The discs between your vertebrae can be injured in various ways. The discs in your low back and neck are more likely to be injured than the ones in your mid-back, mostly because your ribcage acts as an extra support system for your mid-back spine.
Sometimes injured discs will put pressure on the nerves that run down your arms and legs causing pain, tingling and sometimes weakness in your extremities. Other conditions and injuries can mimic these symptoms so be sure to see an expert so you can get the proper care.
Marcum Chiropractic’s Dr. Todd Hartwig has treated many patients with disc problems. Schedule an appointment with him if you’re having back issues.
