Herniated Disc

Herniated Disc Torrance, Southbay, Westside

Pacific Pain & Wellness Group specializes in the non-invasive treatment of herniated disc, a painful experience that is usually defined as excruciating pain that starts in the lower back and radiates all the way down the leg. It is a prevalent source of neck, arm, back, and leg pain. It can result from an old back injury on the job or it can be an old sports injury where one of the discs in the lower back is ruptured. Also referred to as ruptured or slipped disc, a herniated disc can occur anywhere in the spine.

Symptoms of Herniated Disc

Pain from a herniated disc may be worse during activity and then get better during rest. Anything that puts pressure on the nerve, such as coughing sneezing, sitting or bending forward, can cause pain to worsen. If the damaged disc does not touch any nerves, patients may not experience any pain from this condition.

  • Pain in the affected area that radiates down the buttock, leg, foot (depending on affected nerve)
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Worse pain when coughing, sneezing sitting or bending

Herniated Disc Diagnosis
