Bulging or herniated disc can cause a variety of issues and pain. The most common bulging disc in the lumbar spine is L5/S1. It generally is known for causing sciatica. Sciatica is a pain that makes one leg hurt, deep inside like a bone pain for many people. Sitting or car rides often make your symptoms worse.
At Moreland Chiropractic Clinic in Rolla MO we treat bulging or herniated disc with treatment know as Cox method. It is a long axis distraction method. It is very effective and very gentle. Treatment sessions are generally a half hour long, two to three times a week for 4 weeks. Sometimes longer if there are complications or the patient has had sciatica for a long time.
Home care and exercise is very important as well. The patient is asked to strengthen his or her spine. These exercises are available on this web site. They should be done daily to the patients tolerance.
