Disc Degeneration – Yes, A Chiropractor Can Help That

How Chiropractors can treat Disc Degeneration

One of the biggest problems causing neck and back pain is degenerative disc disease. Degenerative disc disease can lead to severe pain and is as a result of wear and tear of spinal discs. It can also result in numbness around the arms and legs. Sometimes, the pain caused by Degenerative Disc Disease can be chronic, and other times it could be mild. Pain in the hips, thighs, and lower back many times are symptoms of degenerative disc disease in the lumbar vertebrae.

Studies have shown that degenerative disc diseases can occur as a result of aging. In general, it can be reasonably stated that everyone will experience degenerative disc disease at one point or the other in their lifetime.


Likely causes of degenerative disc disease

Apart from aging, which causes gradual wear and tear of the spinal disc, several other factors can cause degenerative disc disease. They include the following:

The Back Pain Article You Haven’t Seen Yet


  • Inflammation

Inflammatory proteins can contribute to disc degeneration in the spine. Muscle spasm and tension can develop in the neck and back region. Swelling in the nerves can also lead to numbness in the arm and legs, which can transfer into the shoulders, neck, and arm region.


  • Disc Dehydration

Dehydration of the annulus fibrosis can decrease the cushioning effect of the disc. Irregular motion in the vertebrae is as a result of the low cushioning ability of spinal discs and can hasten any potential damage.


How Chiropractors can help reverse disc degeneration

Chiropractors in Amarillo are experienced professionals who can help in reversing disc degeneration. With careful evaluation of the region affected by the degenerative disc, chiropractors can relieve pain and ensure the mobility of the joints. Chiropractors can reverse disc degeneration through the following means:

  • Non-surgical Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression in Amarillo has been a hallmark of our disc-related treatments for a decade. Creek Stone is certified in the Kennedy Decompression Technique and is uniquely positioned to resolve the majority of disc patients that undergo spinal decompression. It helps us to rehydrate the disc, reduce disc bulges, reduce disc herniation, reduce radiating pain into the extremities, and reduce pain and inflammation as a result of disc injuries.

  • Therapeutic Exercise

Also one of the starting points for disc-related treatment is McKenzie evaluation and exercises at Creek Stone Integrated Care in Amarillo, TX. It’s vital to understand if certain positions or certain movements tend to peripheralize or centralize pain and how to use that information to our advantage in order to generate and optimal exercise protocol.


  • Movement & Mentality
