Disc Conditions

We specialize in disc conditions.

Disc Conditions that we focus on include the following:

Discopathy or Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD): Damaged or worn down disc. Disc is an elastic, rubbery cushions between the vertebrae (bones in the spinal column) and acts as a shock absorber. Discs give the spine flexiblity to move, bend, and twist.
Herniated Disc / Slipped Disc / Bulging Disc: It is a condition that some of the nucleus which is the jellylike center of the disc pushes out through a tear in an annulus fibrosis. Annulus fibrosis is a tougher rubbery exterior portion of the disc that encases the nucleus at the center of the disc.
Spinal Canal Stenosis (Spinal Canal Narrowing): Decrease in the spaces inside the bones of the spine which is called “spinal canal” due to either a bulging disc or a wear-and-tear changes in the spine from arthritis which cause a pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine.
Foraminal Stenosis (Neural Foraminal Narrowing): Decrease in the neural foramen which is an opening where a spinal nerve exits the spine to branch out into the body. This narrowing space may caused by either a bulging disc or a wear-and-tear changes in the spine from arthritis. This condition casues a pressure on the spinal nerves that exits the spine and generate neurological symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in upper or lower limbs.
