The discs between your vertebrae are like jelly doughnuts; an outer fibrous material filled with a jelly-like substance.  If the disc is damaged the “jelly” can leak out and press on your nerves.  When this happens, it may cause severe pain, numbness, muscle weakness and more.  The best way to prevent this is to strengthen your back and abdominal muscles.  The staff at Marcum Chiropractic Clinic can show you many excellent ways to do this.  Call 503-235-7130 to schedule an appointment.
