Herniated Disc

Herniated discs can lead to pain, numbness, weakness, muscle spasms, and difficulty walking. They are usually treated with pain medication, physical therapy, or outpatient surgery.

Comprehensive Diagnosis & Treatment of Herniated Discs

Also known as slipped discs, herniated discs are a common condition that typically affect patients between ages 20 and 50. Most cases resolve without treatment. Some herniated discs can result in extreme pain, numbness, weakness, muscle spasms, difficulty walking, and even a rare and serious condition known as Cauda Equine Syndrome, which affects bladder function.

Treatment Options

In most cases, surgery is not necessary to treat a herniated disc. Patients often find relief with functional and regenerative medical treatments, pain management or physical therapy to improve the strength and flexibility in the back, torso, and limbs.

In the rare case that surgery is required, the standard operation isĀ microdiscectomy, a minimally invasive surgery that can be done on an outpatient basis.

PATIENT STORY

My back feels better than it has in a long time. I am even back to softball and fishing with very little pain. I'm thankful to Dr. Biscup for helping to improve my quality of life.
