The little pads that lie between your vertebrae are called the intervertebral discs. Each of these discs has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. Your disc's job is to both join and to separate your vertebrae from one another. These discs act as cushions, or shock absorbers, so that the bones don’t make contact with each other as you move around, carry large objects, and bend over. Here are a few of the different kinds of disc injuries that make movements of the upper torso painful and difficult:

  1. A bulging disc occurs when the disc becomes asymmetrical and the gel-like disc material is pushed out or bulging.
  2. A herniated disc is when the disc material has ruptured to the point that the gel pushes outward. It is possible that the disc material might move extensively into the area outside the vertebrae, affecting surrounding nerves. It is also possible for the disc material to detach from the disc itself.


Disc herniations tend to result in considerable back pain, numbness, and limitation in range of motion. This is due to the irritation of the nerve roots at the point where the injury occurs and the impact this has on the surrounding tissues. A number of distressing symptoms can arise from this nerve irritation and damage, including but not limited to:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Weak legs or feet
  • Leg and foot pain, numbness and tingling (also known as sciatica)


Chiropractic care in Little Neck for disc injuries has a proven track record of providing both short-term pain relief and long-term recovery. Chiropractic treatment involves a thorough assessment of your medical history, your present complaint, as well as a physical examination in order to determine the extent of the disc injury and the appropriate treatment.

We might also make recommendations regarding further imaging, testing, or referral to rule out any other underlying causes if we feel that it is necessary.

The approach that we take will be individually tailored to your specific issue. Treatment will include research-based techniques, including COX Technic, to the spine to relieve pressure on the nerves and to work toward decreasing your pain.
