What is a Disc Tear?
A disc tear, or torn disc, generally refers to a tearing of the discs annular tissue, the outer layer of the spinal disc. Disc tear is typically caused by a combination of disc degeneration and trauma. When this combination occurs, the central disc material(nucleus) often moves into the torn area of the outer layer of the disc, forming an interpositional disc herniation. A disc tear could also allow for the nucleus to move through the torn disc to the outside of the disc annulus, causing a disc herniation. Learn More
Many healthcare professionals have found that neck, back, lower back and sciatic pain from disc tear can be eliminated, the damaged disc structures can be restored and the back surgery can be avoid. With their innovative treatment approaches, the torn disc related pain and other symptoms can be eliminated and the normal disc structure can be restored with 2 weeks to 3 months of treatment.
