Bulging Disc Neck
Dealing with a bulging disc neck can be difficult.Of course it probably hurts since there’s a good chance it is pushing up against a nerve, but it can also be a little bit scary as well.

Often, the only treatment needed is a heating pad and an over-the-counter pain remedy, sometimes not even that. What a relief, and certainly reassuring. A few weeks makes back pain sound more like a minor inconvenience, not the second most common cause of disability as documented by the CDC* (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The most recent study shows that 47.5 million US adults (21.8%) reported a disability in 2005**, an increase of 3.4 million from 1999. Arthritis or rheumatism continues to be the most common cause of disability (8.6 million), while back or spine problems (7.6 million),
