What is a Herniated Disc?

Herniated Disc Illustration

A herniated disc can happen to anyone, especially as a person ages. Your spine is comprised of bones with a soft, gel-like substance connecting each. This connective disc absorbs shock and keeps the bones from rubbing together while allowing the spine to bend, twist or flex. As you age, your discs can dry out which causes structural damage. If you incur an injury to the spine and the disc ruptures, the gel can be pushed out.

When the disc is damaged or ruptured, it may result in back pain. Your orthopedic spine doctor at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics in Southlake can properly diagnose your back pain to determine if you have a herniated disc.

Other causes of back pain could be:

Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

Back pain is a frequent symptom of a herniated disc. Depending on the location of the herniated disc, the back pain may radiate into the neck area or it may move down into the leg area. Our spine specialist, Dr. Kevin James, has the experience to properly diagnose and treat back pain associated with a herniated disc. If you are experiencing a loss of bladder and/or bowel control, Dr. James recommends you seek immediate medical attention.

“Care And Service Was Legendary!”

5 Star Rating

I was diagnosed with a fractured-shattered-herniated disc in L4-5 and S1 and remember being a little anxious at my first appointment, but that didn’t last long. Dr. James and his staff were very attentive and made me and my family feel comfortable and at ease. Always professional, cheerful, and responsive to any questions or concerns we had, they exceeded our expectations on every visit.

My quality of life has greatly improved to the point that I am returning to work and my routine activities. I know I wouldn’t be where I am right now if it weren’t for Dr. James and his staff. They took amazing care of me and my family. I would recommend this practice to anyone. The care and service was legendary!
