Back Pain Due to Bulged Dic
A bulging disc is another name for a herniated disc This means that the inner nucleus of the disc (nucleus pulposus) is pressing against the outer disk wall (annulus fibrosus), causing it to bulge outwards. The disc still maintains the integrity of the outer wall. The wall has bulged outwards in a pocket, but has not ruptured, nor leaked any nucleus material.
This condition is sometimes accompanied with significant back pains, because the bulging disc can start to press on the nerves of the spine. Chiropractic can take care misalignments by manipulation and take crae bulged disks by TRACTION.
“Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back pcare providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients. Results from observational studies suggested that back pain patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than with medical care. Additionally, studies conclude that patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than they were with physical therapy after six weeks.”

The Chiropractic Approach Chiropractic care takes a conservative approach to lower back pain and potential disk problems – with the goal to help restore better motion and alignment in the spine without surgery or medication.
Spinal manipulation is the primary form of treatment, with chiropractors performing over 90 percent of all spinal manipulative therapy in the United States, according the the American Chiropractic Association website.
Besides reducing disc bulging, spinal manipulation can improve spinal function, which helps reduce inflammation, reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, and begin the process of healing the surrounding soft tissues
