Bulging discs also know as a spinal disc herniation (prolapsus disci intervertebralis), informally and misleadingly called a "slipped disc", is a medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) of an intervertebral disc (discus intervertebralis) allows the soft, central portion (nucleus pulposus) to bulge out. Tears are almost always posterior-ipsilateral in nature due to the presence of the posterior longitudinal ligament in the spinal canal.
Bulging Discs (Slipped Discs, Herniated Discs) are often a result from faulty spinal mechanics due to the accumulation of stress & tension to the spine. This condition can be properly assessment and treated by a chiropractor. Hands on therapy such as chiropractic & massage therapy help provide relief by getting to the source of the problem and allowing for rapid healing. Call 604-733-7744 for relief!
Bulging discs or spinal disc herniationis normally a further development of a previously existing disc protrusion, a condition in which the outermost layers of the annulus fibrosus are still intact, but can bulge when the disc is under pressure.
