Hello, Abdoel Razzaq Syam Moerlan. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
The series of human spine is composed of vertebrae bones which are separated from each other and protected by fibrous cartilage called the intervertebral disc. Intervertebral discs have 2 functions, namely: (1) to separate one vertebrae from another vertebrae in the spinal sequence; and (2) transferring the load from one vertebrae to another vertebrae. Each intervertebrae disc consists of 2 parts, namely: (1) the annulus fibrosus, which is located in the outer layer; and (2) the pulposus nucleus, which is located on the inside and is surrounded by the annulus fibrosus.
Bulging disc is a spinal injury that often occurs in the intervertebral discs of the spine, both at the level of the lower back (lumbar), upper back (thoracica), or neck (cervical). In patients with bulging discs, the intervertebral discs protrude from their proper position. If this protrusion is so significant that the portion of the nucleus pulposus exits the annulus fibrosus, this condition is called a herniated disc / herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP).
In general, bulging discs can be caused by:
Small trauma that accumulates because it keeps repeating in the long term (for example: poor posture when sitting, standing, or working so that it burdens the spine)
The force / load is too heavy and sudden on the spine (example: a traffic accident)
Genetic factors (example: individuals with lower fibrocartilago fiber density in the annulus fibrosus in the intervertebral discs)
Generally the symptoms that patients complain about with bulging discs are back pain that weighs when sitting, bending, coughing, or lifting things. We advise you to consult with the doctor who is handling and planning your MRI examination in order to obtain an appropriate medical evaluation through history taking and physical examination. MRI examination is a supplementary examination whose results can only be interpreted appropriately if accompanied by clinical information obtained through history taking and physical examination. Your doctor may give you medication to treat pain and plan for physiotherapy. Surgery is not the first choice of therapy, except in certain circumstances the patient shows the indication. Regarding the recovery prognosis, this spinal cord injury requires a long period of time to several weeks to be able to subside, and risks to recur during the recovery period. However, the time of this repair can vary in each case, depending on the condition of each patient.
As a suggestion, you are advised to exercise regularly swimming 3-5 sessions every week, eat a balanced nutritious diet, and adequate rest.
