Disc Bulge Physiotherapy

There is a gel-like substance inside the vertebrae that absorbs any shock from impact. When it  loses its shape and position it leads to disc bulge. 35% of back-pain patients suffer from disc-bulge or disc degeneration and most of them are affected in the lower back.

Disc bulge does not always show symptoms of pain, but depending upon where the disc bulge is located, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Neck and lower back pain that persists for a long time
  • Continuous pain in a specific area in the back.
  • Pain that radiates to your buttocks, thighs, knees, and feet. This may be a result of nerve endings being pressurized at the lower spine.
  • Back pain when coughing or sneezing
  • There is numbness or tingling in the legs or in hands, along with muscular weakness.

Get immediate medical care if:

  • The pain is debilitating
  • You lose bowel and bladder control
  • There’s numbness and weakness in your limbs
  • The pain doesn’t improve with medication or treatment
  • Difficulty in performing small tasks involving fingers, wrists, feet, and toes.
  • Constant night pain with reduced sleep.
  • Loss of balance
  • Blackout or ringing in ears

If there’s sciatica or a pinched nerve in the spine, it will interfere with your daily functioning.

Other than sudden injury, disc bulge happens over time and with age. Some of the reasons are:

  • Degeneration: Over a period of time, the hard exterior of the disc weakens, leading to disc bulge.
  • Axial overloading (lifting): Among younger patients, a sedentary lifestyle leads to a constant static load on the back, causing a disc bulge.
  • Body weight: Excess body weight, especially around the abdomen, put pressure on the lower back that the discs cannot sustain.
  • Gradual wear and tear: Intense physical activity like engaging in contact sports, aging, any physical trauma, and even poor posture can lead to disc bulge.

If disc bulge isn’t treated on time, it can lead to disc herniation (commonly known as slipped disc). The treatment is often based on the patient’s age and the severity of the
condition:

  • Conservative treatment methods: Disc bulge and the pain it causes can be managed spine rehabilitation and isolation treatment (an advanced device based therapy available C7Physio Clinic)
  • Surgical intervention: This step is only taken if the pain cannot be managed in 6-8 weeks and the condition is intolerable for the patient. Most cases can be managed with conservative treatment methods only and only about 5% of cases require surgery.
  • Cell Repair Treatment: We have discovered an advanced treatment where microcurrents of a specific frequency is administered to the patient. It reduces pain and inflammation of the tissues around the spine and speeds up cell, restoring it to normalcy.
