Have you been told that you have a slipped disc or a disc injury in Boynton Beach? They can vary from slight to severe, but most require the attention of a trained chiropractor. Our Boynton Beach chiropractic clinic can help you understand your condition and help you develop the best treatment option for you.

The little pads that lie between your vertebrae are called the intervertebral discs; each of which has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. Your discs both join and separate your vertebrae. These discs serve as a cushions or shock absorbers, so that the bones don’t make contact with each other as you move. Without discs we would literally be unable to move our upper torso.

Disc injuries are called a variety of different names: slipped disc, ruptured disc, herniated disc, as well as a disc injury. Any of those words likely put fear in your heart to go with the pain in your back.

In most cases, we are referring to intervertebral discs, which are those little pads between your vertebrae. Discs are like cushions or shock absorbers to prevent vertebrae from contacting each other. They have a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. Discs allow you to move, twist, and walk. Every movement becomes painful when discs are injured.

Common Disc Injuries

The three most common disc injuries are a protruding disc, a herniated disc, or a disc extrusion.

  1. Protruding Disc A protruding disc diagnosis means that the gel-like center of the disc is asymmetrically pushed out or bulging out beyond its normal place and shape. This often results in pinching and irritating nerves, which can be very painful.
  2. Herniated Disc A herniated disk is when the disc material ruptures or tears and the gel-like center pushes outward. This causes inflammation of the nerves. In addition to pain, you might feel numbness or tingling due to irritation of the nerves. and can be quite serious.
  3. Disc Extrusion This is the worst and most severe kind of disc injury. Not only does the injured disc become inflamed and protrude beyond the vertebrae, but a piece of the disk also breaks off. Patients experience severe pain, and often, a limited range of motion.



Disc injuries can vary from slight to severe, along with the pain they cause. The attention of a trained professional chiropractor can identify the problem and severity, create a plan, and provide chiropractic treatment for your specific condition to bring you relief.

Dr. Abe was quick in assisting me with my neck and shoulder pain! I had very little movement of my head going into the office but Dr. Abe assured me that I would be taken care of. He not only adjusted me but taught me ways to alleviate my pain through at-home stretching and better sleeping positions. Three days later and my pain is gone! Thank you Dr. Abe and thank you MDR!! I will be back!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Abe. This was the first time I felt absolute comfort at a chiropractor and will 100% be back. I felt comfortable and felt that Dr. Abe was treating me like a member of his family. I really appreciate Dr. Abe and MDR Advanced Medical Associates. Dr. Abe thoroughly explained to me my options and helped me set follow up appointments the fit into my daily packed schedule. Thank you !

I've been coming here for over a year now and the service is exceptional, Dr Abe has been a huge help in my recovery and also always have a great conversation with him. If you're not coming here you're going to the wrong place.

I decided to visit this group after a pinched nerve/muscle spasms in my neck/arm were not getting better. Great location, good hours, if you are in pain, they do anything they can to try & see you and not make you wait a week.Dr Mark & Dr Abe went thru my x-rays and came up with a game plan & discussed with me.I mainly see Abe for manipulations, he is very skilled at what he does. I'm glad I took the chiropractic route. Had me up & running pretty fast. Amazing that I felt that good without medicines.Jessica & Deasy are fun to deal with. Nice, friendly, & they keep things moving! It all starts and ends at the front desk.Chris. What can I say. I guess it isn't really isn't his fault that he gets to inflict pain on me from time to time, but, he is also great to work with 🤣🤣. He gets to demonstrate the "at home" things to do, never the fun part but when done regularly, they may help you from coming back as much.Worth checking out. They are all good people.❤
