Treatments Aimed To Help You
One common cause of low back pain is a disc problem. Some bulging is common or regular in your spine, but often a disc is damaged and bulges too much. This usually happens when there is some trauma to the disc.
Back pain can be very painful if an internal injury causes your disc to bulge against your spinal cord or a nerve. If you are experiencing leg pain, weakness and or numbness or tingling, then you most likely have a disc bulging against a nerve root in the lower spine. Although these are very painful, surgery is not always necessary to find relief.
At South Florida Disc and Spine, we have many options to treat your back pain from the root cause of the problem. Rather than just treating your symptoms, we go beyond to work directly with the cause by performing the most appropriate diagnostic tests and procedures to accurately find the solution for your back pain.
There are many types and causes of back pain which we can address with our methods:
- Annular Tear
- Bulging Disc
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Disc Extrusion
- Disc Protrusion
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Stenosis
Back pain can be life-changing. But the good news is that you have options for treatment, not just chiropractic care, physical therapy, medications or injections.
When all of these options don’t work, you may be told that surgery is your only option. However, Dr. Louis Miller of South Florida Disc and Spine focuses on providing more holistic, alternative solutions. We aim to provide solutions for chronic back pain that do not involve possibly dangerous injections, medications, or surgeries.

Depending on your evaluation, Dr. Miller may recommend specific treatments, such as:
