Herniated or Bulging Disc Treatment in Prahran
A bulging disc or slipped disc is a common spine injury involving the intervertebral disc. This injury may occur in the neck, mid or upper back, or lower back. A bulging disc may also be referred to as a herniated disc or slipped disc.
Causes of a Bulging Disc and Slipped Disc
Bulging discs can be caused by a number of things, including a pre-existing weakness or a sudden trauma. Some injuries are the result of accumulated stress over time, as seen in individuals with poor posture. A sudden, unexpected impact such as a vehicle accident can also cause a disc to bulge. Some people have a predisposition to spinal injuries, with risk factors including obesity, poor core strength, and high-risk occupations such as those which require a lot of manual lifting.
Symptoms of a Bulging Disc and Slipped Disc
You may have a bulging disc and herniated disc in Prahran if you notice back pain that is worse when sitting, bending forward, lifting, coughing or sneezing. You may suspect a more severe disc pathology if you notice sciatica, numbness, weakness, or altered bowel or bladder function; be sure to discuss any of these symptoms with your chiropractor immediately.
