What causes a Herniated Disc?

Herniated discs are common and can be caused by bending and twisting lower back while lifting heavy objects, hard falls, direct impact-physical assault, car accident, sports injuries and age. As we age, discs become dry and brittle, leaving them more susceptible to tearing, cracks and injury.

What are Herniated Disc symptoms?

Symptoms of a herniated disc vary depending on the location in the spine of the affected disc.

Common symptoms of a lumbar disc herniation include:

  • Low back pain
  • Pain, weakness of numbing of the buttocks or leg (sciatica)
  • Tingling and numbness of the leg and foot

Common symptoms of a cervical disc herniation include:

  • Neck pain
  • Weakness or numbing of the shoulders and/or arms
  • Tingling of the arm
