Herniated / Bulging Discs

Just like a vehicle, discs play the role of shock absorbers between the vertebrae in the human body. As humans age over time, however, the discs in the body either wear out or suffer from injuries like the outer shell tearing apart or breaking open, expelling the gel within the discs.

Most herniated discs occur in the lumbar (lower back) or cervical (neck area) spine, although they can break out at any point of the human spine. Herniated discs cause chronic pain, numbness, and weakness when they press on nerves within the body.


It was the week before Thanksgiving I literally crawled into Dr. Doug’s office in pain, laughing and crying at the same time. Dr. Doug took the time with me to examine my situation and recommend a treatment plan, was I skeptical to believe what he was telling me was true, yes, of course, this was all new to me, but the pain in my back and not being able to sleep, stand or walk without being in pain was just too much. After a few visits and doing the routine he set up for me things started to get better and my life was back on track again, I learned how my eating habits were a big part of why I was feeling the way I was and with some time I was able to change my life around for the better. Thanks to Dr. Doug for making me whole again and teaching me about the right way to live.
