Herniated Disc Treatment
What Is a Herniated Disc?
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. Dr. James at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics in Southlake can properly diagnose your back pain to determine if you have a herniated disc.
