As soon as you notice the emergence of back pain, it's in your best interest to call your local chiropractic clinic as quickly as possible and schedule an appointment as soon as you're able. Doing so is especially advantageous if you're suffering from sharp, acute pain, which is often the result of having a herniated disk. This condition, in which one of the disks in your spine becomes forced out of its natural alignment with the other disks, can be extremely painful and can occur quickly as a result of a major injury or over time, for example, as a result of chronic poor posture. Here are some recognizable signs that you've developed this back problem.
Sudden Movements Take Your Breath Away
Part of the pain of a herniated disk comes from the fact that one or more of your disks may be putting pressure on the nerves that run along the spine. Nerve pain is often categorized as sharp and extremely painful — so much so that it can actually take your breath away for a moment. If you find that standing, sitting, bending or other such movements seem take your breath away or even cause you to involuntarily cry out in pain, there's a chance that you're dealing with a herniated disk.
You Experience A Wide Range Of Uncomfortable Feelings
Herniated disks can affect people in a variety of different ways, based on the severity of the issue and the location of the problematic disk. Some people will experience a burning sensation in their backs, while others will notice an irritating tingling feeling. Others will feel as though the pain is shooting from one spot to another. In this case, you might feel acute pain in a specific area of your spine, but have the sensation that the pain is extending — like miniature bolts of lightning — to the surrounding muscles.
It's Time To Take Action
It can be difficult to live comfortably with a herniated disk. In many cases, sitting and lying down will feel next to impossible, which could compromise your ability to go to work or to sleep soundly. It could take your chiropractor a few adjustments to completely fix the issue, but there's a strong chance that you'll experience relief after just the treatment. This back health expert will manipulate your spine in an attempt to let the herniated disk slide back into proper alignment — and take pressure off your nerves. Contact a clinic, such as SpineCare Chiropractic Daniel S. Wright, D.C. for more information.
Hello there! I'm Jessica Goodyear. I am an unofficial expert on cosmetic procedures--mostly because I've had a lot of them done. Some people judge me or think I'm fake, but I feel more like myself than I ever have before! It all started when I was a teenager. I broke my nose playing softball, and I had to have plastic surgery on my nose so that I could breathe properly. But my nose looked different afterwards, and I liked it better! Now I save up my money to get something done every few years. Whether it's teeth whitening or veneers, a little bit of liposuction, or new cheekbones, there's something so satisfying about letting your inner beauty shine out through your outer body. I started this site to help break the stereotypes about cosmetic surgeries and to talk about some of the health risks related to them. Check it out!
