What is Bulging Disc?

The function of a spinal disc is to absorb impact/weight bearing shock and to allow movement between spinal joints. The initial stages of a bulging disc may not be painful, most people have a bulging disc and don’t even know it! However, as the condition progress, it may often cause severe pain in the low back of sciatica down the leg.  An underlying weakness, in the ‘wrong place, wrong time’ can result in an injury or flare up. This extreme level of pain can cause a severe level of immobility. If a bulge is left without treatment it may then develop into a ‘herniated’ disc which is much more serious and often requires surgery.
