Spinal disc herniation is a serious disease caused by undernourishment of an intervertebral disc, which provokes tear and release of its contents into the spinal canal.
This results in backaches, inflammatory processes and nerve root compression.
Spinal disc herniation may occur as a result of degenerative-dystrophic changes of the spine, spinal traumas, physical overload or age-related changes.
SYMPTOMS OF SPINAL DISC HERNIATION
Spinal disc herniation usually reveals itself through back pain. The location of pain depends on the location of herniation: if the herniated disc is in the lumbar region, the pain will be focused in the lower part of the back and extend to the leg.
