What’s a bulging disc
A bulging disc is often referred to as a slipped disc, in essence, the disc is like a spacer between the bones of your spine. The space it is creating is for a nerve to pop out from the spinal cord and then go to a different part of your body.
When the disc ‘slips’ it means that the soft inner core (like the inside of a doughnut) is being squished out. sometimes this presses onto a nerve and then you can feel pain or different sensations in places away from your spine.
Most disc issues come in the lower back, but some in the neck.
Either way, we have developed assessment and treatment techniques that helps reduce the pressure and can help remodel the scar tissue that is formed as a result of the damage.
If you or anyone you know has a slipped disc then it is important that it gets checked sooner, rather than later.
The first step we take is t do a through assessment to make sure that we can help you, and if we are pretty certain we can then we map out a plan of action for yu to make sure that we can get you as good as you can as quickly as possible.
When I first came to this Clinic l was in so much pain l couldn't straight on my back, was on a cocktail of pain killers, l thought this was what my life was going to be like. l saw John who said he could help me and weeks down the road l am able to stand up straight walk without any pain and the plus side l have managed to reduce my painkillers by more than half, and l am so happy. John is a really lovely man, he is very honest with you, l couldn't recommend him enough. The staff are all very nice and helpful.Ann WatsonRet.
I first went to shield clinic with a frozen shoulder and lower back pain. The frozen shoulder stopped me swimming, doing yoga and also normal activities like decorating. At 53 I had started to accept that nothing could be done, but after 2 visits to John my shoulder freed up and after 12 sessions my shoulder was back to normal with total movement and no pain, and my lower back pain was gone. I now visit once a month or so but I’ve got my old life back. I can’t thank John enough!Clare Stephensonproperty developer
