Degenerative Discs

Back and neck pain is often a result of a car accident. Frequently a doctor will find a degenerative disc. The disc may be either bulging or herniated. Bulging discs occur frequently even in asymptomatic people. There have been studies sowing people who have bulging discs that have never had back pain. However, the bulging can push on, or pinch the nerves as it exits the foramen. When a person gets a pinched nerve they often experience pain. Sometimes the pain goes down, or radiates, down the leg or arm. This is called radiculopathy. It is a common problem caused by injuries.
