Herniated Disc Treatment NYC | Non Surgical Treatment Explained | Call 646-553-1884
http://ift.tt/1oniSXd Dr. Alex Eingorn at Better Health Chiropractic in NYC has been treated patients with back and neck pain from herniated discs since 1989. In this video Dr. Alex Eingorn of Better Health Chiropractic in New York City, describes a herniated disc as he often does with patients when they first arrive at his practice with herniated discs.
Herniated discs are very common and we see a lot of patients with disc herniations and most people don’t understand right away what it means.
Discs are cushions that basically cushion the peace between the vertebrae in the spine. They allow us to have free movement and they allow us to absorb shock and they also prevent the vertebrae and joints from collapsing into each other. They also allow space for the nerve roots to feed and collect information from the brain.
Here is a model of a normal disc for you to see. This is the normal disc that is similar to a jelly donut. It has a liquid, a gelatinous substance inside called the “nucleus pulposus” and a very tough but flexible outer ring called the “annulus fibrosus”. Here is the spinal cord right here behind the disc and the nerve roots are right here. So it is a very sensitive structure.
Now herniated discs can happen in the neck, in the mid back, which is rather rare but it can happen sometimes, and they happen in the lower back. Most of the time we will see a patient with a disc herniation in the lower back, that is the most common. Since there are many levels of vertebrae, the problems can occur at many levels.
The symptoms also can vary depending on the type of disc herniation and where it is in the body.
