New Explanation For "Mysterious" Pains
The vertebrae in your body are separated by fibrous discs called intervertebral discs. When you injure your back or neck, many times there is also a specific injury to the intervertebral disc. The disc can bulge, herniate or be torn. Chiropractors are experts in spinal anatomy and are familiar with the latest research published on why the discs hurt so much.
In a recent article published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the British edition, titled, "The Nerve Supply of the Lumbar Intervertebral Disc," the author talks about how disc pain can be found in areas other than your neck or lower back. This can lead to pain in entire regions of the body and/or pain that feels like it is coming from the inside.
