What is a herniated disc?
The discs in your spinal column provide cushioning between the vertebrae that make up your spine. A herniated disc, also called a ruptured disc or slipped disc, occurs when some of the cushioning material within a disc pushes out through a crack in the discs’ exterior. It can arise from several problems, including nerve irritation that can cause numbness and pain, or weaknesses in a leg or arm. Surgery should always be a last resort.
Symptoms of a herniated disc
- Weakness – Without herniated disc treatment, Vancouver, WA citizens can suffer from weakened muscles. Nerves attached to affected muscles may lose density and strength. It can impair walking, lifting, and holding.
- Tingling and Numbness – Tingling and numbness may occur in the body part of the affected nerve control. For example, if a herniated disk is pushing on nerves connected to a hand, pain may present in the fingers.
- Leg or Arm Pain – When a herniated disc occurs in the lower back, intense pain can present in the calf, thigh, and buttocks. Pain can also occur in portions of the foot. When a disc herniation occurs in the neck, the pain will focus on the arms and shoulders. Sneezing or specific movements can exacerbate this, causing pain in your legs and arms.
