Herniated Disc, Sciatica, Sciatic Nerve, Back Pain, Back AcheHow can a person know if they are experiencing pain from a herniated disk? You might have one and not even be aware of it. However, they may also cause you intense pain. One of the symptoms is feeling a tingling sensation as if your arm or leg is asleep. You may also experience weakness in the muscles that are affected by the herniation. It may cause you to be unable to lift something or even to stumble while walking. Another symptom to look for is pain in your arm or leg. Whether if affects your arm or your leg largely depends on where the damaged disk is located.

What Is a Herniated Disc?

The disks located in your vertebrae are protected by a gel-like substance that keeps the bones from grinding together. When a herniation occurs, some of this gel leaks out of place. It then causes irritation to the surrounding nerves and muscles. This makes it easier for the disks to then shift. Sometimes this is referred to as a slipped disk. If this area then becomes inflamed, it can cause severe pain.

What Can Be Done?

At this point, it is important to relieve the pressure being put on the nerves and muscles from the herniated disk. This is done by getting the spine back into its proper position. If your weight is just slightly unbalanced, it will lead to more pain from the herniated disc. It is highly recommended that you seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.

Dr. Brett Gottlieb of Fair Oaks, California is an upper cervical chiropractor who has been trained to detect misalignments in the spine. He will specifically focus on the bones in the upper part of the neck. If a misalignment is found here, it can lead to all kinds of problems throughout the body. It can be a cause of improper posture, uneven weight distribution, and extreme pain from a herniated disk.

Once Dr. Gottlieb finds the misalignment, he can then work with you to correct it through gentle, precise adjustments. You should begin to feel some relief after your first visit. Why not contact him for an appointment as soon as possible?

When a Person Suffers Connective Tissue Damage

Whiplash, Neck Trauma, Neck Injury, Migraines, HeadachesDo you think your migraines are connected to a recent injury, or perhaps one in your past? You are probably right, especially if the accident or injury resulted in whiplash. Whiplash is usually treated with pain medication, but that doesn’t fix the underlying damage to connective tissue or the degeneration that occurs as a result. Consider the importance of connective tissue.

How Your Spine Is Affected

Supporting the spine is one of the most important functions of connective tissue. When that tissue is damaged (by whiplash, for example), the spine can start to degenerate. This causes particular issues when a misalignment occurs in the top two vertebrae. Just ¼ millimeter of misalignment can result in decreased flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid to the brainstem. Migraines can occur as a result.

How can you restore proper nervous and vascular system function? An upper cervical chiropractor, like Dr. Brett Gottlieb from Fair Oaks, California, can examine your C1 and C2 vertebrae to determine if a misalignment exists and its extent. Then a personalized adjustment schedule can be set up to restore proper alignment. Once the C1 and C2 are back in place, you body can take it from there.

Many find that their migraines improve with just a few adjustments and that complete resolution of migraines is the ultimate result. You probably agree that this is a much better prognosis than simply treating migraines with pain medication as they occur.

CBS news is reporting on a new study finds that people with migraines who also are depressed have smaller brains.  "Our study suggests that people with both migraine and depression may represent a unique group from those with only one of these conditions," study author Dr. Larus S. Gudmundsson, a researcher at the National Institute on Aging and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, in Bethesda, Md., said in a news release.
