A herniated disc, also known as a slipped or ruptured disc, is a relatively commong condition affecting the spine. A herniated disc occurs when the soft inner core protrudes through a tear or weak spot in the outer layer, which can lead to irritation of nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness, or weakness in the arms or legs.
At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, Dr. Mike Digrado is an expert in the treatment of herniated disc. Unlike other back pain experts, our clinic uses a combination of FDA cleared decompression therapy using one of our latest decompression tables, and our state-of-the-art deep tissue laser therapy for fast and lasting results.
A herniated disc can range in seriousness from mild to severe, and depending on the severity of your pain, Dr. Mike Digrado can recommend the right course of treatment with the idea to gently and therapeutically stretch the spine and eliminate the pressure that has been exerted on the delicate nerve in the area. Through repetition, and adding laser therapy to promote quick healing, the spine’s structure actually changes for the better, as patients experience permanent relief from their herniated disc pain.

Common Causes of Herniated Disc.
Disc herniation, also called bulged disc, slipped disc, or ruptured disc, occurs when the softer, pillowy shock absorbers which are located in between the vertebrae are torn, allowing the inner portion, called the nucleus to get pushed out of the outer layer and into the spinal canal. This happens if there is an injury, a tear, and degeneration. While a herniated disc can occur anywhere on the spine, most herniations occur in the lower back, or the lumbar spine. Based on which part of the spine is herniated, patients can feel mild to severe pain in that region which can only be corrected surgically or through decompression therapy.
