Herniated or Bulging Discs

Are you experiencing intense back or neck pain that radiates down your legs or arms?

At RelievUS, we understand the impact that herniated discs can have on your daily life, and our team of experienced pain management specialists is here to provide you with effective and personalized solutions for managing your pain and restoring your quality of life.

Understanding Herniated Discs:

A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc or disc bulge, occurs when the soft inner portion of a spinal disc pushes through the tough outer layer. This can lead to irritation or compression of nearby nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the affected area.

Causes and Risk Factors:

Several factors can contribute to the development of a herniated disc, including:

  • Age: As we age, the discs in our spine lose water content, making them less flexible and more prone to damage.
  • Wear and Tear: Repetitive movements or activities that put excessive strain on the spine can lead to disc degeneration and herniation.
  • Trauma or Injury: A sudden impact, such as a fall or car accident, can cause a disc to herniate.
  • Genetics: Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to developing herniated discs.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts additional pressure on the discs, increasing the risk of herniation.

Symptoms of Herniated Discs:

The symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location and severity of the herniation. Common symptoms include:

  • Back Pain: Intense, sharp, or throbbing pain in the lower back or neck.
  • Radicular Pain: Pain that radiates down the legs (sciatica) or arms, following the path of the affected nerve.
  • Numbness and Tingling: Sensations of pins and needles in the legs, feet, arms, or hands.
  • Muscle Weakness: Weakness or difficulty moving the affected limbs.
  • Loss of Reflexes: Decreased or absent reflexes in the affected area.
