Herniated Discs

Herniated discs are among the most commonly treated spinal conditions treated at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine. Also known as slipped discs or ruptured discs, herniated discs can affect both the cervical (neck) and lumbar (back) regions of the spine. Herniation can arise from several causes, including degenerative disease, trauma to the back or neck, sports injuries and improper bending or lifting. People with physically-demanding jobs also commonly suffer this type of injury.

Herniated discs occur when some of the soft, jelly-like center pushes through a fissure in the exterior of the disc. This can cause pain, numbness, tingling, sciatica or muscle weakness, although symptoms are not always present.


At Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine, Dr. Jeff Fluitt is licensed in several chiropractic techniques used to address herniated discs. Common treatment modalities include Spinal Decompression, McKenzie exercises and MLS Laser therapy, among others. A personalized treatment plan will be developed after a thorough initial evaluation.
