Bulging, Torn or Ruptured Discs
Discs are part of the structure of the spine and act as "shock absorbers," providing a cushioning effect between the vertebrae. Discs are filled with a jelly-like core. With age and use, the discs become drier and can sometimes rupture. A disc can also develop cracks that can leak and cause pain.
There are different treatment options for bulging discs depending on the extent and type of injury. These methods are: Discography, Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy (IDET), and Percutaneous Discectomy
