Personalized Herniated Disc Treatments

Our Houston Car Accident Doctors Are Ready to Help

A herniated disc – also referred to as a slipped disc or ruptured disc – can occur in any part of the spine. In most cases, it occurs in the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine (lower back), often resulting in a pinched nerve that causes pain or numbness.

If you are suffering any pain or numbness in your neck, lower back, arm, or leg, you could be experiencing a herniated disc. Our Houston car accident doctors at Qualcare Rehabilitation can make an adequate diagnosis of your pain and use safe, non-surgical procedures to alleviate the excruciating pain derived from your herniated disc.

How Herniated Discs Occur

Disc are soft, rubbery pads between the vertebrae that comprise the spinal column. Made of a thick outer ring of cartilage (annulus) and an inner gel-like substance (nucleus), these discs enable the back to bend and absorb shock.

When the cartilage develops a defect or tear, however, the nucleus can break through and bulges out, putting pressure on the nerves. Whether major or minor, any type of pressure can cause pain or numbness.

Symptoms of a herniated disc include the following:

  • Pain in both legs
  • Pain when bending forward or twisting your back
  • Burning, tingling, or numbness in the leg, foot, or buttock
  • Weakness in one or both legs
  • Intensified pain after prolonged bending, sitting, coughing, or sneezing
