Herniated discs normally occur due to degeneration of the disc through age. The discs in your back contain water, which aids flexibility. As you age, the amount of water in your discs is reduced. When this happens, it causes the discs to become more susceptible to damage. A herniated disc can occur anytime, and extreme exertion is not necessarily a factor.
You may have herniated discs and never experience any pain or discomfort. Sufferers will normally only notice there is a problem if the herniated disc affects local nerves, causing weakness in the lower limbs or back pain. Other common symptoms include numbness and tingling in areas of the body associated with the irritated nerves.
If you begin to experience numbness or weakness of the limbs, it could be caused by herniated discs. You may not need surgery for a herniated disc if you seek treatment soon after you begin to notice symptoms. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness can provide you with a treatment plan to relieve pressure on the nerves and help correct the position of the herniated disc.
Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness can provide a number of effective treatments, including massage therapy, spinal manipulation and pain management for the symptoms of herniated discs. We would first carry out a comprehensive exam to identify the key areas affected by the herniated discs before creating your treatment plan.
Our treatment plans are designed to take a number of factors into account, such as your lifestyle and other medical conditions. At Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness, we not only treat your herniated discs, we provide ongoing education on health and wellness to help you stay fit and strong long after treatment has ended.
If you have received a diagnosis of herniated discs, Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness wants to hear from you. Contact us today to make an appointment so we can provide you with the rehabilitation and treatment you need.

They treated me after two different injuries and I now have full range of motion, am pain-free, and feel like I’m good as new again. I’d highly recommend Dr. Surloff and Dr. Hochman – they’re amazing at what they do and they really care about helping you get better. Plus they’re more than just chiropractic – physical therapy, massage, IDD therapy and more.
In all my years of going to a Dr. I’ve never had someone with better bed side manners, personable, friendly and genuinely interested in your health care. His staff are the best, clean and punctual.
If you’re looking for a professional that has a heart, then go to Georgia Spinal and “stand up straight” again!.
I have had IDD, chiropractic, massage and physical therapy with them over the last few years and have nothing but good things to say about this practice. Everyone there is super friendly and you can tell that Dr. Hochman is genuinely concerned for your wellness
