Coping With Disc Pain in Kennesaw, GA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Disc Pain.

If you have lower back pain that keeps returning, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, perhaps it’s an indicator that you have a slipped disc. Known as a herniated disc, the pain caused by this condition can be dire and in some cases crippling.

Pain Brought On By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. In some cases, symptoms will go away in 6 weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc cases.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be an indication that it may not go away by itself. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Triggers Discs to Slip?

Your spine is composed of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front portion 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, called the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what enable the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body back and forth. Our discs also absorb impacts 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 whole.
  • 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. The tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration– This is one of the most serious kind of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly connected 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.

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

By gently manipulating the spine to make sure 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.

Finding Disc Centers of America and Dr. Taylor changed my life! I was in constant pain, unable to do normal everyday... chores, and at times only able to walk with a cane. The non surgical spinal decompression therapy is pain free and so easy to do it's hard to believe it actually works, but I am living proof that it really does! Dr. Taylor and Becky are such kind and welcoming people, they make the experience so positive and enjoyable that I didn't want it to end. They really care about their patients well being and lives. Highly recommend!!!read more

Disc center has been an absolute blessing for me. I’ve been dealing with Sciatica nerve pain and lower back pain for... over 10 years now. No doctor has been able to relieve me of any pain. In just just 9 sessions of treatment, I am gaining better mobility and participation in more activities like cooking, bathing, walking and shopping. I feel like I am regaining my life again after so many years of pain. I was very depressed and felt like I had no more solutions and only options was surgery. But Dr. Taylor has giving me hope and I am regaining my confidence and my life back. So I highly recommend Disc Center for anyone suffering in back pain and sciatica. We appreciate you very muchread more

Dr Taylor and staff are incredible. Recently I injured my shoulder at the gym, Dr Taylor used a Cold Laser to help... speed up healing. After 6 sessions with the laser, I’m no longer in pain. I truly recommend using the laser treatment. Thank you Dr Taylor!!read more

I am so incredibly thankful that I found ProSpine. From being a dancer for over 20 years and having a handful of joint... and back problems, Dr. Taylor has helped me tremendously. He's helped me understand the importance of long term and preventative care. I have trusted him with my back injuries and I have never felt better. I have never understood my body better than I do today. His secretary Sherice is also extremely sweet. She makes sure that you have every alert possible for your appointment and has a great personality. Both her and Dr. Taylor make a great team and leave you wondering why you've never visited before. It's not worth being in pain every day. Schedule your appointment now!read more

I have been receiving excellent care from Dr. Raymond Taylor at this facility since he became the owner. Dr. Taylor is... very knowledgeable about the muscular and skeletal system and can pinpoint the exact location of my pain quickly during examination. I was suffering from sciatica and Dr. Taylor has resolved it to the point that it has not returned. I recommend Dr. Taylor and continue to get an adjustment once a month and it has made a world of difference. By the way, I am 74 1/2 years old and I feel like Dr. Taylor at ProSpine Wellness keeps me going!read more

Where to begin? Dr. Taylor has great chair side manner, he’s very knowledgeable and patient. He really hears out the... problem and then works his magic finding those trigger points. Every time I leave his office I feel renewed. He also gives me pointers on how to make myself comfortable in between sessions. Another thing I love is the privacy in between patients (especially during a pandemic) patients are not scheduled overlapping each other and when you’re there you have the doctors attention which like many of us have experienced that’s not the usual case. You’re not just a number- you’re an actual patient that is cared about at Prospine wellness.Keep it up! 🙂read more

Dr. Taylor is awesome! He is very attentive and listens to what you need. He then tailors your treatment to your own... specific needs. Most chiropractors I’ve been to have just given me a generalized treatment without addressing my individual issue. I come visit Dr. Taylor every week now and it is life-changing. Best chiropractic experience I’ve ever had.read more
