Lumbar Herniated Disc Pain

What is Lumbar Herniated Disc?

There is a fibrous shock absorbing pad in-between each vertebra and end plates which holds the discs in place.  Lumbar herniated disc pain is where the discs push into the spinal canal or against the nerves causing pain.
 
Symptoms
  • Patients usually suffer from a combination of sharp pain, cramping, muscle spasms and occasionally sciatica or leg weakness
Cause
  • Common causes include vertebrate discs pushing the nerves or the spinal canal
  • Herniated discs can also cause the same condition
  • Sharp pain if there is movement in back
  • Cough or sneeze can cause pain in the back (lumbar)
Treatment
  • Pain medication is frequently used to control the pain associated with the condition
  • Electrical stimulation through the use of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is also occasionally used where small electrical currents are introduced to nerve areas affected
  • Hot or cold gel packs are known to alleviate many types of back pain
  • A supportive back brace that correct posture and support the lumbar area can provide comfort and relief
  • Hydrotherapy where exercises are conducted in swimming pool has been known to offer relief to symptoms
Prevention
