Do you experience pain when sitting down? Does your back pain seem to get worse when doing activities such as bending, lifting, pushing/pulling, or when coughing or sneezing? Does it feel like your pain radiates down your leg? If you answered YES to all three of those questions, you may have a slipped or bulging disc. While a slipped or bulging disc can be extremely painful, for most people the symptoms are not long-lasting and can usually be treated without surgery. If you are experiencing lower back pain that doesn’t improve or worsens over time, you want to contact your doctor. Through imaging and examination a qualified spinal physician can diagnose your condition and get you on the path to recovery. Looking to improve your mobility and restore motion?
