Intervertebral Disc Protrusions: Basic Information

Description of the Disease

Intervertebral disc protrusions are a condition in which the soft tissues of the discs between the vertebrae bulge beyond their limits. This can cause pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, leading to pain and discomfort.


  • Central protrusion
  • Foraminal protrusion
  • Median and paracentral protrusions


Symptoms may include back pain, weakness in the limbs, numbness, or cracking in the spinal area.


Protrusions can be caused by various factors, including age-related changes, injuries, or poor posture.


Diagnostic methods for protrusions may include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging, or computed tomography.


Treatment may include physical therapy, pain medications, injections, and in some cases - surgery.


Prevention of intervertebral disc protrusions involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle, correct posture, moderate physical activity, and preventing injuries.


Neurologists or orthopedic surgeons treat protrusions.
