Pain radiating down your spine, discomfort that spans from a dull ache to an incapacitating condition, herniated discs are a formidable foe for many. In the search for relief, many paths are explored, from medication to surgery, yet one often overlooks a pivotal approach nestled within the field of chiropractic care—the upper cervical way.
At Healthy Living Spinal Care, positioned in the scenic town of Hickory, NC, Dr. Joey Miles brings a specialized focus on the upper cervical spine's role in managing herniated discs. Understanding that the upper spine's health is crucial to the body's balance, Dr. Miles leverages his expertise to offer patients a unique form of care that targets the root cause of spinal ailments, not just their symptoms.
The Science Behind Herniated Discs
A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like center of a spinal disc pushes through a tear in the tougher exterior. It can compress nerves and cause pain or numbness in the limbs. While lower back pain is the most common symptom, the origin of the issue may trace back to the neck, where the spinal cord and nerve roots are located.
Dr. Miles's Approach to Herniated Discs
The precision of upper cervical chiropractic lies in its targeted approach. Instead of general spinal manipulations, care is concentrated on the uppermost vertebrae, which can influence spinal health down to the lower back.
