Conservative Treatment for Bulging Disc Pain in Nashville, TN
If you’re suffering from bulging disc pain, you are not alone. Countless Americans struggle with back pain every day, including the lingering discomfort that can stem from bulging discs. That’s why The Spine Center at Precision Pain Care in Nashville, Tennessee offers an array of innovative treatments for back pain, while avoiding extensive surgery or heavy narcotic use.
A bulging disc, also known as disc protrusion, occurs when one of the spine’s cushioning intervertebral discs begins to bulge in one direction as a result of repeated strain, sudden impact, or age-related degeneration. If the displaced disc irritates or compresses one of the nearby spinal nerves, it may cause shooting pain, numbness, and muscle weakness that can make it difficult to perform everyday activities like driving, walking, and even standing.
Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst and the rest of the team at Precision Pain Care take a conservative approach to bulging disc treatment to provide real hope to pain sufferers without the risks of traditional open spine surgery. Our Nashville practice offers an array of interventional pain techniques, including:
- Minimally invasive nerve block procedures
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Sacroiliac and facet joint injections
- Cervical, thoracic, and lumbar epidural steroid injections
- Radiofrequency neurotomy
- And others
Precision Pain Care is proud to work alongside the region’s first and only interventional pain surgery center. Patients who choose to undergo one of our minimally invasive procedures can be assured that they will receive a high level of specialized care in a state-of-the-art environment.
