Donuts, discs and what they have to do with each other...

Herniated discs (also called bulging or slipped discs) are vertebrae discs that get pushed out from between vertebrae and impinge on sensitive nerve endings extending throughout the spine. Spinal discs are gelatinous cushions composed of fibrous soft tissues designed to protect bony vertebrae from rubbing and scraping against each other.

How long does it really take to recover?

One of the most common issues I encounter when helping people recover from an injury or from surgery is the healing time of various tissues.

Additional contributing factors, such as diabetes, age, poor nutrition, inadequate rest, etc. can further delay the healing process.
