A: Herniated discs are very common. It has been found that they are present in people who have no symptoms – even 20 year olds! Experts now say that spinal changes such as herniated discs and arthritis are related to age (like graying hair or wrinkling skin) not symptoms. It appears that the difference between a person with a herniated disc who has no symptoms and one who has symptoms has to do with how their body is coping or stabilizing their back. We specialize in enhancing your functional ability to stabilize your back so that the disc bulge is not as relevant.
