Holistic Care for Degenerative Disc Disease With our Jacksonville Chiropractor
Our Jacksonville chiropractor, Dr. Alan Khiger, provides a holistic approach to care for degenerative disc disease. Discs are located between the vertebrae of your spine and through natural use and age, the discs begin to degenerate. These changes are due to a slight hardening of the cushiony discs, which can compress the vertebrae’s discs and can lead to pain. The pain occurs when the discs interfere with nerves that exit the spine or when the cushioning has decreased and you begin to feel more stress on each vertebra. Left untreated, disc degeneration can aggravate or lead to other spinal concerns such as sciatica, spinal stenosis and osteoarthritis of the spine.
If you are feeling some symptoms of degenerative disc disease such as neck or back pain, limited back mobility, muscle weakness or tingling sensations in your arms and legs, we invite you to Amazing Spine Care for a complete spinal evaluation. Dr. Khiger examines your spine to determine if chiropractic care is the best option to reduce your symptoms and restore your disc health.
Degenerative Disc Disease and Chiropractic Care in Jacksonville
Once you have your spinal evaluation, our chiropractor designs a care plan to eliminate your discomfort. Our chiropractic services merge with your body's own strengths to help your discs naturally restore themselves. Your chiropractic care plan may include any of the following treatments:
- Chiropractic adjustments- the key to restoring your discs and to eliminating pain is proper spinal alignment. Dr. Khiger gently manipulates the vertebrae so pressure is reduced from the discs. Over time, gravity presses on the spine and places stress on the discs, which can compress them and lead to pain. An adjustment to the vertebrae eliminates this stress and helps improve your flexibility. Our chiropractor may perform a manual adjustment or use a tool which is designed for pin-point precision.
- Exercises- we show you exercises to strengthen your core muscles that support your spine in proper alignment. These help to eliminate daily pain and also improve your overall posture.
- Lifestyle guidance- Dr. Khiger evaluates your work and play life to determine where small changes can be made to reduce pressure on the discs. This may mean an adjustment in your sleeping habits or the ways you lift objects.
