6 Signs You Need Bulging Disc Treatment (and How to Avoid Surgery)
Many people believe that after a certain age, chronic back pain is just a normal part of life – this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Chronic back pain isn’t “normal” at any age. It’s a sign of an underlying condition that needs treatment.
Could your pain be the result of a bulging disc? Here are a few signs to watch out for and how to find comprehensive – and non-surgical – bulging disc treatment through spinal decompression.
6 Signs of a Bulging Disc You Need to Know
Bulging, herniated, or ruptured discs can take years of poor posture or bad lifting to develop. Although 95% of bulging discs take place in the lower back, bulging discs in your cervical spine (neck) are not unheard of.
Keep an eye out for these signs:
Pain between the shoulder blades – dull or sharp
Pain in your lower back – dull or sharp
Pain that radiates down through your arm or leg – especially during specific movements like coughing or sneezing
Numbness or tingling in your arms, legs, hands, or feet
Sciatica—electric-like pain that shoots through your hip down your leg
Muscle weakness after the nerves become damaged
