Dealing with Disc Pain in Winter Park, FL

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps recurring, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.
Also known as a herniated disc, the pain triggered by this condition can be extreme and in some cases debilitating.

Pain Brought On By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. In some cases, symptoms will go away in 6 weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc cases.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be a sign that it may not go away by itself. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Brings About Discs to Slip?

Your spine is made up of a chain of bones called the vertebrae. The front part of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, known as the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what allow the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body from side to side. Our discs also soak up impacts that are transferred to the spine while running or jumping, for example,.

When you have a slipped disc, it means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it. There are three types of slipped discs:.

  • Prolapsed Disc: This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still intact.
  • Extruding Disc: This means there is a rip in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. But the tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration: This is one of the most serious kind of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly attached to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs can be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

I have been coming to deal with "adhesive capsulitis" on my shoulder. The treatment of adjustments, laser and... stimulation has helped tremendously. Almost as importantly, the staff is so positive and nice, it is a treat to visit the office!read more

A friend recommended Dr. Roffler to me. I have been in low back pain for many years. I have been adjusted and... adjusted again only to have the same issue continue. I was informed that I have herniated discs. I am in the process of decompression treatments and although I haven’t yet experienced totally painless days, I have experienced some pain free days. The sun is shining and I have hope. The doctor is knowledgeable and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend this office!read more
