There are many terms used to describe spinal disc problems, such as “herniated disc,” “disc protrusion,” and “bulging disc,” and all are used differently and, at times, interchangeably.

Herniated Disc is sometimes referred to as slipped or ruptured disc. But disc really don’t slip.

The most common region of the spine for disc bulge or disc herniation is the lower back (lumbar spine). However, a disc bulge can but more rarely happen in the neck (cervical spine).

Symptoms of a herniated disc and bulging can vary depending on the location of the herniation. A bulging disc or herniated disc can cause inflammation and lots of pain, nerve pain, back pain, leg pain, groin pain, and foot pain.

L4, L5 disc bulge, disc herniation, disc protrusion, disc extrusion. In this video, I’m going to teach you how to interpret your MRI report if you received an MRI report from your doctor or specialist saying you have an L4, L5 disc herniation or disc bulge.

Helping you relieve pain, conquer stress and supercharge your health the chiropractic way.

Hi, welcome to this video. I’m Dr. Walter Salubro. I’m a Chiropractor in Vaughan and the author of Back to Health by Choice: How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress and Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

And in this video, I’m not only going to teach you how to interpret and understand your MRI report but I’m also going to show you how I would interpret it as a chiropractor in terms of looking at it from a structural, corrective perspective and also show you the kind of options you have, truly, to get that taken care of and treated properly.

So, what sparked this video? Well, I received a question from one of my viewers and this is what she said. She’s 25 years old.

She says, “Dr. Walter, I have a disc bulge with post-central disc extrusion at L5 S1 level indenting the thecal sac and causing severe narrowing of bilateral, lateral recess and neural foramina with compression of the transversing and exiting nerve roots.”

She actually quoted her MRI report and she actually sent me a copy of her MRI report and I saw that word for word.

Then she goes on to say, “I was asked to consult a neurosurgeon who said that surgery is the only alternative to cure the severe pain I have while walking and sitting. He also told that if I don’t do surgery soon, chances are that my legs will get extremely weak in the future. Do you think I have any possibility of avoiding surgery in my case?”

I can really get where she’s coming from and I’ve seen many, many patients in my office that had back pain, leg pain, disruption in their lumbar spine, the lower back, and also damage to their disc.

So first of all, let me show you what these terms mean because these are very big terms on this MRI report and it’s good to understand it so you know how to position yourself in terms of what kind of options you have to take care of disc bulges or disc herniations.

  2. I am Having a back pain mainly in my sacrum region s2 .do we have disc at sacrum also .I don't have pain in legs .when I touch the lamina of the s2 region it pains .while touching .what could be the possible reason

  3. Good morning Dr Walter this is Carmen Miguel my MRI results are: 1. L4-L5 there's focal disc protusion 6-7 mm with left foraminal Stenosis and facet arthropathy
    2. At L3-L4 and L5-S1 there ate minimal disc bukge with faet Arthropathy,
    Can you helping me with this situation? It is a svere problem? I can't to walk only sitting. May send you muy MRI or may I see you where?

  4. Hello doctor I’m 20 years old, and its been 4 weeks, I got mild bulging in L4 L5 due to deadlift. I don’t have much pain, I just feel little tingling in my whole left leg. What should I do now? Do I have to see a chiropractor? And is this life time problem like I can never workout?

  5. Hi doc, hope you are doing well, my husband’s MRI came and it says:

    Loss of normal lumber lordosis is seen, which may be secondary to a muscle spasm.
    Disc dehydration seen at L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.

    L4-L5 :Diffuse disc bulge causing the cal indentation with bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.

    L5-S1 :Mild diffuse disc bulge causing anterior the cal indentation with a right foraminal stenosis and a left foraminal narrowing.

    His doctor has suggested surgery, is there any way to avoid surgery and recommend some excersises. Thanks

  6. Hi doctor,
    It's question about my my mother who suffering very serious pain in Spinal cord during six years. So we did MRI and THE RESULT IS AS FOLLOWS…….
    Please give me solution if there is …….

  7. I enjoyed your video – and really wish I didn't live thousands of miles from your clinic! My situation is this: After receiving an MRI and getting a diagnosis of Right foraminal herniation L4-5 and Right lumbar radiculopathy with extreme numbness in lower leg and bad pain in right low back and right hip (my thigh is somehow spared). Pain in hip and low back to the point where I can't walk more than 200 – 300 feet. Extreme pain if I lie flat and try to press right knee to floor. (I can't do it – but tried for MRI). I got a corticosteroid epidural today – and certainly no immediate relief. My ability to stand straight since incident has improved since incident – but still can't stand totally straight or lie flat. (I aggravated a long running problem in this area lifting heavy weight up stairs two weeks ago – but never been unable to walk).

    Here's my question: Can you do an adjustment on a patient with this much pain if you tried to manipulate a spine with this kind of limited movement? I've had many chiropractic adjustments in my life. I also worked on a cruise ship for 20 years and had a chiropractic convention onboard one week when my back was in a similar crisis. I asked one of them that happened to be in the gym with me at same time to look at my back as he had offered to help. He declined to adjust due to the degree of stenosis?/spasm that had me bent over unable to stand straight.

    How much mobility do you need to get an adjustment?

    Is there anything you might suggest I ask when I go to my first chiropractic session next week? (I have an appointment at a recommended clinic.)

    I sure hope I see someone who inspires confidence the way you do in your video.

    Thanks for any response!

  13. Hello Doctor,

    I am from India, I was diagnosed with L4-5 diffuse disc bulge with left para central herniation and partial extension to the neural foramina at L4-5 causing mild to moderate impression on thecal sac and adjacent nerve root(L>R). Mild ligamentum flavum/ facetal hypertrophy noted.
    The MRI was done in October when I had lot of pain through my hip to feet, the pain now has reduced a lot after performing exercises(Cat and camel, extension and bridging)to strengthen my back and has helped to certain extent, I am comfortable moving around but not for long. I do not have leg pain like before but every now and then there is a ting of pain on my hip and also can't lift my left leg like my right leg, there is pain after some extent of lifting the leg.
    Could you please suggest what else I could do, contact any surgeon or undergo physiotherapy or any additional exercises ?

  14. Sir one of my friend diagnosed with Becker type muscular dystrophy and when he visit china he was diagnose with muscle atrophy.
    He have applied to Canada but has visa was refused and now he is going to Germany next month.
    My first question is that do you have any clinic in Germany?
    Second question is that can chiropractor can help him?
    In MRI it's shows some problem in L4-L5

  15. Hi Dr. Walter Salubro. I am Patrick, I like sport : soccer, basketball, also running. I noticed that after playing soccer or basketball, my back used to paining me, but not after running. I saw my doctor, and I am barely diagnosed with a hernia disk L4L5 and disk protusions L4L5 L5S1. My question is, besides of taking my medecines, can I keep running with this ? Look forward to reading you. Sincerly.

  16. Good morning sir, with due respect,im suffering from back pain last from 6 months …the M.R.i report shows that there is a diffuse posterocentral disc bulge at L4-L5 level indenting the thecal sac and encroaching the bilateral intervertebral foramina,abutting the bilateral traversing and exiting nerve root(right>left)

  17. Hi Dr. Walter Salubro….I have this issue and am being treated by my Chiropractor for it with the DRX9000. You did a wonderful job explaining the issue and symptoms however i watched your vid for your recommendation of a solution and am disappointed that you didn't offer your thoughts on the corrective solution for it, whether in physical or mechanical manipulation. Just an observation on my part.
