Disc protrusions may occur when the outer wall of the intervertebral disc suffers from a combination of low grade tearing and subsequent over-expansion. The disc stretches outward, while not fully rupturing, protruding much further into the spinal cavity than a typical bulging disc. Deuk Spine Institute is a leader in treating severe disc protrusions that cause patients pain and ongoing discomfort. For those requiring surgery, our minimally invasive laser spine surgery has over a 95% success rate.   

Disc Protrusion Diagnosis

Some patients may go their entire lives without a sign of a troublesome disc protrusion, but disc protrusions only become problematic once symptoms occur. The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is necessary to visually determine if the disc extends beyond the bounds of the vertebrae and identify the suspected protruded disc. If a protruding disc is found, a physical exam and assessment of discomfort will help to determine whether any tingling, numbness, loss of motion or pain are the result of the disc.

Disc Protrusion Treatment

Once a disc protrusion causing neurological symptoms is found and diagnosed, it is recommended that treatment begin promptly to prevent the risk of additional damage to nerves and soft tissues in the area. With problematic disc protrusions, it is important to properly identify the source of the pain or discomfort and begin a program. This allows the disc to repair the tearing that compromises the structure of the disc. If treatments such as exercise, physical therapy plans, and epidural spine injections  are ineffective, minimally invasive spine surgery may be recommended. Our advanced spinal surgery utilizes the latest laser surgery techniques, has over 95% success rate, and does not weaken or damage the bone, which results in a fast recovery.
