Disc Herniation Treatment in Iselin, NJ: A herniated or bulging disc is one of the most common forms of spinal injury. Many people who suffer from herniated discs do not even know that anything is wrong until the condition impinges on a nerve in the spinal column and starts causing pain. Depending upon the location and severity of the injury, it can cause excruciating pain, loss of motion and many additional adverse effects.
Symptoms of disc herniation include back pain, neck pain, leg pain, art pain, stiffness or tenderness of the spine.
Common Causes of Disc Herniation
Disc herniation is most often caused by the gradual, aging-related wear and tear referred to as disc degeneration. When a person ages, their spinal discs loes some of their water content making them less flexible and more prone to rupturing or tearing. Although rare, disc herniation can also be caused by a traumatic event such as a fall or blow to the back.
