Millville Thoracic Disc Herniation and Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain caused by a spinal disc herniation? Yes. It’s real. Some patients with a thoracic disc herniation will have a peculiar abdominal bulge. It is rather rare, but your Millville chiropractor is attentive to  its possibility and relationship to a thoracic disc herniation as its source. Wilson Family Chiropractic understands the intricacy of a thoracic disc herniation surgery and delivers conservative, gentle care to ease pain for many such patients.

ABDOMINAL PAIN WITH THORACIC DISC HERNIATION

Thoracic radiculopathy is extremely rare luckily, but it can cause a lot of pain and interesting symptoms associated with the abdomen. A recent case was presented in the medical literature. The patient was 52 years old who presented with severe right flank pain and abdominal pain. The treating physicians determined she had a T9-10 thoracic disc herniation and proposed an invasive surgery. (1) Another set of physicians describe a patient with unilateral, one-sided abdominal wall bulging and thoracic spine radicular pain due to a lateral disc herniation at T11-12 that recurred with bilateral disc prolapse and motor deficits. This was an even more unusual type of thoracic disc herniation according to the physicians. (2) Surgeons are ready to do surgery for usual and unusual cases of thoracic disc herniation if the patient is ready.

SURGERY FOR THORACIC DISC HERNIATION

Surgery for thoracic disc herniation are complex and quite invasive due to its close proximity to the spine cord. Most thoracic disc herniations occur between T8 and L1. Surgeons explain that they would perform surgery for intractable back or radicular pain, neurological deficits and myelopathy signs (often related to large thoracic disc herniations that occupy greater than 40% of the spinal canal. (3) For patients wanting a conservative option, Millville chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic offers just such an option.
