Chiropractic care involves the re-alignment of your joints, muscles, and bones. Your body can get out of alignment just from doing daily activities. With time, your spine can compress, which can give you lower back pain. Pain from sitting in a single position all day can cause issues to your upper back and neck, and being on your feet or walking can lead to issues with your hips getting out of alignment.
If you have a herniated disc, your back pain may be caused when the bulging disc presses against a nerve in your spine. It might be possible to get some relief by positioning yourself a certain way on pillows, but spinal decompression therapy could be a better option if your chiropractor agrees.
You'll need an evaluation of your condition first, and if spinal decompression therapy is right for your herniated disc, you might need to undergo a series of treatments.
