Acute disc prolapse/ Bulge – Back and neck

Acute disc prolapse/ Bulge - also called a "slipped" disc is common source of back or neck pain, this condition most often occurs in the lower back, as well as in the neck.

Herniated disc is mostly very painful, most people feels much better with simple, nonsurgical treatments in the form of rest, exercise and physiotherapy.

Cause - Disc herniation or rupture means the central nucleus pushes through the outer edge of the disc into the spinal canal. This puts pressure on the nerves. Spinal nerves are very sensitive to even slight amount of pressure, which will result in pain, numbness, or weakness in one or both legs.

Risk Factors - conditions that can weaken the discs include:
