Causes of Disc Bulges and Disc Herniations
A bulging disc (protrusion) occurs when the disc annulus remains intact but forms an outpouching that can press against the nerves. A true herniated disc (also called a ruptured or slipped disc) occurs when the disc annulus cracks or ruptures, allowing the gel-filled center to squeeze out. A sequestered disc is when the inner disc contents fragment off the disc and become loose, this requires surgery.
Many people think about lifting injuries, car accidents, or even genetics when it comes to the cause of disc bulging and herniations. However, Dr. Norris finds that many of the people who come into Koru with discogenic pain have not had any recent traumatic accidents, and most don’t even have a history of trauma either.
So why do so many people suffer from discogenic (pain caused by disc bulge or herniation) pain? What Dr. Norris finds is that many people who are suffering from disc pain have lots of micro-trauma.
Micro-traumas are everyday activities such as sitting at a desk all day or driving for long periods of time, carrying a heavy briefcase or handbag on the same shoulder day after day, or very commonly extensive cell phone usage leading to postural distortions of the spine that put an extreme load or stress on the spine, which can then cause the discs to bulges under this increased stress. Every patient has their own story and unique issues, but the common underlying factor Dr. Norris most often finds is Text Neck and Forward Head Posture.

Disc Bulging or Herniation Pain Treatment
There are several reliable forms of disc pain treatment and most of our patients have tried just about everything before they find us. This is unfortunate because most healthcare practitioners just chase the pain, which is what makes Dr. Norris different. Not that he doesn’t care about how you feel and that you are feeling progressively better under his care, but what he finds is that if you correct the root cause of the problem at the source then all the other conditions start to resolve themselves.
This is because, above all else, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself, especially under the right conditions. This oftentimes means your spine does NOT need adjusting where it hurts, even though you are experiencing pain there, the problem is higher up or even lower down in the spine.
