Definition: A ‘Bulging Disc’ is a word used to describe findings seen on a MRI study of the spinal discs. The spinal discs are soft cushions that rest between the bones of the spine, the vertebrae. When a disc is damaged, it may herniate, or push out, against the spinal cord and spinal nerves.

A ‘Bulging Disc’ is a word commonly used to describe a slight outpouching of the disc. The words ‘Bulging Disc’ imply that the disc appears symmetric with a small amount of outpouching, and no significant herniation.

Bulging Disc is often an incidental finding on MRI. As people age, Bulging Disc are commonly seen on MRI. Bulging Disc can be seen in patients with no symptoms of back problems, especially in patients over the age of 40. A physical examination can help distinguish a Bulging Disc that is causing problems from a Bulging Disc that is an incidental finding.

Symptoms

The majority of symptoms caused by a Bulging Disc are related to irritation of spinal nerves. These nerves exit the spine through small holes called foramen. The spinal discs are located next to these nerve passageways. The bulging of the disc material caused by a Bulging Disc can “pinch” these nerves creating a variety of uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating symptoms.

Non-Surgical Spinal Disc Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Disc Decompression provides relief to severe back and neck pain sufferers by gently reducing the pressure within spinal discs. The bones of the spine are slowly and methodically separated. As the vertebrae are separated pressure is slowly reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum “sucks” the gelatinous center of the disc back into the disc thereby reducing the Disc Bulge. Significant disc bulge reduction removes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically reduce pain and disability. This “sucking” vacuum also pulls much-needed oxygen and nutrients into injured and degenerated discs allowing the healing to begin.

The treatment motion is computer controlled to provide gentle and painless decompression of the injured spinal discs. Advanced DRX9000 decompression techniques separate slowly and cycle between brief moments of pulling and relaxing (oscillation). This reduces protective muscle spasm that contributed to the poor success rate of outdated “traction” techniques. This allows the treatment to rely less on brute force (separating multiple levels with high force) and more on finesse (using less decompressive force to focus on a single spinal segment) to rehabilitate individual spinal discs.
