Herniated Disc Treatment in Murray
WHY DO WE GET BACK OR NECK PAIN?
The most important thing to remember is that back pain is most often the result of a structural problem and until the structure of your spine is addressed, the pain will persist.
HOW ARE DISCS DAMAGED?
Overall, discs are very tough and resilient; however they are very susceptible to injury with repetitive activity and loading.
WHAT IS A HERNIATED OR BULGING DISC?
When your disc is damaged or torn, the nucleus — the soft jelly like substance inside the disc can leak out. If it leaks out completely, it’s called a herniated disc. If the layers of the outer material (annulus) are not all completely torn, discs can bulge without herniating. It’s like if you step on a balloon and it doesn’t pop. The balloon bulges out to one side or the other without the rubber breaking.
Symptoms of herniated discs include:
- Numbness or tingling in the body part(s) connected to the affected nerves
- Pain that shoots up or down into you arm or leg
- Weakness in the muscles connected to the affected nerves
