Herniated Disc

You may have heard of a herniated disc, but do you know what it is? A herniated disc occurs when the outer layer of the spinal disc tears and the inner gel-like material leaks out. This can cause pain, weakness, or numbness in the back, legs, or arms. If you are suffering from a herniated disc, treatments available at Lally Chiropractic Clinic in Yakima, WA, can help relieve your symptoms.

Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

The symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location of the herniated disc and the amount of damage. They include the following.

Back Pain

When a disc herniates in the lower back, it is known as a lumbar herniated disc. This can cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

Arm Pain

If the herniated disc is in the neck, it is called a cervical herniated disc. This can cause pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.

Numbness or Tingling

The herniated disc can also compress the nerves around it. This can cause numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs.

Muscle Weakness

If the herniated disc is pressing on the spinal cord or nerves, it can cause muscle weakness in the arms or legs.

Difficulty Walking

The pain from a herniated disc can make it difficult to walk or stand for long periods.

Loss of Bladder or Bowel Control

In rare cases, a herniated disc can compress the nerves that control the bladder or bowel.

Causes of a Herniated Disc

Several things can cause a disc to herniate, including:

  • Age-related wear and tear
  • Injury
  • Obesity
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive motions
  • Smoking
