    Hi, I've read on SS that it's reasonably common for people to have a partial / semi herniated spinal disk ( I don't know the exact term) and they don't know it. This must mean that it causes no pain or discomfort, else they'd obviously know about it!

    My question is - are these partial / semi herniated disks a ticking time bomb for future trouble or can they be there for years and never fully slip? Or even just pop back into place?

    I'm not a Dr, but I'm guessing an answer will sound something like "Everybody's different, depends on form/training/recovery other actives........ " etc....

    There are longitudinal imaging studies that show these disc protrusions / herniations have a fairly robust mechanism for healing. No, they are not ticking time bombs, though, some small percentage can progress to being problematic.

    Thanks for the reply Will, are you quoting an opinion or are you trained medically in any way?
    I'm not bitchin' or looking for a war or words, just interested as I've had a definite lumpy/bulge type sensation right hand side mid lumbar for a few weeks which subsides from time to time then reappears with no pain or numbness or anything.

    I'm just some dude on the internet, but, I'd like for you to look at a couple pictures on the internet of the spine and tell me if it is possible to have a disc herniation that 1) you can palpate and 2) would end up in the paraspinals.

    Big-Green-Mud-Machine: you needn't worry about herniating a disc into the adjacent paraspinal musculature. In order for that to have happened, the disc would have blown through your spinal canal and would have to move with the velocity of a bullet.

    It's far more likely you have a small amount of hypertonic muscle tissue in your paraspinals that needs to be massaged out. I just simply isn't possible for you to be able to palpate discs, even herniated discs.

    Or it could be a "back mouse." They aren't uncommon.
