If you’re experiencing neck or back pain/stiffness, it’s very likely that the disc is involved. Studies clearly prove that the disc is the source of pain in as high as 80-90% of neck and back cases. A common finding associated with disc disorders is limited or painful extension due to bulging in back. Besides causing pain, disc bulges often act like an obstruction to bending backwards. If you have pain/stiffness with extension or when getting out of a chair, as you see in these pictures, you may be suffering from a disc bulge. These findings are all strong indicators of the presence of a disc bulge. McKenzie Therapy offers specific exercises to reduce the bulging and restore pain-free motion.
