HERNIATED DISC THERAPY
Visit Us for Bulging Disc Treatment
Your intervertebral discs are fibrous, gel-filled shock absorbers that cushion your vertebrae, enable your spine to bend and allow nerves to pass from the spinal cord out to the rest of your body. A bulging disc or protruding disc injury can cause excruciating pain. Fortunately, your BackFit Health + Spine chiropractor in Phoenix, Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler, Queen Creek, or Mesa can repair underlying structural problems and provide treatment options for long-term bulging disc treatment and healing.
What is a Protruding Disc or Bulging Disc Injury?
Healthy discs’ edges should sit in line with the vertebrae they cushion. A sudden injury or long-term poor posture habits can misalign the vertebrae, making them compress discs, so their fibrous outer coverings weaken and bulge, making a condition referred to as protruding disc, as the disc moves outside of its normal bounds.
Depending on the extent of the protrusion, a bulging disc may or may not cause pain. But if left untreated, i.e. if you don’t receive bulging disc treatment, it can progress into a painful herniated disc—a situation in which the fibrous disc covering cracks open, allowing some of the inner jelly-like nucleus to slip out and press harder on the nerves. Sciatica, for example, can be one symptom of a bulging or herniated disc in the lower back. Then, herniated disc treatment needs to be applied.
