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, these injuries can affect both the cervical (neck) and lumbar (back) regions of the spinal column. 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.

Treatment for Herniated Discs:

At Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine, chiropractor Jeff Fluitt is licensed in several techniques used to address and correct 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. Our track record of treating these injuries has made us a top resource in the Austin, Texas area.
