The lumbar spine, also known as the lower back, is an arrangement of interconnecting bones, joints, nerves, and ligaments that all work together to give us mobility and support. Nonetheless, everyday life may cause this complex arrangement to become vulnerable to stress, injury and pain.

One type of injury or stress to the lower back may be a bulging disc. A bulging disc can put put pressure on the spinal cord or a nearby nerve root causing lower back pain. Common symptoms of this can be numbness, tingling, or pain down the leg. A common treatment of this is to cut away the bulging disc tissue. This can permanently alter its ability to separate and cushion the adjacent bones.
