Symptoms are LIARS

You think you have a slipped disc in your low back.

You’ve checked Google, multiple youtube videos, talked to your friend who knows this well and your parents who have heard millions of these stories. Or maybe you wrote into your myChart to #askadoc and it was suggested (without xrays, CT or MRI).

  1. You don’t have enough info for a diagnosis.
  2. Can a disc slip? Anatomically, NOPE.
  3. But what about these symptoms: low back pain, leg pain, urinary changes, digestive changes, reduced motion and strength, sensory or motor changes. Do I ignore them?

How do you know it’s not these:

  • Degeneration
  • Disc bulge
  • Trauma
  • Stress/transition
  • Lack of movement
  • Major financial stress

Is it any of the above? All of the above? Maybe.
What it is = Subluxation.

What do you do?
See your Chiropractor, GET ADJUSTED.
