However, this is not always the case. With proper care, most back muscle sprains, strains, and disc injuries can heal without invasive measures.

If you want to know if you have a spinal disc problem, it is essential to understand that not all disc injuries are the same. While sudden pain onset can be a common symptom, the way you experience that pain may not be what you expect.

The most common type of spinal disc problem is a herniated disc, which usually occurs in individuals between 45-65 years old, whose discs have naturally become more dehydrated and stiff.
When diagnosed with a herniated or slipped disc, it means that one of the disc's inner layers has pushed through its tough outer layer. If someone has a bulging disc, that inner layer is protruding and likely very close to penetrating the outer layer.

Typically, the pain associated with a disc problem is twofold: if the disc bulges far enough to press on a spinal nerve, you may feel pain that travels down your arms or legs. If the inside of your disc pushes through the outer layer, it could cause severe inflammation resulting in pain.

If you're unsure if you have a spinal disc problem, it's best to make an appointment with a medical professional who specializes in spinal disc treatment. They can help you with an accurate diagnosis and suggest a course of action.

It's essential to note that your spine is incredibly resilient and can heal without invasive procedures, injections, or surgeries. Movement-based care like spinal adjustments and spinal manipulation can help your body heal and stay healthy.
Keeping up on your adjustments, even when you're not in pain, can help you avoid future spinal problems.
