LOWER BACK PAIN

As people age, bone strength, muscle elasticity and tone tend to decrease. The lumbar discs begin to lose fluid and flexibility, which decreases their ability to cushion the vertebrae. If the spine becomes overly strained or compressed, a disc may rupture or bulge outward. This rupture may put pressure on one of the more than 50 nerves rooted to the spinal cord that control body movements and transmit signals from the body to the brain.


PINCHED NERVE

A pinched nerve is a condition that occurs when surrounding tissue or structures compress the nerve and reduces its ability to function properly. The most common places in the spine in which a pinched nerve occurs are in the neck or lower back. If the lower lumbar nerves become compressed or pinched, this condition is commonly referred to as sciatica.


BULGING DISC

Neck/Back Problems Orlando FL Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute A disc bulges when the outer layer of a vertebral disc swells outward and places pressure on the surrounding nerves and structures. Although a bulging disc is similar to a herniated disc, it is different in that the inner material has not seeped out through the outer layer of the disc. A bulging disc will usually occur in the lower back or the neck, but may also be found (very rarely) in the mid back.
