Understanding Herniated Discs

Herniated discs, often referred to as slipped or ruptured discs, occur when the soft, gel-like center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tough outer layer. This can lead to intense pain, numbness, and tingling sensations, affecting your daily life.

What Causes Herniated Discs?

Herniated discs can result from various factors, including:

  • Aging: As we age, our spinal discs naturally degenerate, making them more susceptible to herniation.
  • Injury: Trauma or injury to the spine can cause disc herniation.
  • Poor Posture: Maintaining improper posture over time can increase the risk of herniated discs.

Symptoms of Herniated Discs

Common symptoms of herniated discs include:

  • Sharp Back Pain: Often radiating down the leg (sciatica).
  • Numbness or Weakness: In the affected area.
  • Tingling Sensations: In the extremities.
  • Muscle Spasms: Resulting from nerve irritation.

Our Patient Reviews


Linda Kreitel

“We were hit so hard that my seat back broke! When I came to Lake Stevens Chiropractic Clinic I was in severe pain throughout my spine. After going through chiropractic care I am now feeling much better. The doctors and staff are excellent!”


Shirley S., Darrington, WA
Dr. Hansen saved my life in a way. I was living in misery unable to do much due to extreme back pain. I had been to other Chiropractors and they helped some but I was still in pain. My husband started to go to Dr. Hansen first and I couldn’t believe the difference in him He had been in the hospital he was so bad. One treatment and he was able to go back to work so we both started going to him. We have been going to him for about 48 years and he keeps us both up and running! I have referred many people to him and he has helped them all. I don’t know what we will do when he retires. He is the Greatest!
