disc bulges and herniation

A Herniated Disc, also known as a slipped or ruptured disc, is a condition that occurs when one of the discs separating vertebral bones in the spine ruptures or tears. These discs serve as essential cushions and shock absorbers between vertebrae, creating space for spinal nerves to exit the spine. These nerves travel to various regions of the body, including the arms, legs, and internal organs.

Herniated or Bulging Intervertebral Discs represent significant health concerns that may necessitate urgent surgical intervention. Traumatic incidents like car accidents or improper lifting can result in immediate and severe pain, while other underlying causes may manifest more subtly and inconspicuously.

One of the challenges in diagnosing disc issues is that these structures are not visible on standard plain-film radiographs. Therefore, a comprehensive Clinical History and Physical Examination are crucial to ascertain whether a condition indeed involves a Herniated Intervertebral Disc or a Differential Diagnosis, such as Nerve Injury or Stenosis, which can present with similar clinical symptoms.

Treatment options for Herniated or Bulging Discs can vary based on the severity, type, and level of disc injury.
