A herniated disc can occur anywhere in the spine, but it most commonly happens in the lower back( lumbar> cervical ). A herniated disc can cause discomfort, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg, depending on where it is located.
Disc herniation is most commonly caused by disc degeneration, which is gradual wear and tear caused by aging. The discs grow less flexible as people age and are more prone to tearing or rupturing with even modest strain or twist.
Most patients cannot determine the reason for their ruptured disc. Lifting large weights with the back muscles rather than the leg and thigh muscles can result in a herniated disc, as can twisting and turning while lifting.
Herniated discs most commonly affect the lower back, although they can also affect the neck. The signs and symptoms vary depending on the location of the disc and whether it is pushing on a nerve. Herniated discs are most commonly found on one side of the body.
A physical exam and a medical history are usually all that is required to diagnose a herniated disc. Your doctor may request one or more of the following tests if they suspect another condition or wants to know which nerves are impacted.
Tests of imaging
Nerve tests such as nerve conduction study and electromyography can also be indicated.
In rare cases, disc herniation can compress the spinal canal, including all of the cauda equina nerves. Emergency surgery may be required in such cases to avert lifelong weakening or paralysis.
Conservative treatment, which consists primarily of changing activities to prevent painful movement and taking pain medication, improves symptoms in most people within a few days or weeks.
Only a small percentage of persons with herniated discs require surgery. If conservative therapy fails to alleviate your symptoms, your doctor may recommend surgery, when there are any of the following red flags ( warning signs).
Interventional pain management
If the pain lasts longer than six weeks, there’s a good chance it won’t go away without treatment. Because the disc will never “un-herniate” or return to normal, there is always the risk of pain reappearing at any time. Interventional pain management can help with this.
