Annular tear is a tear or rupture in the disc and it can happen anywhere around the disc. An annular tear can be very painful if the tear happens in the outer 1/3 of the disc’s annular ring because it is innervated with pain fibers. An annular tear can have many different symptoms such as:
- pain at the site of the damaged disc
- burning sensation
- numbness in the arms or legs and pain
- weakness or tingling in the arms or legs
How can you find relief from an annular tear?
The best course of action would be to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor in Omaha. Chiropractic care can help treat the annular tear by addressing the cause of the tear instead of just chancing symptoms. The reason why chiropractic care is a good choice to treat annular tears is because with any tears in the disc can cause inflammation, which will cause nerve inference. With nerve interference from the tear can cause pain at the site of the damaged disc, burning sensation, numbness in the arms or legs, and pain, weakness or tingling in the arms or legs. A chiropractic adjustment will relieve the nerve inference and allow the body to perform at its highest potential, which will help the annular tear to heal and help relieve any discomfort from the body.
