Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Herniated Discs Explained by Tustin Chiropractor

What exactly is a herniated disc? Top Tustin Chiropractor Raymond Bunch explains.

The word hernia means that part of something (typically an organ) is displaced and protrudes into an area where it doesn’t belong.

A disc is a tough fibrous tissue that is in between each spinal bone. It has a jell-like center which allows the disc to be more flexible.

Tustin Chiropractor Explains How Injured Discs Cause So Much Pain

When the disc is injured, the jell can get pushed out from the center and herniate into an area where your spinal cord and nerves are located.  This disc material does not belong in this space.

Irritation and pressure from the disc material on the nerves causes inflammation.

The inflamed nerve causes shooting pain that travels down your thigh and leg in different patterns depending on what nerve is being ‘pinched’ and irritated.

At Bunch Chiropractic, we have excellent conservative approaches to patients with a disc herniation.

All in all, my experience with Dr. Bunch had been very positive and I have him to thank for making me feel good as new every time I sit behind the drums. Thanks for kicking my butt Dr. Bunch it was worth every second!

I went in not knowing Dr. Bunch. He was very helpful and got my back the way it should be in about 20 minutes.

Definitely will recommend him to others.
