Lumbar Disc Herniation

Lumbar Disc Herniation

Lumbar disc herniations are a common injury that can occur as a result of a personal injury or car accident. The lumbar spine, or lower back, is made up of intervertebral discs that cushion and separate the vertebrae. A herniated disc occurs when the inner, gel-like substance of the disc bulges or ruptures through the outer ring, putting pressure on the surrounding nerves. This can cause severe pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower extremities.

In some cases, a herniated disc can also cause radiating pain and discomfort in the buttocks and thighs. The risks associated with a lumbar disc herniation include chronic pain, nerve damage, and potential disability. Treatment options can include physical therapy, medication, and in some cases, surgery.
