What is a Herniated Disc? Animation Explains

Herniated Disc

Herniated Disc

A disc herniation is an injury to the cushioning and connective tissue between vertebrae, usually caused by excessive strain or trauma to the spine. It may result in back pain, pain or sensation in different parts of the body. Most herniated discs occur in the lower back, although they can also occur in the neck. Where the pain is felt depends on the location of the herniation in relation to the spine. In most cases a herniated or bulging disc only causes pain to one side of the body.

The pain caused by a herniated or bulging disc is the result of pressure being applied to the surrounding nerve in the spine.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

If the herniated disc is in the lower back, typically the most pain will be felt in the buttocks, thigh and calf. If the herniated disc is in the neck, typically the pain will be felt in the shoulder and arm. Pain is often described as sharp or burning and can be mild to excruciating.

Herniated discs often cause a radiating numbness or tingling to the body part served by the compressed or pinched nerve.

Herniated discs may cause the muscles served by the affected nerves to weaken.

Bulging Disc – Disc Protrusion

A Disc herniation is normally a further development of a previously existing disc protrusion, in which the outermost layers of the annulus fibrosus are still intact, but can bulge when the disc is under pressure.

Herniated and Bulging Disc Treatment

Midwest Spine and Nerve Center has developed an effective spinal rehabilitation program for conditions of the lumbar spine (low back) and cervical spine (neck), with focus on chronic and severe cases. The program consists of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy focused on decompressing the discs to reverse high amounts of pressure built up in the discs to take the pressure off of the nerves. Ancillary care is available in the form of braces, nutrition, home care, orthotics, E-stim, physiotherapy, and spinal manipulation.

If you are experiencing recurrent back pain and you believe you may have a herniated or bulging disc or have already been diagnosed and are looking for a non-surgical treatment option, you should absolutely contact the Midwest Spine & Nerve Center for a consultation.

"I have had lower back pain for years due in part to a fall which caused a partial bulged disc. I also have MS and had relegated myself to being in constant pain. I was using two major pain meds on a constant basis. Midwest Spine & Nerve Center was my last attempt to find relief. Since experiencing the procedures I have completely gone off of the pain meds, improved my balance and an overall improvement in activity. I would highly recommend and endorse the treatment."

- Richard A. Hill Point

Sciatica Patient

"I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my neck from a fall, which left me with tremendous pain in my neck, shoulder, and down my left arm, and into my hand. I hopped on the internet and found Midwest Spine & Nerve Center in Madison. I was skeptical that they could repair discs with non-invasive procedures, I thankfully can say I was wrong. It was not too many sessions in that I knew these guys were really on to something. I couldn’t believe the gains I was making through the use of their equipment. I walked out of that place pain free and had full use again of my arm. This is a first class center, and I can’t recommend it enough to anyone who suffers from neck and back pain."

Healthy Disc

Healthy Disc

An intervertebral disc lies between adjacent vertebrae in the vertebral column. Each disc forms a fibrocartilaginous joint, to allow slight movement of the vertebrae and to function as a shock absorber for the spine.

Bulging Disc

Bulging Disc

A bulging disc is a condition in which the outermost layers of the anulus fibrosus of the intervertebral discs of the spine are intact but bulge when one or more of the discs are under pressure.

Herniated Disc

Herniated Disc

When a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, jellylike center (nucleus) to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings (annulus), the disc is said to be herniated.

The Risks of Opioids |  Herniated Disc Pain Relief

The American College of Physicians strongly advises against the use of opioids to relieve back pain.
