5 Signs You Have a Bulging Disc
Bulging discs are not the same as herniated discs. Bulging discs develop over time while herniated discs are sudden, often caused by moving the wrong way or injury. Bulging discs are most commonly brought upon by age and affect multiple discs.
By age 35, roughly 1 in 3 people will develop some degree of disc degeneration. That rate jumps to 9 in 10 by age 60. The better you take care of your back and spine, the more gracefully you’ll age. So if you have any signs or symptoms of a bulging disc, head to Ridge Farm Back Pain Center.
Chiropractic Care for Your Bulging Disc
Once properly diagnosed, chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat a bulging disc. You don’t have to rely on pharmaceuticals to chase the symptoms; instead, we treat the cause with a variety of therapies, including spinal manipulation to encourage the disc to glide back into place.
Since bulging discs can create a cascade effect of other health issues, we’ll complete your treatment with a full exam. This is a proactive approach to your health, helping keep healthcare costs and maintenance down, instead of waiting to react when something else starts hurting.
Healing time depends on the severity of your bulging disc. With proper care, a mild bulge takes 2-4 months to fully heal. We highly recommend followup chiropractic maintenance care for overall health and wellness.
