Disc Herniation

What is Disc Herniation?

Bulging or rupture of an intervertebral disc, leading to pressure on spinal nerves and potential pain, numbness, or weakness.

Disc Herniation

Understanding Disc Herniation:

A disc herniation, also known as a slipped, bulged, or ruptured disc, occurs when the intervertebral disc between vertebrae herniates, often exerting pressure on nearby nerves, causing severe pain. This can result in sharp, shooting pain traveling from the low back down the path of the sciatic nerve.


Sharp, shooting, or deep dull pain traveling through the buttock and down the leg, potentially causing weakness, knee buckling, or difficulty walking.

Common Causes:

Sudden loading and twisting of the spine, low back degeneration, weight gain, prolonged sitting, and repetitive twisting or loading motions contribute to disc herniation.

Effective Treatments:


Supportive braces to stabilize the spine and reduce strain on the affected area during recovery.

Hands-on Manual Therapy:

Targeted techniques to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote healing in disc herniation.

Acupuncture/Dry Needling:

Alternative therapies addressing pain and muscle tension, offering relief for disc herniation.

Massage Therapy:

Therapeutic massage interventions to reduce muscle tension and aid in the recovery from disc herniation.

Posture Correction and Education:

Implementing strategies to improve posture and educate on preventing strain to the spine after a disc herniation.


Engaging in exercises to strengthen the spine and supporting muscles, preventing future disc herniation issues.

Chiropractic Care:

Professional adjustments addressing underlying causes of disc herniation and promoting alignment for pain relief.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Laser Therapy do?

Laser therapy emits low level laser light to accelerate and promote healing, relieve pain of damaged tissue, and help to reduce inflammation. Laser therapy also helps with the collagen production in the body, which forms connective tissue. Collagen is important for our skin, bones, muscles, tendons, and overall body function.

How will Interferential Current (IFC) help?

Electrotherapy focuses on relieving pain, increasing blood flow, reducing swelling, and improving the healing process. IFC can help with the range of motion and restore mobility of muscles of injured areas.

Why Does Moist Heat help?

Using a moist heat pack helps target deep into the tissues, as well as increasing circulation around the injured area. This type of heat helps loosen tight muscles and improve mobility, therefore helping the body to heal faster.

What is a therapeutic Ultrasound?

Ultrasounding an affected area uses ultrasonic waves and tiny vibrations to improve pain and increase blood flow and circulation. Ultrasound therapy helps promote the healing of tissues and swelling of an affected area.

What is Patient Education?

At All Injury Management our team works hard to help our patients understand their own recovery process. We thrive everyday to teach proper techniques of exercise, as well educating patients on risks and benefits of our services.
