Woman rubbing her neckA bulging or herniated disc refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (discs) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine.

Space for Nerves

The disc is a special cartilage between the bones of your spinal column. It attaches to the vertebra above and below. This creates the separation between spinal bones so pairs of nerves can exit the spine.

A spinal disc is a little like a jelly donut, with a softer center encased within a tougher exterior.   Healthy spinal discs act as; shock absorbers between adjacent vertebrae, ligaments that hold the vertebrae of the spine together forming joints that allow for mobility.

A  bulging or herniated disc can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg. On the other hand, many people experience no symptoms from a herniated disc. The good news is that most people who have a herniated disc don’t need surgery to correct the problem.

Dr. Logullo is a National Board Certified Chiropractor and Sports Medicine Specialist with over seventeen years experience helping with the most troubled spines.

Some of the most advanced and scientific conservative treatment strategies available in the country.

We offer a complimentary consultation with Dr. Logullo. The consultation is a very important starting point to help find the answers to your disc problems. Dr. Logullo will take the time to listen, REALLY LISTEN, to your individual history. He will ask important questions to help better understand the nature of your injury. This gives great clues on how to properly address your specific problem.

After the consultation, the next step is a thorough neurokinetic chain assessment to evaluate the spine and structures that influence spinal function. Nerve, joint and muscle function are all assessed. We often see problems with areas that are distant from the site of pain. By addressing the related biomechanics and neurological issues, the best outcomes are achieved.

X-ray and MRI?

It is very important to not just rely on x-ray or MRI findings alone to define the problem. MRI findings without the context of a proper history and exam can be misleading. If you have had an MRI, Dr. Logullo can interpret and correlate the findings with your history and evaluation. If you have not had these tests, don’t worry! Dr. Logullo can order and interpret X-ray, MRI and other tests if he feels they are needed. Most people never require an MRI to recover from a spinal disc injury.

One of the keys to success is an individualized and specific treatment plan based off of the information from your consultation and evaluation. In a report, the doctor will discuss his findings and recommendations. He will take the time to answer any of your questions or concerns prior to treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How does chiropractic help disc problems?

The purpose of chiropractic care is to locate and correct areas of the spine interfering with the proper nervous system control of your body. Because the intervertebral discs are so close to the spinal cord and nerve roots, disc involvement is quite common in chiropractic cases. Chiropractic adjustments help restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones, reducing nervous system involvement. If caught before permanent damage, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape by restoring proper motion and position of affected spinal joints.

Aren’t disc problems simply the normal aging process?

No. However, many disc problems are the result of years of neglect. Many spinal problems are nonsymptomatic until the advanced stages of degeneration. There are many cases of elderly patients who have maintained their spine throughout their lives who enjoy excellent spinal health and function.

I didn’t do anything so how can a disc be involved?

This is a common refrain. Because our bodies are unusually adaptive, we can often accommodate a variety of stresses for years. Finally, like the “straw that broke the camel’s back,” we turn or bend funny and suddenly our spine succumbs to the accumulation of stress.
