Bulging disc: is a very common problem, affecting about 10-12% percent of the adult population in the US leading to nerve problem. Nerve impingement can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc or encroached upon by bony overgrowth. Rec.: see an interventional pain management specialist.

Bad news: check with physical therapy doc. Avoid surgery if you can. But be sure and discuss with your doc.

Physical therapy can be very helpful in these circumstances but must be under the careful supervision relicense physical therapist and your physician.
