    Re: [RC] Rider bulging disc - MarisR

    Bulging discs are a normal finding in many people after the age of 40, sometimes younger.  You didn't give your age.  Most Orthopedic researchers will tell you that they are not certain that bulging discs are even the casue of the pain that prompted you to have tests done.  Don't worry too much.  Make sure you are in good shape physically.  Take your glucosamine, a multivitamin with minerals, calcium, and regular exercise.  Watch your posture.  long periods of time bent forward are the biggest casue of disc problems.  Sit up straight, shoulders back.  Hope that helps.
