“Ever heard of bulging discs..?”
It is most commonly known as a contained disc disorder; the tough outer late of cartilage between the vertebrae hasn’t completely opened. These discs protrude into the spinal cord without breaking open or causing pain. Rather a small bubble comes out remaining attached to the disc.
Bulging is regarded as a part of the normal aging process of the disc, thus bulging discs are a regular spinal injury. In some cases they can be pain-free and undetected until twisting in the wrong direction, lifting the wrong-sized object, coughing or sneezing excessively. Excruciating pain begins to follow which can diminish a wide range of motions and can lead to organ dysfunctioning.
Sounds terrible… doesn’t it?
But don’t worry. The fortunate news is that such acute bulge discs can heal itself over sufficient time and with the care of a qualified chiropractor in Brisbane, they can help speed up the healing more effectively.
