Herniated Discs in Coral Springs, FL
Discs Herniations, Bulge & Degeneration Treatment in Coral Springs, FL: The term “disc” refers to intervertebral discs which are the spongy cushions that separate the vertebrae of the spine. The spinal discs have a number of important functions including keeping the spine stable, shock absorption, and giving the vertebrae the ability to move.
A spinal disc is made of two parts, the elastic outer shell and the jelly-like contents within. It can handle quite a lot of pressure without damage, but certain types of pressure can damage the shell and push its contents out leading to pain and discomfort.
Treatment of herniated and bulging discs
These spinal discs can be damaged from an acute injury or from chronic wear and tear. When injury occurs or due to a result of aging or a degenerative condition, the disc begins to dry out, and the rings of cartilage weaken. Once that occurs, the gel-like center begins to bulge towards the outside of the disc, putting pressure on the surrounding spinal cord or nerves.
At Maan Chiropractic and Wellness, our approach to treatment of bulging and herniated discs include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Spinal Decompression Therapy

Degenerative disc disease
The discs of a young child are plump and moist, but the water content reduces with age until the discs are comparatively thin and hard. As a result of this, friction between the bones is thought to increase, resulting in growths called bone spurs around the discs.
In many cases, these age-related changes cause no problems, but some people experience a painful condition called degenerative disc disease. The most common symptom is back pain caused by holding the same position (either sitting or standing) for too long. It’s among the most common causes of chronic back pain in older people.
