Clients looking for a Brampton Chiropractor need to be sure they have a thorough expert working with them that can help with a variety of different issues.
The joints located on the back part of the spine that help align the vertebrae are called facet joints. A degenerated or injured disc accompanied by pain, swelling and stiffness can result in the condition known as facet syndrome. While rest generally helps to relieve the pain associated with this condition, motion can increase the pain.
A herniated disc or a bulging disc occurs when part of the gel-like disc centre pushes through its outer layers. This condition can exert pressure on neighbouring systems producing a chemical reaction that results in inflammation and pain. These types of changes often aggravate the nerves, causing pain and symptoms of tingling and numbness in the feet, legs or back area.
