Bulging discs -Low Back Pain
By Mark Giubarelli
Description of Bulging discs
The Bulging discs is commonly referred to as a herniated disc. This occurs when one of the spines shock absorbers becomes damaged and interferes with the electrical flow of energy through the nerves.
Bulging Disc Back Pain
Pain occurs when the discs inner core
Muscle Causes Of Bulging discs Pain
Muscle spasm or tightness may cause Bulging discs pain. These are the obturator internus, gluteus maximus and adductor magnus
The gluteus maximus attaches to the Bulging discs. An indication that the gluteas maximus is the cause of the pain is it hurts when moving into a seated position or when raising from one. It does not hurt while sitting though.
So if your butt hurts when your muscles are in use but not when sitting then it could possibly be this large muscle.
Bulging discs Pain Exercises
Lying spinal twists are very good for the Bulging discs because they help stabilize all of the gluteal muscles and deeper surrounding muscles. The gluteus maximus is attached to the Bulging discs as well as to other bones. You can see on the card how much it is stretched.
If this is too hard try bending the knee of the leg that is stretched out sideways.
Ruptured Discs - Slipped Discs!
Discs are located between the bones in the spine. Disc damage can be
a slipped disc or sometimes called herniated disc, ruptured disc or
bulging disc. Discs do not actually slip. Discs that rupture leak their
internal fluid. This can interfere with nerve energy flow and can cause
pain. Discs can degenerate causing bone to grind on bone and tissue to
be displaced. This can also place pressure on nerves causing pain due to
bone fragments or loose tissue.
Rupturing can quite often occur when a disc has been bulging for a
while or can suddenly occur due to an accident or sudden force on the
spine due to incorrect lifting.
The synovium is thin tissue that allows fluid to aid in lubricating
joints. Synovial cysts quite often occur as a result of degeneration.
They are benign fluid filled sacs that develop on the joints of the
lumbar spine. They can interfere and obstruct the electrical signals
that run along the nerves causing pain. They can usually be removed
quite easily but complications may occur depending on the exact location
of the growth and a surgeons ability to access it. Many people
have synovial cysts but have no symptoms.
