WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BULGING AND HERNIATED DISC?

A bulging disc is caused when the disc is pushing outside of its normal space. Think of a hamburger on a bun, and start moving the burger through the bun so it is sticking out. That is what a bulging disc can look like.

A bulging disc is not something that happens with a single twist or pull, but over time lifting improperly, or cumulative injuries this can happen. The body has a way of masking issues with muscle compensation. So naturally, pulled muscle is the first thing people think, but if not checked by a professional, that final twist can bring a grown man to his knees with the worst pain they have ever had.
A herniated disc is caused by a crack in the disc and the insides of the disc are pushing their way out. This can cause severe pain due to the crack in the disc itself, and the material that is being pushed through the crack is filling spaces within the spinal column causing pressure and pain.

The good news is research has shown Chiropractic and disc decompression therapy to be very effective and conservative tools in treating this condition. Surgery is always a last resort and the majority of times can be avoided giving the patient a future of health and happiness.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is when unwanted pressure is being exerted on the sciatic nerve (a bundle of nerves that comes from your lumbar and sacral spine that runs down the back of leg.) Symptoms of sciatica may vary, including but not limited to: pain that runs from the low back down the leg - potentially even to the foot, pain in the buttocks, knee or hip, tingling, burning sensations, numbness, and/or weakness.

Here at ASFCA we have many multiple ways to help with sciatica. Other than Chiropractic adjustments and Acupuncture, we offer disc decompression therapy, intersegmental traction, interferential muscle stimulation, soft tissue therapy, cold laser therapy treatments and therapeutic exercises which help correct the posture of what is tractioning the nerve.

Most patients visit us on a regular basis for adjustments, acupuncture and other therapies. One question we get quite often is “What can I do on my own to help keep my adjustment until the next visit?”

The answer is strengthening your body with physical therapy:

Dry Needling and Acupuncture both use small needles that are strategically placed, so what is the difference between the two techniques?

It is believed that the practice of Acupuncture started somewhere around 100 BC in China. The body has a natural flow of energy called Qi, and that energy flows through channels in a person’s body. These channels are called meridians and acupuncture helps remove the blockage of energy (Qi) within a person’s body that is causing them pain or other conditions.

Dry needling is not intended to treat issues with Qi or release toxins from the body through natural cleansing of the lymphatic system as acupuncture does. Also, dry needling only treats the symptoms of pain, not the cause.

Acupuncture has been proven to help alleviate a multitude of conditions such as Asthma and Allergies, Stress Reduction, Digestion Issues, Sciatica and much more.

Sports injuries can happen quickly. Some times they are very noticeable with instant swelling and pain, while other times the damaged muscle causes surrounding muscles to become overworked and easily injured from over-compensation.

ASFCA offers a variety of therapies and treatments to help heal from injuries.

While not all sports injuries can be avoided, ASFCA has treatment plans to help increase performance and help reduce the risk of future sports related injuries.

This past month, Kansas City has experienced all types of weather. We have gone from beautiful 80 degree weather and overnight to 35 degrees.

There is a standing joke that says, "if you do not like the weather in Kansas City, just wait a day. It will change." This has been true to its word.

Unfortunately, this drastic weather fluctuation creates immense barometric pressure changes and if you suffer from Fibromyalgia, you are feeling every drop and rise in the pressure.

Advanced Sports & Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture cannot cure Fibromyalgia, but the doctors and therapists can help to reduce the symptoms so you can live your life.

ASFCA knows that PAIN IS NOT A LIFESTYLE and that with an increase of inflammation, there is an increase in pain.

There are many therapies that can be utilized to minimize your Fibromyalgia such as:

- Acupuncture
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Cold Laser
- and much more!

Please contact our office today. We are here to put you back in control of your life, and not the pain!
