“Can disc bulges be healed?” – Back Pain & Sciatica
March 30, 2022
If you have a bulging disc in your lower back (aka your “lumbar spine”), and it’s causing sciatic nerve pain, a great question to start with is “can you heal your bulging disc”?
After all, if you can’t heal your bulging disc and relieve your sciatic nerve pain, you’ll want to act quickly to see if something more invasive is needed (like injections or surgery).
I have good news for you: most disc bulges CAN be healed!
In this video, I’m going to walk you through how to tell if your bulging disc can be healed, which will include a discussion of disc bulges vs. disc herniations, as well as an introduction to the “top 3 causes of lower back pain and sciatica”.
I hope this video helps you figure out if your bulging disc can be healed!
In my next video, title “How to heal a bulging disc”, I’ll explain in full detail how to heal a bulging disc and eliminate sciatic nerve pain.
Thanks for watching!
