Have You been Told You Have a Disc Bulge?
What is Disc Bulge?
Bulging discs are an extremely common spinal injury, with many thousands of people suffering from the condition every year. In many instances, a person with a bulging disc may not even know there is anything wrong until the condition imposes on a nerve root in the spinal column. Depending on the location of the problem, a bulging disc can cause excruciating pain, loss of range of motion, and can have other adverse effects on the body.
A bulging disc results when age, injury, or disease causes part of the disc to protrude past the edge of the vertebrae; for example, when a hamburger is too large for its bun and protrudes over. When the bulging disc presses on a nerve or other structure it begins to cause pain. Chiropractic treatment is a popular way to treat bulging disc without the use of medicine or drugs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gallentine will have a full examination. After review, he will then be able to diagnosis from findings and begin a treatment plan.
