A disc bulge can sometimes cause spinal pain. When this is the case, your healthcare team may recommend a variety of treatments for you to try. One such option is nucleoplasty, an advanced and minimally invasive treatment for spinal pain.

During the procedure, your doctor will use a special needle that emits radio waves. These radio waves dissolve excess tissue, reducing the size of a damaged disc. By reducing the size of the disc, the pressure can be released on the nerves to minimize the source of your pain.
