Between 60% and 80% of American adults will suffer some form of back pain. For many of them, the cause will be a bulging disc in the spine. Most cases of a bulging disc occur in the lower back and are caused by overwork or straining the lumbar spine. This repetitive bending and torsion cause undue stress on the vertebrae, which presses on the flexible intervertebral disks in between. Too much pressure can cause this material to erupt out from between the vertebrae, “bulging” out or herniating and causing pain and inflammation.
The bulging disc material can also press on nerves of the spinal column, causing localized pain and referred pain in other parts of the body. Disc degeneration or injury are the major causes of a bulging disc, and repeated activity only exacerbates the condition. Common symptoms include back pain, numbness or tingling in the legs, weakness in the legs or feet and possibly loss of bladder or bowel control.
