Herniated / Bulging Discs
Just like a vehicle, discs play the role of shock absorbers between the vertebrae in the human body. As humans age over time, however, the discs in the body either wear out or suffer from injuries like the outer shell tearing apart or breaking open, expelling the gel within the discs.
Most herniated discs occur in the lumbar (lower back) or cervical (neck area) spine, although they can break out at any point of the human spine. Herniated discs cause chronic pain, numbness, and weakness when they press on nerves within the body.
I went to Dr. Major because my sister had received relief from neck pain that we both have suffered. After one visit I received some relief from the pain running up the right side of my neck and up into the right side of my head. As I continued treatment I received more and more relief. I have recommended the type of chiropractic that Dr. Major practices to a number of my friends.
