Herniated Discs And Sciatica
Disc injuries may occur from a variety of causes including lifting injuries, repetitive motions and motor vehicle accidents. There are a number of medical terms to describe different disc problems, e.g., disc bulge, disc herniation, disc prolapse and disc extrusion. Disc bulges and disc herniations are most commonly seen and can result in the irritation or compression of spinal nerves. Patients with these conditions may experience pain and/or numbness and tingling down the arms or legs(called sciatica).
