Disc Bulges and Herniation
Disc bulges and herniation are back conditions where the outer edges of the discs between the vertebrae, have been injured causing the center to bulge or become inflamed.

Muscle, Tendon and Ligament Sprains
Muscle sprains usually happen when we push our body too far, or when we are involved in car accident or accident at work. Improper lifting technique, or poor stretching will often result in a back strain or sprain. These can be very painful, result in swelling that changes the alignment of the spine.
