Helping You Understand the Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments to Help Relieve You of Pain
What is a Herniated (Bulging) Disc?
A herniated disc means that there is a problem with one of the discs (a rubbery cushion) between the vertebrae (individual spinal bones). Spinal discs have a soft center that is surrounded by a tough exterior and when the soft center gets pushed out through a tear in the exterior, it is known as a herniated disc or a ruptured disc. Bulging disc is another term used to refer to a herniated disc.
Many people associate herniated/bulging discs with a need for surgery. The threat of surgery can be scary, as the cost is very high and recovery can be quite painful. Cornerstone Chiropractic offers a highly specialized, state-of-the-art option to potentially avoid surgery- Spinal Decompression Therapy.
