Bulging Disc Treatment

Bulging discs (which are also sometimes called slipped discs, protrusions or protruding discs) are not as severe as herniated discs. Your vertebrae (and the nerves that pass between them from your spinal cord to the rest of your body) are cushioned by intervertebral discs. They have a tough outer layer and are filled with a shock-absorbing, jelly-like material. A disc may bulge beyond its normal boundaries for several reasons; if it bulges too far, it may pinch nerves, or even the spinal cord. This can cause radiating pain through the back, neck and into the arms or legs, depending on the location of the bulging disc. Bulging discs respond well to chiropractic treatment with our Placentia chiropractor Dr. Julie Stewart and her team.
