Significant disc damage can result in a bulging disc, or even a tear, called a herniation. Sometimes, the gelatinous material inside the disc bulges out through a vulnerable area in the tough outer layer resulting in a Ruptured Disc. As well, the gelatinous center of the disc dehydrates as we age and Degenerative Disc Disease can set in. All forms of disc injury can distress the nerves exiting the spine, leading to a “pinched nerve,” causing numbness, tingling, burning or sharp pain down the arms or legs. A sharp pain originating in the back and “shooting” down the legs is Sciatica.
The most effective treatment available for Bulging Discs is Non-Surgical Spinal Disc Decompression using the DTS Spinal Decompression Device.
