively, if the disc is ruptured in the lower back, the numbness and tingling are most often felt in the buttocks, legs, and feet.

How can a chiropractor help?

A chiropractor works with each individual patient to find a custom treatment plan to help relieve pain and the associated symptoms with a bulging disc. Using a variety of techniques including manual manipulation, stretching and strengthening exercises, and physical therapy, a chiropractor works to restore balance to the body. This is done by aligning the spine correctly to relieve undue pressure to the soft tissues of the spine, including the discs. By relieving pressure, the disc is free to heal correctly and naturally.

    Doc Eulo is nothing short of amazing. The staff is excellent. I said the same thing about them 21 years ago when I first starting going to Dr. Eulo. Back then he took care of me and my aching back when I was pregnant, and even adjusted my newborn!

    Dr. Eulo is awesome, he worked on my aches and pains in my back and upper legs by exercising and massaging them within a 6 month period 3 times a week I can truly say I am pain free, his caring and kindness helps too. I was able to connect not also with him by with his family too, they treated me with loving kindness, I will never forget him and will recommend him to anyone who needs a good Doctor.

    Dr Eulo is the best of the best and he is the coolest doctor that I know. August 2015 I was involved in a car accident, someone referred him to me, the first day I walked into his office I was in so much pain from my head to toe, I was a mess, three times a week for 6 months he was working on my aches and pains and I am here to tell you I'm pain free. Every time I walked in his office he put on my R & B Oldies did I say he was the coolest yes I did, he makes you feel very comfortable like one o

    Went to Dr. Eulo for treatment from an auto accident. The Dr. and his staff are very professional and makes your visit very pleasant. His knowledge and practice helped me very much with my injuries and I'm glad I chose Dr. Eulo as my chiropractor. If you're looking for a chiropractor, Eulo Chiropractic Center is the place to go!

    It is always a pleasure to go see Dr. Eulo. He is a very positive, caring and knowledgeable doctor. You will always leave his office with a smile on your face. His office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Eulo has successfully treated me for a frozen shoulder when an orthopedic surgeon thought that I would need surgery. My shoulder is fine now thanks to Dr. Eulo. He has also treated me for severe back spasms when I could hardly walk. Within a few days of treatment

    - Carol S.

    Dr. Eulo's treatments for my neck and back pain have been super helpful. He gives a thorough adjustment of neck, back and all joints and follows it up by a nice, relaxing massage bed. I leave the office feeling restored and like my body is back in it's best working condition. The office is neat and professional and Dr. Eulo is very down to earth, spends time with me and truly cares about my overall health. I've been to many chiropractors over many years, so I know a good chiropractor when I see

    - KellySue F.

    Dr. Eulo is the BEST chiropractor, hands down. The staff is friendly, the office is always clean, and Dr. Eulo is the nicest doctor. I have anxiety when it comes to doctors and going for "check ups" but Dr. Eulo makes me feel comfortable. I wish he could be my doctor for everything! I would recommend Dr. Eulo in a heart beat.
