Bulging Disc
Treatment in Pune

Anatomy of a bulging disc

The bulging disc is a problem associated with the rubbery discs that are present between the bones of our spine. Our spinal column works like a pipeline for the spinal cord and nerves to move down the body and branch out towards different organs and parts. These branches pass from spine through tunnel between two adjacent vertebrae called foraminal canal. When one of these discs bulge ,it narrows the central or foraminal canal pinching the spinal nerves passing from above or below them, causing dysfunction, pain, and mobility issues. Ultimately, it affects the connected organs.

What causes a bulging disc?

A bulging disc is generally caused due to disc degeneration, a term for gradual age-related wear and tear. However, there are other factors also that result in a bulging or a herniated disc, such as excessive strain or a back injury.

How can a bulging disc be treated non-surgically?

Non-surgical treatment often includes:

Medications

NSAIDs

The most commonly prescribed NSAIDs for bulging disc treatment are aspirin, naproxen, and ibuprofen. In addition, OTC medications such as Acetaminophen are also helpful for providing relief from pain.

Epidural steroid injection

A cortisone-like drug is injected into the area around the nerve and brings short-term pain relief by decreasing the inflammation.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is often used to train patients on good body mechanics, which helps to avoid excessive wear and tear on the discs. Specific exercises help strengthen your lower back and abdominal muscles.

The physical therapy programs will focus on improving the movements of body parts and reducing the spasms by freeing up the impinged nerves. They include stretching exercises and posture modifications that can balance bodily pressure and improve overall mobility. These simple exercises strengthen the muscles and help ease pressure on the spinal discs. Ultimately, it creates an environment for the body to repair the injured disc and undo nerve impingement.

Surgery is a resort treatment that is performed when the condition of the patient gets severe. For instance, non-invasive spine surgery in Pune is only recommended when medicines and therapies stop benefiting the patient.
