What Causes Spinal Disc Herniations?

Throughout our lives, we have physical stress on our body, some being acute such as falls, traumas, accidents and others which can be chronic such as sitting for long periods, working at a desk for long periods, using computers or phones or even just standing for long periods.

These physical stresses may cause us to lose our normal alignment placing the spine in a weakened position.

At first, this causes no pain but, as the spinal structures are continuously abnormally loaded, they begin to break down leading to spinal damage and eventually the development of pain and functional loss.

Asymmetrical loading of the disc as a result of abnormal alignment causes nuclei pulposi to shift, creating a concentrated pressure to eventually break down the annulus fibres.

Decreased motion of the disc and joints prevents hydration and nutrients metabolic waste exchange causing dehydration and the development of discopathy (protrusion/ herniation).

At Sunset Chiropractic & Wellness our team goes beyond conventional medicine by offering services and techniques which can relieve symptoms while at the same time addressing and resolving the underlying causes of your particular dysfunction.
