Bulging Disc Treatment

Spinal discs provide a cushion between the vertebrae. They help to protect the spinal cord and nerves while allowing flexibility and movement by absorbing shock. When the outer portion of a spinal disc is damaged due to injury or degenerative disease, it can bulge. Patients with bulging discs may experience no symptoms or many, depending on what nerves and tissue are affected. For those with chronic back and neck pain or mobility issues caused by a bulging disc, Medici Medical Arts offers effective treatments at our facilities in the greater Atlanta area.

Causes and Symptoms of Bulging Discs

Spinal or intervertebral discs are hard on the outside and soft in the middle. The outer, hard shell confines the soft material inside. A bulging disc occurs when the outside shell is damaged or leaks, allowing a portion of the softer inside to bulge. This can occur as a result of a back or neck injury that causes trauma to the disc, but it is more commonly from degenerative disc diseases. The outer shell of the disc can become brittle and fragile with age, allowing the soft interior to bulge.

When an intervertebral disc bulges, it can put pressure on the nerves around the spine. In the neck or cervical spine, a bulging disc can cause neck pain. It also affects the shoulder, arm and hand with tingling, numbness or pain. Lumbar spine or lower back bulging discs can cause localized pain or sciatic pain and numbness that affects the buttocks, hips and legs.

Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts offers pain relief and treatment for bulging discs. We provide many different non-invasive therapies that minimize pain and improve mobility. Bulging discs that do not respond to conservative treatments may require surgical intervention. We offer minimally-invasive endoscopic surgery for spinal disc repairs at our state-of-the-art surgical center in Marietta. Contact one of our offices to schedule an appointment if you have chronic pain caused by a bulging disc.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
