Herniated Disc Treatment

Disc injuries mostly happen in two ways, major trauma and minor trauma. Major injuries like car accidents and other major traumas can cause the fibers to rip and the disc material can bulge, protrude or herniate immediately and over time through repetitive injury.  Excessive strain can happen over time and gradually damage discs and cause major pain, numbness/tingling, and even muscle weakness.

  • Location of the disc
  • Nerve involvement

These symptoms can lead to lower back pain and other pains. Common symptoms of herniated discs are:

  • Back, leg, and arm pain
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Weakness in the muscles located near the affected nerves
  • Loss of stability

Causes of a Herniated Disc

A simple strain or twist can cause a disc or discs to herniate. However, this condition normally affects many through gradual disc degeneration. This aging-related wear and tear make the spinal discs less flexible and more susceptible to rupturing and tearing. With this progression of degeneration, a simple strain or twist can cause disc to herniate.
