Bulging Discs

What is a Bulging Disc?

A bulging disc, sometimes referred to as a disc bulge, occurs when two forces act together in your body: erosion and pressure. If enough pressure is placed on an aging spinal disc, it may bulge (think of your bicycle when you were younger, and how the tube could bulge through the tire if the sides of the tire were worn) and place pressure on surrounding nerves and structures.

Treatment for a bulging disc typically depends on the location and severity of your condition. Discectomies or fusion procedures may be necessary to relieve the affected nerves and discs.
