End the Pain in Your Spine
Did you know that the vertebrae that make up your spine are separated by special shock-absorbing discs? They allow your back to withstand the pressure created by everyday activities like walking, sitting, and lifting. However, if the pressure becomes too great in these discs, the liquid inside will be pushed to the outer layer, causing a bulging disc – which can be a very painful and serious issue in the long term. Get in touch with Dr. Rozenberg today if you’re suffering from back pain; if the issue is related to your spinal discs, she can help you find a minimally invasive solution for relief with bulging disc treatment in Culver City, Van Nuys & Ontario, CA.
What Causes a Bulging Disc?
When the tough outer portion of a spinal disc is injured (or even simply worn out due to years of use), it decompresses, causing it to bulge out from between the vertebrae. Common causes include aging, poor posture, a generally inactive lifestyle, micro-traumas or injuries that have built up over time, placing a sudden load on the discs, obesity, and genetic factors. At some point, the bulge may grow to the point where the disc becomes herniated.
How Can a Bulging Disc Be Treated?
We’ll always recommend conservative, non-surgical treatment options first when it comes to treating a bulging disc. Spinal decompression is often a good choice; it involves adjusting the spine’s position so that less pressure is placed on the discs, causing them to retract to where they belong. Additionally, you can treat your symptoms at home with stretching exercises and the appropriate application of heat and cold. Dr. Rozenberg can help you explore other options for treatment during your visit.
What Happens If I Don’t Seek Treatment?
A herniated disc occurs when the soft inner core of the disc bulges out through a tear in the tougher outer layer. This can happen due to injury or simply the aging process. If you don’t seek treatment for a herniated disc, the bulge will continue to pressure the nerves around it. This can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area. In some cases, it can also lead to paralysis. That’s why you must not delay treatment for bulging discs.
