Lets face it, most of us sit far too much. And when we sit for long periods, our vertebral column compresses. So yes, at the end of the day, we are in fact shorter than at the start of the day.
The space in between our vertebra, contain an invertebral disc that acts like a shock absorber. These discs allow us to move our spine in various directions. Good news, right? Well, yes and no. If we don’t look after them, we can often succumb to painful disc bulges or worse disc herniations. And then, many disc injuries are often associated with numbness or pain down the leg. The pattern of numbness and/or pain, depends on the level of injury. Disc problems can be nasty and very debilitating if not treated appropriately, but with a pro-active philosophy, it is something we can help you manage, safely and quickly.
