About Your Care and Condition
You’re not alone in the pain or numbing sensation your herniated disc is causing. Our care team of spine experts have devoted their careers to the causes of, and cures for, painful conditions just like yours. As we plan your treatment, we collaborate with rehab specialists to alleviate your pain and improve daily function.
A herniated disc is when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes outward through the tough exterior. It presses on nerve endings causing pain and even weakness of arms and legs. Those ages 35 to 45 are more likely to experience a herniated disc. Most won't need surgery. Recovery and treatment are based on the location and severity of your herniated disc.
