How Chiropractic Care Treats Disc Problems
The disc issue you suffer from will determine the type of chiropractic treatment necessary. Regardless,
Chiropractic care offers a nonsurgical option for treating the following:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Slipped discs
- Degenerative disc disease
With a full evaluation of the entire spine, a chiropractor will help to address the issue causing your back pain. If it’s a disc problem, the right chiropractic treatment will provide relief from the pain and an opportunity for healing. Most disc injuries are classified as a herniated disc, which can be treated with gentle spinal adjustments or spinal manipulation. Manual therapy and therapeutic exercises may also be used to help relieve the pain.
If you suffer from degenerative disc disease, the treatment may still include spinal adjustments, along with other treatments such as:
- Ellipsoidal traction
- Resistance techniques & stretching
- Trigger point therapy
- Interferential electrical stimulation
Whether you suffer from a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease, chiropractic care provides an alternative treatment option.
Causes of Disc Problems
Your disc issue may be caused by a number of things. Often, sports injuries cause disc issues, but it could also be related to repetitive movements, such as standing, bending, lifting, or driving. In addition, disc issues can be caused by improper lifting or any type of physical trauma you’ve suffered.
With chiropractic care at Floro Chiropractic in Eden Prairie, you will be offered treatment for various disc problems, regardless of the cause. After your initial evaluation and testing, a course of treatment will be recommended to offer you drug-free pain relief.

“When I first came to Floro Chiropractic, I was 50 years old going on 85. I could not walk normally. I could not enjoy my hobbies or gardening, biking or going for walks. I was in pain most of the time. I was seeing an orthopedic surgeon for 2 herniated discs in my neck and he was recommending surgery. I was also experiencing right arm weakness. As a last ditch effort before going under the knife, I decided to give Dr. Floro a try. I liked that she had a variety of methods in making adjustments which seemed less aggressive.
Today I am pain-free, thanks to Dr. Floro. I avoided having surgery. I am enjoying long walks and a flourishing garden. I can’t believe what a difference she made and I am eternally grateful.”
