Herniated disc injuries can be painful and permanent injuries. Herniated disc injuries can lead to life long pain, impairment, and substantial medical expenses. Disc injuries are commonly caused by car accidents, falls, and other trauma to the back and neck

Herniated discs are commonly referred to as herniated discs, bulged discs, slipped discs, ruptured discs, and disc protrusions. Unlike most soft tissue injuries, herniated discs can be seen on MRI’s and easily diagnosed by competent doctors. They can be treated by physical therapy, injections, and ultimately removal and fusion of the vertebrae. This can be very painful and expensive surgery, and often the pain does not go away after the surgery.

Herniated disc injuries can lead to life long pain, impairment, and substantial medical expenses.

In addition to the pain, herniated disc can cause loss of sensation and numbness when they bulge and press against your nerves. They can cause Sciatica — pain along the large sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg — is a relatively common form of back pain. Sciatica is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated disc (also referred to as a ruptured disc, pinched nerve, slipped disk, etc.). The problem is often diagnosed as a "radiculopathy," meaning that a disc has protruded from its normal position in the vertebral column and is putting pressure on the radicular nerve (nerve root).

For some people, the pain from sciatica can be severe and debilitating. For others, the pain might be infrequent and irritating, but has the potential to get worse. Usually, sciatica only affects one side of the lower body, and the pain often radiates from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through the leg. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also radiate to the foot or toes.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make sure you see a doctor and have them diagnosed.
