Back Pain caused by Disc Herniation
Our discs are made of a tough, fibrous out layer (annular fibrosis) and an inner jelly like nucleus (nucleus pulposes). The discs are designed to absorb shock so the bones of our spine don’t clunk together and allow for movement of the spine. When we age, the inner nucleus can dry out and allow the disc to become brittle and easier to tear or injure.
One of the most common causes of chronic low back pain is pressure being put on the lumbar nerve roots due to disc herniation. The severity of the disc bulge varies person to person and can come with a series of different sensations.
- Local back pain
- Sciatic pain down one or both legs
- Numbness, tingling or weakness in the hip, groin or leg
- Burning in back, hip, groin, knee or foot
