Early diagnosis is the most effective treatment for all back pain
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 15, 2016
Advocate Pain Management Center, one of the most comprehensive pain management clinics in the great Houston area, is now treating ruptured and bulging discs. A ruptured or bulging disc is a common cause of back pain. The condition occurs when the outer wall of the disc weakens or ruptures, allowing the jelly-like nucleus inside the disc to bulge out, often pressing against nerve roots in the spinal column or the spinal cord.
It is important to identify ruptured or bulging discs early to enable proper diagnosis and treatment. Use of X-rays, CT scans and MRI can all be used to diagnose this condition. Once properly diagnosed, treatments include physical therapy, reasonable narcotics and cortisone. These methods are very effective at avoiding costly and painful surgery.
