Herniated Disc Treatment and Relief
Disc problems are among the most common causes of back pain. The spinal discs are the spongy cushions located between each vertebrae to help buffer and protect the spine as you move throughout the day. When they become compromised, a host of spinal issues and back problems can result, including significant pain.
What is a Herniated Disc?
A herniated disc refers to a disc that has become ruptured due to injury or overuse. However, there can be various phases of disc dysfunction, including a bulging disc, which indicates the disc has been affected but has not yet become herniated. Once a disc has become compromised, the soft inner tissue of this cushion between each vertebrae begins to protrude outward. It can then make contact with the nerves of the spinal cord. This can in some cases cause tremendous pain and discomfort.
