What is a Bulging Disc?

A bulging disc is when your disc is expanding out of your spine. This condition results in nerve irritation or tissue inflammation. A common condition, bulging discs can either show a lack of symptoms or severe pain. Common causes of bulging discs include sports injuries, traumatic incidents or aging of your body and discs. Pressure from the inner area of a disc being expanded to the outer area will often cause a bulging disc.

What Are the Symptoms?

Some instances have been known to produce pain that can spread to the buttocks, hips and even your feet. A bulging disc in the cervical spine can result in pain throughout the neck, arms and hands. In severe cases, a bulging disc can result in lack of mobility.
