Lumbar disc disease is a degenerative process. It is an abnormal wear and tear on the spinal segments. The chiropractic adjustment can help someone suffering from lumbar disc disease because it realigns the spine. To put it simply, it is adding stability to the segment that is restoring normal motion again.
When abnormal wear and tear goes on for a long period of time, the disc cannot hydrate itself and enters into a process called imbibition. When this happens, the discs start to degenerate on their own. When you restore the normal bio-mechanics, you can restore imbibition. The pump mechanism will restore the hydration of the joint, which will then decrease it or in some instances reverse it.
