At the Spine Institute, we offer our patients flexibility and comfort to be seen virtually and find state of the art procedures that work for them.

BULGING DISC

Our spinal column is made up of stacked vertebral bones. Soft cartilage discs in our back are positioned between the vertebrae to cushion them as we flex and move. Each disc has a skin of tough outer cartilage that is shaped to fit precisely between the vertebrae it cushions. As we age, our discs may lose their shape and begin to protrude beyond their proper position. We refer to these protruding discs as a bulging disc.
