What are bulging disks and herniated disks?

Trauma to the neck, arthritis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease, structural misalignment, or vertebral misalignment can cause bulging disks. The disks are made up of spongy, cartilaginous material that provides shock absorption within the spinal column. They also provide a cushion that improves flexibility between vertebrae and in general movement.

When a disk bulges, it expands out of its normal location and can put pressure on nerve roots or the spinal cord causing pain and numbness. Similarly, a compromised disk can rupture, leaking the cushiony material out of the disk and into the spinal column. This is known as a ruptured or herniated disk. Eventually, the material that makes up the cushion is absorbed back into the body over time.

"Lisa is terrific! I have been dealing with neck and back pain for 14 months and nothing I tried was working for anything more than temporary relief. At the recommendation of a friend I decided to try acupuncture as I felt the cause of my pain was deeper than than just muscle tightness. I am so glad I took the chance and tried Lisa! She was kind, knowledgeable and I felt 70% better after my first treatment! 3 visits is all it took for me to feel 95% me again!"
