What’s the difference between a slipped, bulging or herniated disc injury?

“Slipped disc” is actually an incorrect term. Intervertebral discs don’t “slip” because they act as ligaments, securely attaching the vertebrae on either side. The disc’s fibrous outer membrane contains a gelatinous nucleus inside, cushioning the spine, enabling you to bend, twist and move your back:   

  • Bulging disc—The outer membrane weakens and bulges—uneven pressure causes a protruding bulge.
  • Herniated disc—The outer membrane splits open, the nucleus may “slip” out of the disc, pinching nerves.

A disc herniation is more severe than a bulging disc, but both can cause back pain requiring treatment. When the disc injury is in the lower back, low back pain and sciatica (pain, numbness and tingling radiating down the leg, into your feet) may manifest. If the disc injury is higher in the spine, pain numbness and tingling may spread to the arms and cause other symptoms.

What Causes a Herniated Disc Injury?

Any sudden traumatic injury can cause a sudden disc herniation. However, a herniated disc usually happens after the disc has been weakened over time by: 

After years of uneven wear and tear like this, just sneezing, bending over or picking something up incorrectly can suddenly cause disc herniation. 

Chiropractic Care for Disc Herniation Pain Relief Treatment

Chiropractic care resolves disc injury, providing long-term pain relief without invasive treatment. By correctly aligning your spine, your chiropractor removes uneven pressure from discs, releasing nerves pinched by the herniation.

In addition, your chiropractor coaches you on correct posture and ergonomics for every situation! Practice good posture, strengthen your core, and get proper nutrition to avoid future disc injury!

  • "If you have back and/or neck trouble and have never been to a chiropractor before, then this is the place for you. I was referred here by my wife who has been seeing the doctors for several years. Since starting my adjustments I sleep better and feel better all around, and no it doesn't hurt. Currently I am recovering from tennis elbow and bursitis which the doctors are helping me recover by using a massager on my arm when I visit, even my physical therapist was glad they were helping out."

Our kiddos get adjusted too and for our infant it helped him to crawl properly when he was having difficulties or crawling abnormally. It is a vital part of our healthiness and we would recommend them to everyone!"
