Lumbar Herniated Disc
What Does a Herniated Disc in the Lumbar Mean?
A herniated disc, also referred to as a bulging, ruptured or slipped disc, is one that protrudes into the spinal canal and applies pressure to a nerve root. A herniated lumbar disc can cause pain in the back and all the way down the legs and feet. About 90% of herniated discs occur in the lumbar spine.
Available Treatment Options:
Treatment for a herniated disc includes anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy and steroid injections. Surgery is usually not required. When surgery is indicated it can usually be done through a minimally-invasive approach.
