Herniated / Bulging Discs
Discs act like shock absorbers between vertebrae. When healthy, discs are sponge-like and keep the spine flexible. However, when discs age or are injured, the outer shell can tear and break open, forcing the gel inside the disc out. Although they can occur in any part of the spine, most herniated discs occur in the lumbar (lower back) or cervical (neck area) spine. When they press on nerves, herniated discs can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the area of the body affected by the nerve.
I went to Dr. Drummond because my sister had received relief from neck pain that we both have suffered. After one visit I received some relief from the pain running up the right side of my neck and up into the right side of my head. As I continued treatment I received more and more relief. I have recommended the type of chiropractic that Dr. Drummond practices to a number of my friends.
