Navigating the Pain: A Comprehensive Guide To Understanding and Managing Bulging Discs

They are known by different other names, bulging discs, or herniated, slipped, or ruptured discs. It all generally refers to the same condition which typically results in pain due to damage to your spinal discs. But there is help available in the form of different treatments to help you better manage these symptoms, you can learn more by reaching out to Dr. Craig Callewart who serves the areas of Addison, Dallas, Forney, and Rockwall, TX.

Causes

Spinal discs have a harder outer layer and a softer gel-like center. The outer layer can become damaged over time and crack, allowing the soft center gel to leak through and cause pressure and pain as it pushes into nearby nerves.

Common risk factors include aging, being overweight, strains, injuries, and repetitive motions.

Symptoms

Symptoms of bulging discs can depend on a variety of factors, such as where on your spine the affected disc is located. Usually, pain can worsen with movement but you may feel better when resting.

The condition can cause sciatic nerve pain, which manifests as pain that extends from your lower back and down your leg.

When the herniated disc is located closer to your neck you may feel pain in the surrounding areas, and can extend to your arms, hands, and fingers.
