Herniated Disc Relief

Disc herniation is when the soft, cushiony inner material (a.k.a. nucleus pulposus) of the spine’s disc bulges or protrudes out through a more rigid outer layer (a.k.a. annulus fibrosus). A herniated disc can result in various intensities of discomfort or pain – depending on the severity and the location of the herniation. If you face pain/discomfort and seek herniated disc relief, contact Dr. Kyle Roesler at the Back & Neck Care Center of Olivette for treatment options related to a herniated disc.

A herniated disc can happen for a number of reasons which include –

  • Age-related degeneration
  • Wear and tear
  • Sudden trauma or injury
  • Genetics
  • Smoking due to reduced blood flow
  • Obesity due to excess stress
  • Occupational risk factors

Herniated Disc Symptoms

The common or typical herniated disc symptoms may include one or more of the following -

Back, Neck, or Limb Pain

A herniated disc can generate radiating pain. For example, a herniated disc in the lower back may radiate pain through the hips and legs, whereas pain/discomfort may radiate down the arms or through the shoulders if the herniation is in the neck.  

Tingling and Numbness

Herniated discs often compress nerves, which can generate a pins and needles sensation, numbness, or tingling.

Muscle Weakness and Tenderness

A herniated disc on a nerve can cause muscle weakness, which makes it challenging to walk and lift objects. 

Worsen Symptoms with Movement

A herniated disc can be aggravated by moving or bending, as this can cause an increase in nerve pressure and, thus, pain.  

Changes to One’s Reflexes

In certain instances, a herniated disc may change your reflexes.
