A bulging disc is a condition that occurs when there is a tear in the outer ring of one of your intervertebral discs, causing the soft portion to bulge out and out of place.

If you start feeling pain from bulging discs, I would suggest trying to use some natural methods to relieve the pain - I found some great methods that helped with my back pain - see related links.
