One of the most common causes of back pain for American adults is a herniated disc. Repeated bending or torsion of the spine can cause the cushioned discs between the vertebrae to bulge out from between the individual vertebrae. This is called a herniation or a herniated disc. The condition causes increased pressure on related nerves, resulting in pain and inflammation in the back and radiated pain in other areas. Sufferers can also experience numbness or tingling and weakness in the legs and loss of bladder or bowel control.
Herniated disc treatment often calls for rest, physical therapy, stretching exercises, hot and cold therapy, NSAIDs, joint injections, spinal decompression and pain relief interventions until complete healing is achieved. This can take time to achieve, and until symptoms like pain and numbness subside, the medical team at Full Range Spine & Ortho provides interventional pain management in Los Angeles to offer pain relief.
