Disc Herniation Types and SoftWave Therapy for Pain Relief at Nathans Family Chiropractic

Published November 16th, 2023 by Nathans Family Chiropractic

At Nathans Family Chiropractic in Jacksonville, FL, led by Dr. Alan Nathans, we specialize in treating disc herniations in the lumbar spine, a common source of debilitating pain. Our innovative approach includes SoftWave Therapy, a non-invasive solution that offers effective relief without the need for invasive procedures or long recovery times.

The Anatomy of Discs in the Lumbar Spine

The lumbar spine, consisting of five vertebrae separated by discs, relies on these discs for shock absorption and spinal flexibility. Each disc comprises an annulus fibrosus (the tough outer layer) and a nucleus pulposus (the gel-like inner core).

Types of Disc Herniations

  • Bulging Disc: The disc extends beyond its normal boundaries but remains intact.
  • Protruding Disc: The disc bulges and may press on surrounding nerves.
  • Extruded Disc: The inner core ruptures through the outer layer, often affecting spinal nerves.
  • Sequestered Disc: The inner core breaks free and moves into the spinal canal.

Causes, Symptoms, and Traditional Treatments

Disc herniations can result from age-related degeneration, repetitive strain, or sudden injury. Symptoms include localized back pain, radiating leg pain, numbness, and muscle weakness. Traditional treatments range from conservative methods like rest and physical therapy to more invasive options like corticosteroid injections and surgery.

SoftWave Therapy: A Superior Approach

  • Pain and Inflammation Reduction: Targets pain and inflammation for immediate relief.
  • Improved Blood Flow: Enhances circulation, promoting natural healing.
  • Stem Cell Activation: Encourages tissue repair and regeneration.
  • Enhanced Range of Motion: Improves mobility and flexibility.
  • Non-Invasive: Avoids risks associated with surgery and injections.
