What is disc herniation?

Disc herniation is a condition in which the nucleus pulposus of the spinal disc escapes from its normal position in the fibrous ring, pressing on the spinal canal or nerve roots, causing pain and numbness in the spine.

Any segment of the spine can have a herniated disc, but the most common are lumbar disc herniation and cervical disc herniation, because these locations are most affected by daily living habits.

Signs of disc herniation

* Cervical disc herniation :

  • Pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and arms, spreading to the shoulder blades, numbness in the thumb and wrist.
  • Neck pain increases when turning the neck, stretching the neck, sneezing, coughing, working a lot or driving.
  • Patients may experience headaches, dizziness, and lightheadedness.
  • Arm movements are less flexible due to loss of strength, weakness of arm muscles, and difficulty grasping objects.

* Lumbar disc herniation:

  • Sudden and severe low back pain
  • Dull pain spreading in the lumbar region, sharp pain intermittently.
  • Movement is inconvenient, difficulty arching the back or bending low.
  • Low back pain is accompanied by sciatica, the pain spreads in an arc to the front of the chest, along the intercostal space.
  • Numbness or weakness in both limbs. The big toe is difficult to flex and extend, and the feeling of numbness is evident in the instep and buttocks.
  • Pain increases when sitting, lying on your side, coughing, sneezing, defecating, and vigorous exercise
  • Patients tend to stand crooked on one side.

Complications of disc herniation

  • Widespread pain: Severe pain can spread along the spine to the entire back, then to the buttocks, thighs and legs, causing these parts to become weak and less flexible.
  • Autonomic nervous system disorder syndrome: The most obvious manifestations of this syndrome are dizziness, tinnitus, loss of balance, sometimes pain in the eye socket, feeling of intermittent blurred vision, and sweating.
  • Compression of the brachial plexus: From symptoms of shoulder and neck pain, muscle contraction will spread to one or both arms, pain accompanied by numbness or atrophy of the arm muscles.
  • Disorders of bladder or bowel function, urinary and fecal incontinence.
  • Spinal stenosis: Symptoms can range from mild to severe such as severe pain in the cervical vertebrae, pain or numbness in the shoulders, shoulder blades, and arms, sometimes causing muscle weakness. Symptoms are similar to sciatica.
  • Lifelong disability: In the case of a herniated disc compressing the cervical spinal cord, the patient may be disabled for life due to paralysis.
