Dealing with Disc Pain in League City, TX

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps coming back, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.

Also known as a herniated disc, the pain caused by this condition can be extreme and in some cases debilitating.

Pain Caused by a Herniated Disc

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. But in some cases, symptoms will subside in six weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc cases.

If your disc pain lasts longer than six weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be an indication that it may not go away on its own. Other treatment options – including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment – should then be considered.

What Causes Discs to Slip?

Your spine is composed of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front part of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, known as the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what allow the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body from side to side. Our discs also absorb shocks that are transferred to the spine while running or jumping, for example,.

When you have a slipped disc, it means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it. There are three types of slipped discs:

  • Prolapsed Disc — This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still intact.
  • Extruding Disc – This means there is a tear in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. But the tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration – This is the most serious type of slipped disc. In this instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly attached to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs can be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.

If you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc, you should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals.

By gently manipulating the spine so that it returns to its normal state, our team of spinal disc doctors can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

I've been here several times for chiropractic treatment and massage. Both services are great. Dr. Vazquez taylors treatment specifically to your needs. Adjustments are never painful but are always effective. He utilizes additional therapies to increase healing. The massages are best I've had. If you're looking for a massage that provides actual relief, this is it. They are familiar with muscle anatomy and understand how to apply massage pressure to release pain and tightness. Everyone here from the techs who deliver the additional therapies, massage techs, the front desk, the Dr. himself are all a great team. From the moment you are greeted at the front door through the time of treatment, everyone is polite and professional. The facility itself is clean and very nice. Whether your pain is from an injury or just stress of life, I recommend giving them a try!

When I first moved to Texas I didn’t think I would find a chiropractor with the same level of knowledge as the one that I had in my home State. When I needed a chiropractor I found his place driving by and I decided to stop in. The first few visits, I didn’t let him touch my neck. I was scared because my previous doctor had finally fixed my neck after years of pain management. But as Dr Vazquez slowly gained my confidence I was able to let him treat me with no restrictions. Then I hurt my lower back and needed to go a specialist do the MRI and take oral cortisone, pain medication, muscle relaxant and finally a shot of cortisone in my spine. Dr. Vazquez, my chiropractor, started a stretch table treatment, laser and shockwave - that saved me. I still carry my cortisone pills, just in case, but I am living my life normally, of course a little bit more aware of my condition but no more Aleve, cortisone shots etc.. I can say that Dr Vasquez brought back my freedom to go anywhere I want. I do recommend him to all those out there who are in pain with a pinched nerve, sciatica, back pain etc.

I'm plagued by fibromyalga and polyarthritis. I've sought treatment for years to no avail. I'm two weeks into treatment now. This place is the only place that has treated me and given some relief from the symptoms. Hats off the the Dr and therapist! Many thanks. Worth the drive! Highly recommend!

Very professional and helpful. When I felt unheard by other physicians Dr Vasquez eased my concerns by explaining and educating me about the body’s anatomy. And that I wasn’t going crazy nor making things up. Shoot! I’m in pain! I was hopeless and giving up. Until I went to his office. He and his team were so helpful. It started at the entrance. The lady at the desk was kind and welcoming. I have to trust the process if I want to get back to my lifestyle of exercising, running, walking, working, etc. And I’m grateful to have a husband, a friend and concerned life partner who did the steps I couldn’t to find Dr. V! I appreciate Dr Vasquez’s honesty as well as his kind words. The bedside manner Dr. Vasquez and his team have are phenomenal! You ladies rock! Let’s keep thriving towards getting me back on both feet, balanced and feeling whole again!!!! Jeremiah 29:11

Keeps my back in shape to avoid missing work and the fun stuff in life. Update; I was a skeptic of acupuncture but it does help. Since I've tried it I have noticed an improvement in my overall health and well being.
