Bulging Disc Treatments

Bulging Disc Treatments

Bulging disc treatments come in a variety of forms. The treatment your physician recommends for you would depend on several factors, such as the location of your bulging disc, the severity of your symptoms and how long you’ve been experiencing them. Often, bulging disc treatments start off with conservative therapies because most bulging disc cases are mild and patients start to feel better after a few weeks. As time goes on, however, your physician could recommend a stronger or more invasive bulging disc treatment to address symptoms that are having an impact on your quality of life.

Bulging disc treatments include:

  • Restriction from heavy lifting and other activities that would cause strain on the back
  • One or two days of bed rest
  • Ice pack application
  • Heat application through a heating pad or hot showers
  • Exercises as recommended by a physical therapist
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Pain medications (over the counter and/or prescription)
  • Epidural steroid (cortisone) injections
  • More

There also are alternative therapies for bulging disc treatment, such as:

Like many people, you might have tried all of the above bulging disc treatments, and yet you are still experiencing disruptive symptoms like severe pain, weakness, numbness and tingling that radiates from the location of your damaged disc to your limbs. In about 10 percent of bulging disc cases, surgery is necessary to provide patients significant relief from their pain and loss of function. Your physician might have already told you about open spine disc surgery that involves a hospital stay and large incisions.

The surgeons at Laser Spine Institute have perfected several minimally invasive techniques that have been tremendously successful in bulging disc treatment and in addressing many other back problems. Our bulging disc surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. For more information on Laser Spine Institute and our innovative procedures, please contact us today.
