What is an Injured Disc?

Dr. Paul Calladine

Disc injury - it's a real pain in the back!


A normal disc appears similar to a ‘1cm slice of onion with a jelly bean in the centre, glued to a bone on either side’. Once it is injured/damaged it swells up and is very difficult to heal because it is deep inside your body.


Since your body is so complex the best results I have achieved come from taking care of the whole person.

Why and How do Discs get Injured?

I was recently asked this question by a patient in clinic. A disc is injured when it is under extra pressure and basically tears. What happens is very similar to tearing a piece of paper. This is where you have torn one or more of the onion layers.


This is generally set up when the joints above or below it are not moving properly.


In my personal experience, especially when considering your lower back, for the majority of the time, the rear pelvic joints (rear axial joints) are involved. A common contributing factor may include a stiff middle back.


To me, the event (may be large or oddly small) which is commonly obvious causes the acute symptom is the ‘last straw’ effect. This extra pressure in my opinion has been building up possibly for months or years and suddenly you may find that ‘today’s the day’ that your disc tears.


Do you know what the difference is between a herniated and a bulging disc?

"I hope that you don't suffer from a disc injury, however if you do, I'll do my best to help"

How do I Recover From a Disc Injury?

It is actually quite simple but as you know, when you experience a disc injury it is often extremely debilitating. The recovery has many pathways. The most common is the chance that people feel better after about six weeks whether or not they seek help.


For those untreated cases of disc injury, the injury may come back, worse than before. This has a real chance of becoming a recurring problem forever, because the individual hasn’t dealt with the fundamental problem.


My full body approach is comprehensive and appears to be extremely effective in solving underlying subluxation patterns. Since everybody is different the chiropractic adjustments and recommendations are specific for each person.

    Hello Dr. Calladine,

    I came across your informative article on disc injuries and your holistic approach to recovery, and I must say, your expertise and dedication to addressing the complexities of disc injuries is truly commendable. Your analogy of a normal disc as a ""slice of onion with a jelly bean in the center"" and your insights into how discs get injured by being under extra pressure, leading to tearing, provide valuable clarity to readers seeking to understand these issues. Your emphasis on the importance of a comprehensive, full body approach for recovery aligns perfectly with our platform's mission of providing actionable insights for holistic well-being. I believe that collaborating to share your expertise on disc injuries and recovery could greatly benefit our audience, and I'm excited about the prospect of working together to provide valuable information to a wider audience.

    Best regards,
    Chiropractor North Lakes
