A 'slipped' (prolapsed) disc often causes sudden, severe lower back pain. The disc often presses on a nerve root which can cause pain and other symptoms in a leg. In most cases, the symptoms ease off gradually over several weeks. The usual advice is to carry on as normal as much as possible. Painkillers may help. Physical treatments such as spinal manipulation may also help. Surgery may be an option if the symptoms persist.

Cervical disc disease is a group of cervical disc disorders that include cervical herniated nucleus pulposus, cervical degenerative disc disease, and cervical internal disc disruption. A diagnosis is based on a medical history and a physical examination, as well as the symptoms and the circumstances where the pain started. Magnetic resonance imaging can show damage to discs, but it alone cannot confirm degenerative disc disease.

You need to post your mri images. If there is compression of nerve, you need a decompression procedure of some sort. If you are put on a rehab, follow strictly the protocol and find improvement in 6 weeks and further down the line. Thanks.

Hello doctor, My husband have problem of bulging disc. L4 l5 and l5 s1. I want to know can it interfere with the sexual intercourse. Should we do intercourse or not?

Bulging discs occur when pressure on a spinal disc damages or breaks down the once healthy disc, causing it to compress or change its normal shape. This can in turn put pressure on spinal nerves, causing pain and inflammation let's discuss you concern in detail so that we can provide with the best possible medical plan.

Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion of the disc to protrude through the outer ring. This is known as a slipped, herniated, or prolapsed disc. This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disc compresses one of your spinal nerves, you may also experience numbness and pain along the affected nerve let's discuss you concern in detail so that we can provide with the best possible medical plan.
