What Is A Lumbar Herniated Disc?
Lumbar Herniated Disc, also known as a slipped disc or ruptured disc, is a condition in which the spinal disc begins to protrude into the spinal canal. This protrusion of the disc can irritate the surrounding nerve roots of the spine and cause localized or radiating pain.
Many patients will show visible disc herniations on an MRI but never experience pain or symptoms and others will experience chronic symptoms that include:
- Lower back pain
- Muscle spasms
- Numbness or tingling the legs
