The Symptoms of Disc Problems

Spinal disc problems are a common occurrence. Spinal disc issues can be remedied with the help of a chiropractor. It is important to find a chiropractor who is experienced and has a vast knowledge of spinal disc problems for issues like sciatica, slipped discs, and more. If you are experiencing any of the following disc problems and live in the Sioux City area, contact our team at Multicare Health Clinic to reduce or eliminate your disc problems.

Herniated or Slipped Discs

One of the most common spinal disc problems patients have is a herniated disc, which is sometimes referred to as a slipped disc. The spinal disc has a softer inside layer and a harder, tougher exterior layer. When the soft layer tears through the hard layer, the nerves will become irritated and cause pain near the herniated disc. The symptoms of a herniated disc include weakness, ligament pain, tingling, and numbness. Chiropractic treatment will help alleviate this pain by addressing the cause of these symptoms.


Sciatica is a term that involves the pain involving the legs, buttocks, lower back, and hip areas, due to an underlying cause. Sciatica isn’t a medical condition, but rather a group of symptoms related to a medical condition. Sciatica usually occurs when a patient is experiencing disc problems and can be alleviated with chiropractic remedies. If you live in or around Sioux City, contact Multicare Health Clinic for effective chiropractic treatment for your sciatica.

Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves are quite common. Pinched nerves can happen anywhere in the body. Pinched nerves often occur around the spinal cord due to a herniated disc or other disc problems. This is because a slipped disc can easily pinch the nerves, damage them, or apply pressure to the nerve's root. This can cause serious pain that needs to be addressed by a professional chiropractor as soon as possible. The symptoms of a pinched nerve include muscle weakness, numbness, sharp shooting pain in the lower back, radiating pain, and other related issues.
