Bulging Disc Treatment and How Chiropractic Care Help
Have you heard about bulging discs?
Maybe you have heard about them, but how can you tell if you have one?
Bulging discs are quite painful and require medical attention to stop the pain. Thankfully, Dr. James J. Hether, D.C. will help you identify if you have a bulging disc, and offer treatment via a very effective chiropractic method – spinal decompression therapy.
What Are Bulging Discs?
Spinal discs lie between the vertebrae and act as cushions to the spine as you move. Bulging discs occur when a disc in your spinal cord starts to deteriorate due to age or an injury. The wear and tear cause the discs’ cartilage to crack and bulge around the circumference – often compressing a nerve within the spine.

If you think you may have a bulging disc, then you can find relief with a chiropractic method called spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression involves the lengthening of the spine to relieve any pressure that bulging discs put on spinal nerves.
The procedure requires you to lie on a mechanically operated table, where Dr. Hether will strap you in and move the table by computer. You will find immediate relief after the first procedure and long-term relief with repeated procedures.
