Taking Care Of Disc Pain in Philadelphia, PA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

What is Disc Pain?

If you have lower back pain that keeps recurring, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and in to your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc. Also known as a herniated disc, the pain triggered by this condition can be extreme and in some cases debilitating.

Pain Triggered By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. In some cases, symptoms will subside in 6 weeks or less. This holds true in about 90% of herniated disc occurrences.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps reoccurring over a period of several months or years, this can be a sign that it may not go away on its own. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Triggers Discs to Slip?

Your spine is composed of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front component of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, named the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what make it possible for the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body back and forth. Our discs also soak up impacts that are transferred to the spine while jumping or running, for example.

It means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it when you have a slipped disc. There are three types of slipped discs:.

  • Prolapsed Disc— This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still intact.
  • Extruding Disc— This means there is a tear in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. But the tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration— This is the most serious type of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly connected to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs may be extremely painful, most people struggling with a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.

You should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals if you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc.

By gently manipulating the spine so that it resumes its normal state, our team of spinal disc doctors can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

After over a decade of back and sternum pain, I trusted Dr. Paul with treating my chronic problems. He was confident in his plan, and within days I had much needed relief. He provided me with great advice and exercises to perform at home which helped me to build strength and get back to the things I love. So very thankful our paths crossed. Dr. Paul helped me so much. His staff is so very friendly, and accommodating. The office was always clean with proper Covid prevention procedures in place. Mostly decent music, ha! I highly recommend this practice.

I came to see Dr. Roscioli after years seeing other chiropractors and being told my neck and shoulder pain would never go away. After our first meeting, he was confident he could fix my problems. Only a few weeks later and I am almost completely pain free. The Dr. is great and his support staff are friendly and prompt. I recommend him to anyone who has been told they can’t be helped or even if you are just looking to feel better. Thanks, Dr!
