Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to aid speedy recovery from back pain and help prevent its recurrence.
A bulging disc can be a common injury sustained to your spine’s intervertebral disc, and it can occur in your lower back (lumbar spine), upper and mid-back (thoracic spine) or your neck (cervical spine).
A bulging disc is also often referred to as a slipped disc or a protruding disc. If the disc bulge is large enough to injure the annulus (outer layer of the disc), the nucleus (inner substance of the disc) can press outwards on the weakened disc wall, causing your disc to bulge outwards.
Stress and other emotional factors play a major role in low back pain, particularly persistent / chronic low back pain – and many people unconsciously tighten their back muscles when they are under stress. The major drivers of chronic pain states are stress and anxiety; they have been found to cause around 80% of sufferer’s symptoms.
In cases where there was an injury this will usually heal in approximately 3-4 months. However, the pain is still experienced, driven by chemical release from the stress hormones adrenalin and cortosol. A number of vicious circles form as a result, thus perpetuating the pain state.
