Posterolateral Disc Protrusion

herniated disk exercises 300x225 Posterolateral Disc ProtrusionThe term posterolateral disc protrusion is another way to describe the location of the occurrence of a disc bulge in relation to the disc itself.

In this case, posterolateral means that the disc protrudes between the side of the disc and the entrance of the intervertebral foramen (the opening where the spinal nerve passes).


As with most other types of disc conditions, a posterolateral disc protrusion often develops in the lower back, typically at L5-S1 level. Since the protruding disc presses directly on the nerve root, this form of protrusion is mostly symptomatic with radiating pain.

A great way to treat disc protrusions is a targeted exercise program combined with alternative treatment options such as massage therapy.
