Dr. Liu explains the “Truth vs. Fiction” behind slipped or herniated discs...
Common symptoms of a herniated disc include pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness in the extremities. There may also be some local pain where the disc herniated if the discs nerves become irritated. Symptoms will vary in strength depending on where the disc has herniated and how advanced the herniation is, being anywhere from mild to severe in nature.
It is essential to be diagnosed early to stop the progression of your herniated disc. An accurate diagnosis is also key to successful herniated disc treatment.
