Herniated Disc Treatment in Opelousas, Louisiana

Unexplained Back Pain?

Do you have back pain that is radiating to your legs? Do you feel numbness or tingling in your arm or sharp pain in your neck? Have you recently moved large boxes or other objects? If you have unexplained back or neck pain, you may have a herniated disc.
 

Know Your Symptoms

As you age, your risk for a herniated or ruptured disc increases. A disc may rupture if you twist or turn to lift something or if you bend to carry a heavy load incorrectly. Symptoms of a herniated disc in the lower back include radiating pain from your back down into the legs, similar to sciatica. They also include a burning sensation in your back and legs and numbness or tingling. If you have a ruptured disc in your neck, you may feel that same numbness, tingling, or radiating pain through your neck, shoulders, and arms.
