Disc derangement is a painful condition probably caused due to the escape of nuclear material of the disc into the tears developed in the disc, eventually irritating the nerve endings. It causes symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling sensation, and weakness of the limbs. Commonly disc derangements occur in the neck and lower back region. Chiropractic manipulation, physiotherapy, and trigger point dry needling are certain techniques to get rid of symptoms due to disc derangement.
