I have a bulging disk too. I find Zumba makes me feel better. Good advice, if it hurts, stop. There are a few movements having to do with my arms, if you can believe it, that I can't do. I just modify the move...and keep on moving!

I really can't say. Are these old injuries? Are you in pain anytime or just when excersising? I have back issues in the same area and live in fear of a bulging disk, so I began personal training over a year ago to stregthen my back and core and prevent injury. As a Zumba Instructor, now, I cannot get hurt, it would be bad for business. When I was learning Zumba from others, my mode of opperation was- if it hurts, stop, if it doesn't hurt, it's ok to do it. Hope this helped.

WW gave me the tools and Zumba gave me the motivation and confidence to keep going. I'm happy with who I am now.
