have you ever heard the terms “herniated or bulging discs?” How about “disc rupture” or “disc sequestration?” Essentially, they all mean the same thing. But what do they mean, and how do you know if they apply to you?

A spinal disc is the spongy tissue between each of the vertebrae in your spinal column. A bulging disc happens when your spinal discs become damaged. They herniate, or press out against the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This can be very painful, and it can also create a feeling of numbness.

So why does this happen? It can be a slow and gradual process. Many people think that pain occurs exactly when the spinal disc is damaged, but in truth, if your spine is injured or sustains some form of trauma, the disc can slowly break down. In time, you’ll eventually feel lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, arm pain, and tingling.

But at Progressive Health and Rehab, there’s hope. We offer a revolutionary bulging disc and herniated disc treatment. After performing MRI’s, cat scans and/or x-rays, we’ll be able to determine exactly where the problem is. Then, through spinal decompression therapy or other highly effective treatment methods, such as physical therapy, botanical injections or chiropractic manipulation, you’ll be able to finally get results. Best of all, since we are an integrated clinic, this treatment is covered by most major insurance plans.

Finally, you may not need to undergo risky surgeries or take unnecessary prescription medication. Contact us today for a free consultation, and we’ll help you get your life back.
