About Herniated Disc Injuries

The spinal column is comprised of vertebrae (bones) that are stacked upon each other. From the bottom of the spine to the top, the column includes five vertebrae in the lumbar spine (low back), twelve vertebrae in the thoracic spine (mid back), and seven vertebrae in the cervical spine (neck).

Each vertebra is cushioned by a disc which protects the bone by acting as a shock absorber. Each disc is comprised of a tough outer ring and a softer, gelatinous inner portion.

If you are involved in a car accident or sustain another type of personal injury event such as a slip or fall, the inner portion of the impacted disc can protrude through the outer ring. This is commonly referred to as a herniated disc or disc protrusion.

A herniated disc can be a very serious injury. Symptoms often include pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling. Epidural steroid injections often can provide relief, but surgery is often necessary if the herniated disc compresses a nerve or otherwise causes extreme pain and discomfort.

Herniated discs are formally diagnosed upon review of imaging studies of the spine such as a CT scan, X-Ray, MRI, or discogram. Physical examination, however, can also indicate the possible presence of a herniated disc.

Neck pain often radiates to the shoulders, arms, hands, or fingers (radiculopathy). A positive finding on the Spurling test is indicative of cervical radiculopathy and potential herniated disc. Low back pain often radiates to the hips, legs, or feet. A positive finding on the Straight Leg Raise test is indicative of lumbar radiculopathy and potential herniated disc.

Discectomy is often used to reduce radiating pain from a herniated disc injury when there is readily apparent nerve compression. Usually just a fragment of the disc is removed during this procedure.

Spinal fusion is another common surgical procedure to treat herniated disc injuries. In this procedure two or more vertebrae in the spine are permanently connected and/or fused to enhance stability or decrease pain. It is often used to stabilize the spine when a herniated disc is removed. Rods, screws, and/or metal plates might need to be used to connect the vertebrae together. Artificial disc replacement surgery can be an alternative to spinal fusion.
