Chiropractors treat patients with disc conditions every day.
Disc problems can be very complex, the disc can get injured or inflamed, it can degenerate, it can put pressure on the nervous system if damaged or inflamed. Did you know that the way your body provides nutrients to disc spaces is dependent upon the movement of your spine? The more stiffness and lack of motion you have in the spine, the harder it is for your body to get nutrients to the disc space appropriately. The result can be a damaged or degenerated disc space which can be extremely painful and can debilitate your normal daily activities. Our doctors and staff understand how vital it is to keep your spine and surrounding tissues and nerves healthy, and we excel at helping you to understand exactly how chiropractic care impacts the health of these areas. Did you know that the disc spaces in your back are important for providing a cushion between the bones, maintaining the opening for the nerves to exit AND they are full of neurons that communicate to the brain. Making every effort to keep your disc spaces healthy is essential for your well-being.
Drinking water is essential for a healthy disc space. Most recommendations are to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water (plain water with nothing flavored or added to it) per day. So a person weighing 100 pounds, would drink 50 ounces of water per day.
