Prevention of a Bulging Disc is Key!

If it’s impossible for you to avoid some of the flexing movements that can lead to a bulging disc, there are some key ways to prevent the injury even while at your desk job.
  • Exercise regularly. Strengthening the trunk muscles helps stabilize and support your spine.
  • Keep good posture. Remind yourself to keep your back straight and in a neutral position, especially when sitting at your desk for long periods.
  • Take breaks to avoid sitting for hours on end, and remember the old adage: lift heavy objects with your legs, not with your back!

What is a Bulging Disc?

When we think of spraining ligaments or joints we usually think of the ankle or wrist. In reality, most neck and back pain is actually a sprain injury to the posterior wall of one or more spinal discs.

Whether this occurs from an injury or trauma is a result of poor habits that have compounded over time, the result is weakness in the disc’s annular fibers, causing it to bulge or herniate.

Most often, people feel bulging disc pain as stiffness or achiness and dismiss it as muscular. However, most of the time the pain you feel in these cases isn’t due to muscle soreness.
