Hello, everyone! This is Dr. Bob Salamon with Lowcountry Chiropractic. As always, I hope you’re doing well and staying healthy! Welcome back to my blog, where I discuss anything and everything related to chiropractic care and healthy living! I aim to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your health. In my last post, we discussed the importance of staying active, as well as some workout tips. Today, we’ll be talking about intervertebral discs: What they are, how they work, and how you can keep them in the best possible condition. Intervertebral discs are located in the spine, which is the body’s central support system. It is important to understand their function so that you can care for them as well as understand the source of your pain if you are having disc problems. If you are interested in learning more about intervertebral discs, I encourage you to stick around and keep reading! Let’s get started.
In a previous blog, we took a closer look at the spine and the parts that make up the spine. For a brief recap, the spine consists of vertebrae, facet joints, intervertebral discs, the spinal cord and nerves, and soft tissues. Intervertebral discs are flat and round cushion-like structures that sit between the vertebrae and act as shock absorbers for the spine. They are about an inch in diameter and one-quarter inch thick, and are held in place by ligaments connecting the spinal bones. There are 26 bones that make up the vertebral column, and these discs sit in between each one. Their cushion-like function is due to the discs being filled with a gelatinous substance known as nucleus pulposus. Nucleus pulposus consists of mostly water, as well as collagen fibers. Surrounding this gel-like substance is the annulus fibrosus, a tough exterior composed of layers of collagen and proteins that acts as a protective layer for the nucleus pulposus, helping keep it intact when pressure is applied to the spine. Intervertebral discs allow the vertebral column to be flexible and protect it from damage from everyday activities, such as running, walking, bending, and jumping.
Intervertebral discs are not vascular, meaning they do not consist of blood vessels or have a blood supply. They depend on the end plates of the spine for nutrients. End plates are located at the ends of each disc, separating the vertebral bone from the disc itself. Glucose, oxygen, and other nutrients reach the inside of the discs through the process of diffusion.
Although these discs are known as “shock absorbers”, they are actually not as flexible as you might think. There is actually little, if any, room for discs to slip or move. Additionally, the fluid-filled sacs begin to solidify as we age. As this happens, the discs become less elastic, making them more prone to injury. The discs become dehydrated and the cartilage surrounding them stiffens. This is part of the normal aging process. If you have an issue with an intervertebral disc, there’s a good chance that you will know– It is often quite painful. Some common disc problems include herniated discs and bulged discs. Both of these issues are often caused by gradual, aging-related wear and tear, known as disc degeneration.
Since intervertebral discs play an important role in keeping the spine protected, it is important that we do our best to keep them in the best possible condition. Although we cannot prevent normal wear and tear due to aging, there are some other steps we can take. Let’s take a look!
Improve your posture.
A good way to care for your intervertebral discs and your spine as a whole is by improving your posture. This can be done in a few different ways. Generally, there are two different kinds of posture: Dynamic and static posture. Dynamic posture refers to your posture while you are moving, such as walking, running, or bending down. Static posture refers to your posture while you are not moving, such as sitting, standing, or sleeping. The key to both dynamic and static posture is the position of your spine. Correct posture should maintain the spine’s natural curves, without increasing them. Be mindful of your posture during everyday activities. When standing, stand up straight and tall and put your shoulders back. Pull your stomach in and keep your head level, with your arms hanging naturally at your sides. When sitting, keep your feet on the floor, rather than crossing your legs. Relax your shoulders and make sure that your back is fully supported. If you are sitting for a long period of time, be sure to stretch and change positions frequently.
Lift heavy objects correctly.
There is a proper way to lift heavy objects. This is sometimes referred to as “good body mechanics”. Lifting heavy objects is one of the most common ways that people end up with back injuries. When lifting something off of the floor, do not lift from a standing position with your knees locked or waist bent. Instead, stand close to the object, kneel with one knee resting on the floor, and use your legs to lift yourself and the object up. Instead of kneeling, you may also choose to squat. Let your legs do the work, and avoid twisting your body. Slowly straighten your hips and knees– Not your back. Keep your shoulders in line with your hips as you move.
Get the right mattress.
It may be surprising, but the mattress you sleep on can have a huge impact on your spinal health! Generally, a fairly firm and supportive mattress is best. This will support the body’s weight and allow your muscles to decompress and relax. However, if a mattress is too firm, or too soft, it won’t support your spine correctly. Additionally, the posture in which you sleep can play a huge role in the overall health of your back and spine. Sleep posture refers to the position your body is in during or prior to sleep. Some of the best sleep postures are sleeping flat on your back, sleeping on your side, or sleeping in the fetal position. For more information about sleep and chiropractic care, check out one of my previous blogs!
Maintain a healthy weight.
We have all heard the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, but did you know that it’s also beneficial to your spine? Excess weight can alter the natural curvature of your spine, and it especially affects your pelvis, back, and knees. Extra weight means extra stress on your spine and joints. Additionally, extra weight can press on intervertebral discs, causing them to become herniated or causing pressure on nerves. Dropping only a few pounds can make a big difference and help reduce back pain, or prevent it. Maintaining a healthy weight means making changes to your diet, participating in regular physical exercise, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress. Incorporating healthy foods into your diet, meal planning, and being mindful of calories are all good ways to get on track to maintaining a healthy weight.
As you can see, intervertebral discs play a big role in our everyday activities, and taking care of them as best as we can is key to preventing back issues down the road. If you have any further questions or concerns, I encourage you to reach out to us. As a chiropractor, I can also provide you with nutritional advice and other recommendations for lifestyle changes that can help you keep your spine functioning at its best.

Hello, everyone! This is Dr. Bob Salamon with Lowcountry Chiropractic. As always, I hope you’re doing well and staying healthy! In my last blog, we talked about the different types of diagnostic imaging used by chiropractors. Today, we’ll be discussing why you should see a chiropractor. If you’re someone who has heard about chiropractic care but hasn’t made an appointment for yourself, this article is for you. There is a common misconception that you only need to see a chiropractor if you are injured or in pain. However, this is not the case. In fact, seeing a chiropractor regularly can help prevent injury and pain– But we’ll get to that later. If you are interested in learning more about chiropractic care and why you should visit a chiropractor, you’re in the right place. Let’s get started!
What is chiropractic care?
First of all, let’s take a closer look at what chiropractic care actually is. Chiropractic is a form of natural medicine that emphasizes the body’s amazing ability to heal itself. Sometimes, interferences known as subluxations can disturb and prevent this healing process. The term subluxation refers to a partial dislocation or slight misalignment of the vertebrae which can block signals within the spinal nerves. Since the nervous system coordinates all healing and function, misaligned vertebrae can irritate spinal nerves and interrupt communication between the brain and body. Subluxations can occur due to an injury or can happen spontaneously, and they can cause a variety of issues and illnesses. (Check out my previous blog to learn more about subluxations!) A chiropractor uses treatments called spinal adjustments to remove these interferences and help the body function optimally. Chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free treatment for a variety of conditions.
Why should you see a chiropractor?
There are a variety of reasons why people visit chiropractors– And it’s for more than just back pain. Seeing a chiropractor can provide a wide range of benefits and can help you live a healthy, pain-free life. Here are a few of the reasons why you should see a chiropractor.
1. You have joint or muscle pain.
When experiencing joint or muscle pain, most peoples’ first reaction is to grab an over-the-counter pain killer, like Tylenol. However, this only masks the pain– It does not address the cause of the pain. The pain could be due to problems with your musculoskeletal system or alignment. A chiropractor can use diagnostic imaging to help determine the cause of pain, and then come up with a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
2. You have chronic back pain.
Back pain is considered to be chronic if it lasts for three months or longer. Again, over-the-counter pain medications can only put a “bandaid” over the real issue. This is one of the most common reasons why people see a chiropractor. Back pain can be caused by a variety of things, ranging from something as simple as sleeping in the wrong position or having poor posture, to something more serious like degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or scoliosis. A chiropractor will use diagnostic imaging and look at your medical history to determine the cause of your pain, before coming up with a long-term treatment plan. Chiropractors can also give you advice and tips for lifestyle changes that may alleviate or prevent back pain in the future.
3. You have headaches.
Approximately 45 million Americans complain of headaches each year. Many of them will also reach for their medicine cabinet, despite the fact that chiropractic care can offer a real solution. Headaches can range from annoying, mild aches to severe migraines. There are a few different types of headaches, including tension, cluster, and migraine. If headaches are interrupting your daily life, visiting a chiropractor may be beneficial. A chiropractor can determine the types of headaches you are experiencing and the cause. There are many causes of headaches, such as lack of sleep, certain foods, poor posture, and even subluxations. Spinal or neck manipulation can help relieve headaches, and your chiropractor can give you nutritional advice that may be helpful.
4. You’re an athlete or an active person.
If you play sports or spend a lot of time working out or being active, your body is subjected to repetitive strain. A chiropractor can treat sports-related injuries and help you recover quickly from them, as well as discuss techniques that can help prevent injury. In fact, athletes and those who are very active should regularly see a chiropractor before an injury occurs– This can help keep your vertebrae aligned and keep your body functioning at its optimal best so that you can continue being active.
5. You have digestive problems.
Did you know that chiropractors can help with digestive issues, too? The nervous system controls the digestive system by sending signals to the brain and organs. Since your brain and spinal cord help make up the nervous system, your nervous system has a direct link to the digestive system and to your spine. When vertebrae are misaligned, they can put pressure on nerves or block signals from the brain to the digestive system. This can cause digestive problems, such as heartburn, bloating, and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments can remove these subluxations to allow the digestive system to work properly.
6. You are pregnant.
If you are pregnant, chiropractic care may be beneficial. When a woman is pregnant, her body undergoes many physical and hormonal changes in a short period of time. Pregnancy can shift your posture, causing discomfort. As a result, many pregnant women experience aches and pains in the lower back and hips. A chiropractor can use different techniques and adjusting tables to provide treatment that does not put pressure on the stomach. Chiropractic care is safe and effective during pregnancy and can help manage pain as well as establish pelvic balance. Additionally, chiropractic care can lead to a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery!
7. You have recently been in an auto accident.
Many people suffer from neck or back injuries and pain after an auto accident. Even if you initially feel fine after a collision, it’s a good idea to visit a chiropractor to check for any misalignments that may cause pain later. Individuals who have been injured in a car accident often experience intense muscle pain and stiffness, and these conditions can worsen over time, leading to serious issues if left untreated. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries after an auto accident. It is a neck injury that can cause pain, loss of range of motion in the neck, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and tingling or numbness in the arms. Some people may also experience blurred vision. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, a chiropractor can treat it.
8. You want to live a healthier lifestyle.
If you are interested in a healthier lifestyle, chiropractic care can be a great first step. Your spine is an incredibly important part of your body and is essential to your health. In the same way that we regularly visit dentists to take care of our teeth, we should be doing the same for our spines. In addition to routine adjustments, a chiropractor can provide you with helpful information about exercise routines, stretches, and nutritional advice.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should see a chiropractor. Visiting a chiropractor is the first step towards getting healthier, so set up a consultation today!

Hello, everyone! This is Dr. Bob Salamon with Lowcountry Chiropractic. As always, I hope you’re doing well and staying healthy! In my last post, we discussed ways to care for your back and stay healthy at home. Today, we’ll be talking about some of the benefits of chiropractic care. Seeking out chiropractic care is the first step to living a healthy, happy, and pain-free life. The body has the incredible ability to heal itself, and chiropractic care can remove subluxations, or interferences, that prevent this healing process. There are a number of reasons why chiropractic care is beneficial for the body and mind. If you are interested in learning more, you’re in the right place. Let’s get started!
Data has shown that approximately 70 million adults in the United States deal with some type of chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks. Additionally, approximately 16 million adults experience chronic back pain– That’s 8% of all adults. In fact, back pain is one of the top reasons that people miss work or school and are unable to participate in everyday activities. With that being said, it is no surprise that many people are interested in finding ways to manage their chronic pain. While many turn to medications, this doesn’t always do the job. The use of medication for pain puts a temporary band-aid over the problem, rather than identifying and dealing with the root cause. People who have tried medication and saw no results are often interested in finding alternative ways to manage their pain. Chiropractic care is one of those alternative options, especially when dealing with back or neck pain.
Chiropractic is a licensed health care profession that is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders within the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes your bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. The main area that chiropractic care focuses on is the spine. Chiropractors are trained to make sure that your body is functioning at its optimal best, and this is done using spinal adjustments to remove subluxations. Subluxations are partial dislocations or slight misalignments of the vertebrae that block signals from your brain to your body. By correcting a subluxation, your body can restore itself to better health. (If you want to learn more about subluxations, check out one of my previous blogs!) Spinal adjustments can realign the joints and lead to pain relief, including pain from conditions affecting any part of the musculoskeletal system. While the overarching benefit of chiropractic care is that you can live a healthier, pain-free life, there are plenty of other benefits. Let’s break some of them down.
Improved Immune System Function
Did you know that chiropractic care can improve your immune system? Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, organs, and substances that helps the body fight infections and other diseases. While the body has the natural ability to heal itself, there can be an interference with this process if the immune system is not functioning properly. Interferences can include autoimmune disorders and subluxations. The immune system and the nervous system are in constant communication. The nervous system is essentially your body’s command center– not only does it control your movements, but it also controls other body systems and processes, including digestion, healing, aging, and more. The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system, where your brain uses nerves to send signals or messages to the rest of the body. But what happens if one of these nerves is blocked, or a vertebra is misaligned, putting pressure on the nerves? This type of interference, or subluxation, can interrupt your nervous system and immune system, thus interfering with the body’s natural processes. By removing subluxations and realigning joints, function can be restored to the nerves and allow your cells to function the way they are supposed to.
Posture is defined as the way you hold your body. There are two types of posture: Dynamic and static posture. Dynamic posture refers to how you hold yourself while you are moving, such as walking or running. Static posture refers to how you hold yourself when you are not moving, such as sitting or standing. Good posture is an important part of your long-term health, and the key to good posture is the position of your spine. Your spine has three natural curves: At your neck, mid back, and lower back. Correct posture should maintain these curves. Poor posture, such as slumping, can misalign your musculoskeletal system, cause neck and back pain, wear away at your spine, decrease your flexibility, and more. Ideally, your head should be aligned over your shoulders and your shoulders should be back, with your stomach pulled in. While practicing can help improve your posture over time, chiropractic care can also help correct poor posture. Slouching forward can stress the spine, resulting in pain. By realigning the spine and vertebrae, pain can be relieved. Additionally, a chiropractor can make adjustments and slow joint movements that help increase movement within the joint. This will ease you into good posture without any pain.
There are approximately 45 million Americans complaining of headaches each year. It is the most common form of pain and can range from sharp to dull pain. Sometimes, headaches are accompanied by other symptoms like nausea or dizziness. There are over 150 different types of headaches, with the most common types of headaches being tension, migraine, and cluster headaches. Many people turn to over-the-counter medication, like Tylenol, to relieve pain from headaches, but this does not address the cause of the headache itself. Headaches can be caused by many things, but some of the most prominent causes are stress and back or neck strain. Chiropractic care is an effective treatment option for headaches. Chiropractors can help determine the cause of your headache, and come up with a treatment plan to help relieve your headaches. A 2016 study found that 6 to 8 sessions of cervical and upper thoracic spinal adjustments were more effective than exercise for relieving pain. Chiropractic care can improve both acute and chronic neck pain, which, in turn, can reduce the number of headaches you experience. A chiropractor can also recommend lifestyle changes that can help reduce headaches.
The nervous system controls the digestive system by sending signals to the brain and organs. The digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. It is responsible for the breakdown of food into small pieces until they can be absorbed by the body– this process is known as digestion. As mentioned before, your brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system. This means that your digestive system has a direct link to your nervous system, and to your spine. When vertebrae become misaligned, they can put pressure on nerves or block signals being sent from the brain to the digestive system.. This can cause issues with digestion, such as bloating, discomfort, and heartburn. Chiropractic adjustments can remove these interferences and help your digestive system function properly. Additionally, chiropractic care has been shown to reduce inflammation within the body, which can promote healing and healthy digestion. Studies have also shown that chiropractic care can help reduce flare-ups from conditions such as Crohn’s disease and manage symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
These are just a few of the many benefits of chiropractic care. Seeking chiropractic care is the first step on your journey to a healthy and pain-free life.

Today, we’re discussing how chiropractic care can be used as a preemptive measure to lessen the need for surgery. Chiropractic care can be used, in specific instances, to help the body heal and alter the trajectory of an existing ailment, thus precluding the need for surgery. However, there are ailments which can only be rectified through surgery and therefore, regardless of the information shared here today, you should consult with your doctor about the full range of treatment options available to you. That said, no one wants to undergo surgery, for a multitude of reasons. Surgery often entails taking time off from work or school. First, to undergo the procedure. Then, to recover. Invasive procedures are often painful and require patients to consume medication to cope with discomfort and lessen the risk of infection. Even skillfully performed surgeries are likely to leave some kind of scar. For some, the cost associated with surgery is enough to ward them off seeking treatment for their ailment, which only leads to their worsened condition. In this regard, at least, chiropractic care presents an opportunity for individuals to not only manage their existing pain, but also work towards a pain-free future, without surgery.
It’s also important to note: Any reputable chiropractor can assess whether an injury or condition is truly treatable through chiropractic care and will refer you to a specialist or surgeon when necessary. This is merely an aspect of the duty of care between a chiropractor and their patient. While the goal is to reach a patient’s physical goals in the most minimally-invasive manner, when a surgical procedure is the only means of progressing, a chiropractor should do their best to work in tandem with the surgical team to ensure their patient receives the best care during and after their procedure.
Now, to understand why chiropractic care might be presented as an alternative, we must first understand how surgery could be considered the first option to treat musculoskeletal issues. Truthfully, many patients respond to joint or back pain by visiting their primary care doctor. Depending on the doctor, they may refer the patient to a chiropractor or an orthopedic surgeon. If the latter, then we have a clear explanation for why surgery would be the go-to option. Orthopedic surgeons, like chiropractors, seek to treat musculoskeletal issues. However, their mode of practice relies on invasive techniques.
For example, if a patient is suffering from a frozen shoulder, an orthopedic surgeon might recommend rotator cuff surgery. This surgical procedure involves shaving off any bone spurs which might be pinching the nerves in the shoulder and reattaching any tendons or ligaments which have torn. Rotator cuff surgery might be preceded by rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, stretching exercises, or steroid injections. Rotator cuff surgeries are often followed by several months of recovery and rehabilitation. As well, the surgery is associated with a risk of developing complications such as excessive bleeding, infection, and blood clots within the legs and lungs. Finally, even after the surgery, this is a chance the patient will not recover full range of motion in their shoulder joint and will continue to struggle with weakness or pain.
On the other hand, in the same instance of a patient presenting with a frozen shoulder, a chiropractor’s response would be completely different. Chiropractic care is based on manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissues and a handful of other noninvasive techniques. Therefore, a plan would be developed spanning a range from one to six months. During this time, the patient would receive chiropractic adjustments to relieve any subluxations within the spine or neck (which may be contributing to an irritated nerve connected to the shoulder). Similarly, the patient would receive regular massages, with a therapist skilled at expressed deep tissue lesions. The patient might be given a daily physical therapy regimen to follow at home, which serves to help rehabilitate the muscles within the shoulder slowly, over time. Some chiropractors offer laser therapies, electronic stimulation, dry needling, and more. All of these elements combine to give the patient’s body its best chance at healing itself. While surgeries often purport to be cure-all, chiropractic care never claims to cure anything. Rather, chiropractic care is always offered as a means by which the body can be cajoled and stimulated into healing itself.
A study published in Spine journal in 2013 revealed an interesting correlation between the first medical provider a patient visits and their resulting medical care. During this study, construction workers in Washington State who’d filed disability claims for back injuries were the object of fascination. According to the results of the study, 42.7% or nearly half of the workers who visited a surgeon first ended up undergoing surgery to resolve their back injury. Meanwhile, only 1.5% of the workers who saw a chiropractor first ended up undergoing surgery. We might infer from such a significant gap in percentages that many of those surgeries were conducted out of convenience rather than necessity. Likewise, we might also infer, it’s beneficial for those seeking to avoid surgery to see a chiropractor before a surgeon. In regards specifically to back pain, chiropractic care can yield a “significant reduction or elimination” of pain.
Chiropractic care can be used to treat sports injuries, shoulder pain, hip pain, whiplash, headaches, vertigo, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, disc injuries, and much more. Instead of using the type of injury to determine whether surgery or chiropractic care is better, you’d be better served by evaluating your unique needs. How long are you willing to dedicate to the healing process? What risks are associated with the recommended surgery? In comparison, what risks are associated with attempting to treat your injury with chiropractic care first? Are there any financial limitations weighing on your decision? What are your values as an individual? You must take each of these factors into consideration when choosing between surgery and chiropractic care.
In recent years, we’ve seen the true cost of the opioid epidemic. A meta-analysis and systematic review conducted in 2019 revealed patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain conditions were “49% less likely to receive an opioid prescription than their counterparts who went to other healthcare providers.” The numbers don’t lie—that’s nearly half of the patients who sought chiropractic care. After surgery, intense pain medications present a challenge for those who are predisposed to addiction. As well, surgical complications which lead to prolonged discomfort can result in an unintended dependency upon these prescription drugs. If you’re a recovering addict or have a history of substance abuse in your family, chiropractic care offers a way around the medications necessary for highly-invasive surgeries.
At the end of the day, as a chiropractor, my one and only concern is the health and wellness of my patients. It’s possible to use a combination of chiropractic care and surgery to achieve optimal results. One aspect of my job is assessing what’s best for my patients and working with my patients to tailor a treatment plan which helps them live pain-free. Of course, I hope you’ll consider chiropractic care as an alternative or preemptive measure to surgery. And, if you do, I hope you’ll reach out to us here at Lowcountry Chiropractic. Give us a call or shoot us an email and we’ll respond as soon as we’re able. Remember: I’m Dr. Bob and I have your back covered! Until next time, thank you for reading!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
