Herniation of intervertebral disc ( Bulging disc)
For this disease, trauma on disc or internal degeneration (degenerative) causes inflammation of the disc and compression of the nerve. Symptoms and treatments are very similar to those of herniation of intervertebral disc (herniation of vertebral pulp). Note, however, that the nerve is compressed not by a herniated pulp but by the protrusion of the disc itself. Thus, regular vertebral surgery - which relieves nerve compression through excision of the pulp - is not applicable in this case. Delay of treatment raises the possibility of developing herniation of intervertebral disc (herniation of vertebral pulp) wherein the inner pulp deviates from its position. Generally, when a doctor says, "it's herniated disc, but surgery is not yet required", the condition is bulging disc.
