Do You Have Numbness and Tingling in the Legs? You May Have A Herniated Disc

Written By SunCoast SpineCare on September 4, 2018

One of the subtle signs that you may have a herniated, or slipped, disc is numbness and tingling in your legs. 

A herniated disc occurs when the hard, outer part of the disc is compromised and the jelly-like fluid inside leaks out. 

The leaking fluid causes irritation to surrounding nerves, resulting in neurological signs like tingling and numbness in legs, shooting pains, or low back pain, among others.

How Chiropractic Care Can Resolve Numbness in Legs

Chiropractic offers many ways to improve the neural symptoms of herniation, as well as increase function and minimize pain.

Cox Distraction, a technique used for more than 40 years that’s been successful in treating herniated disc pain and symptoms, is a safe, non-invasive way to deal with symptoms of disc herniation.

Its gentle, push-pull manipulation helps restore vertebrae to their normal position and relieves pressure on nerves to minimize the symptoms of pinching and irritation.

In addition, Vertebral Axial Decompression, or VAX-D treatment, is another revolutionary treatment for the leg pain and numbness caused by herniated or degenerated discs. 

The VAX-D device is designed to relieve pressure on structures like bulging or herniated discs that may be causing symptoms like numbness in legs. It is safe, effective and removes the risks associated with surgeries or injections. 

The device reduces the pressure within the discs from a positive pressure to a negative pressure that suctions the material of the disc into its normal location to relieve nerve compression and pain.

Studies have proven that VAX-D works —71% of participants in a VAX-D study reported successful treatment.
