  • For some severe cases, it can occur on the middle portion of the spine that is named as a herniated disc.

Most of the people get confused about the herniated disc and the bulging disc. They are related to the soft tissues that help for the movement of the body. Each of these discs has a soft substance inside and that surrounded by an outer layer that helps to maintain the disc structure.

When the annulus fibrosis that supports the outer layer, initially degenerate itself first then the vertebral canal gets to escape from the inner nucleus pulposus this leads the excess pressure on the root of the spine. This pressure makes the bulging disc to dislocate and the numbing and tingling sensation of the area surrounded it. If it is found at the initial stage then as per we saw, it can be curable easily without medications.
