Herniated Disc FAQs

Chiropractic care is very effective at treating pain related to herniated discs. If you live in Nocatee, Ponte Vedra Beach, or the surrounding areas, contact Dr. Hamer at Ponte Vedra Wellness Center for pain relief. We will perform a thorough examination and create a customized treatment plan that is designed to support the recovery process. Let’s look at some of the questions that we run into regarding herniated discs.

What is a Herniated Disc?

Spinal discs provide a cushion between your vertebrae. The inner disc can become pushed to one side, leading to a bulge, herniation, or even a rupture. Herniated discs are common injuries that can lead to dysfunction and pain.

What Causes Herniated Discs?

Any force to the spine or odd movement can cause a disc to herniate. Herniated discs can also be caused by a fall or an accident.

Are There Risk Factors to Getting a Herniated Disc?

Age is a common risk factor since your discs dry out as you get older. Generally, men aged 30 – 55 are more likely to develop herniated discs and people who sit a lot or are overweight.

What Are Some Signs That I Have a Herniated Disc?

Herniated discs do not always cause symptoms, however, some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Numbness or weakness in a limb due to nerve compression
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Muscle spasms
