Thayer Chiropractic Method for Herniated Discs
What are Herniated Discs?
Your spine is made up of 24 vertebrae, and in between those vertebrae are softs discs. These help to cushion the vertebrae as you move throughout your day, protecting your delicate spinal cord. Occasionally, these discs can slip out of place and begin to irritate the surrounding nerves, causing extreme pain.
Herniated discs can be caused by several things, including:
- Being overweight
- Sports injuries
- Degenerative diseases, etc.
Herniated Disc Treatment with the Thayer Chiropractic Method
Traditional medical treatments for herniated discs tend to fall short in treating patients' pain at the very source. While medications have their time and place, herniated discs can often be treated by chiropractic methods, such as the Thayer Chiropractic Method.
The Thayer Chiropractic Method for herniated discs focuses on bringing balance back to the head and neck, therefore helping to rebalance the spine as well. When your head is off-balance, it causes your skull to jut forward ever so slightly. While that may not seem like a big deal, that small change increases the skull's overall weight by 8-12 pounds.
That is a significant amount of weight that your neck now has to carry, which further throws off your spinal balance. The Thayer Chiropractic Method helps by bringing the skull back into proper placement, relieving the strain on your neck and allowing your spine to return to its natural positioning. During this process, your herniated discs start to return to their normal placements as well.
