DISC HERNIATION AND BULGES

Discs act as cushions between the vertebrae in your spine. They’re composed of an outer layer of tough cartilage that surrounds softer cartilage in the center.

 

A bulging disc extends outside the space it should normally occupy.

WE TREAT HERNIATED DISCS

The bulge typically affects a large portion of the disc, so it may be seen as an over flowing structure over the vertebral bone above and beneath the disc.

The part of the disc that’s bulging is typically the tough outer layer of cartilage. Bulging usually is considered part of the normal aging process of the disc.

WE TREAT HERNIATED DISCS

A herniated disc, on the other hand, results when a crack in the tough outer layer of cartilage allows some of the softer inner cartilage to protrude out of the disc. Herniated discs are also called ruptured discs or slipped discs.

"Dr. JP was very thorough with my exam and put together a plan which only took a few visits to make a huge difference. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. My first visit was a year ago, and I have been back a few time as needed. I would and have recommended Dr. JP."

"After my little fender bender my back wasnt quite feeling right, nothing major but a little out of alignment. Dr Silvera was excellent, diagnosing the sore spots in my back without telling him, after a couple visits I felt better then I did when I was 20. Will definitely be back to do some quarterly work on my back even if not needed."
