A bulging disc occurs when the disc —a soft tissue sac — between the vertebrae bones of the spine ruptures or shifts outside of the area it should be in. Also called a ruptured or slipped disc, this problem can occur in the neck area, but is most common in the lower back, called the lumbar region.

When a bulging disc first occurs, it may not be immediately apparent due to the lack of nerves it touches. However, pain, numbness, and tingling may occur in the buttocks and leg with a lumbar bulging disc, a painful condition called sciatica. A bulged or slipped disc will not move back into place on its own, and as the body ages, the disc tissue will only become more dry and less flexible, exacerbating the painful effects.

Bulging discs are often confused with herniated discs, but there is a difference. A bulging disc occurs when the interior soft tissue escapes the disc causing the disc to deflated, like a tire, and bulge outwards. A herniated disc is the result of a crack in the outer layer of cartilage that allows softer inner cartilage to come through the disk. Both can result in discomfort and should be treated by a medical professional.  

Bulging Disc Treatments for Neck and Back Pain - Deuk Spine Institute

Bulging disc treatment

Bulging disc can often be treated with exercises,  physical therapy and interventional pain management techniques. Sometimes these treatments do not offer enough relief, and patients may require surgery to provide relief from bulging disc pain. Thankfully, Deuk Spine Institute provides a minimally invasive bulging disc surgery, that has an excellent success rate and a fast recovery. Deuk Laser Disc Repair uses a small  incision and does not cut the bone, which can weaken the spine. Our advanced bulging disc surgery avoids the unpleasant side effects that most traditional spine surgeries incur, and has a 95% success rate and a very short recovery time.

Our endoscopic procedure uses a small, flexible tube with a camera and light to see into the body without large incisions, which tend to leave unsightly scars and require pain medications after surgery. A small, quarter inch incision is all that is required for our surgery.
