Most people know disc extrusion as herniated or ruptured disc. Intervertebral discs are shock absorbers that can deteriorate or become damaged. Normal aging and injury can cause the condition that often results in severe pain that may radiate to other areas of the body and limit the ability to perform routine activities of daily life.
Common symptoms of disc extrusion include: radiating pain, stiffness and soreness, tingling, burning and numbness. Lumin PainCARE specialists can determine if you have disc extrusion by using advanced imaging techniques. They will begin your treatment with conservative approaches such as moist heat or cold packs, over-the-counter medications and targeted low-impact exercise. If these treatments don’t provide the desired results, minimally invasive surgery may be the recommended intervention.
