Disc protrusion articles
A disc protrusion is a spine condition that occurs when a spinal disc begins to bulge, or protrude, out of its normal place in the spinal column. There are many causes for this, but it is often due to the natural aging process of the spine.
As the spine ages, the discs dry out and become less able to withstand the pressure being placed on them by the surrounding vertebrae. Over time, a disc may become too compressed, causing it to flatten and expand under the pressure of the two surrounding vertebrae. This is called a bulging disc, or disc protrusion. While this condition itself does not cause pain or symptoms, a bulging or protruded disc can extend into the spinal canal and press against a nearby nerve. When this happens, debilitating pain and symptoms can occur.
