Utah Physical Medicine for Your Herniated Disc Pain
There are many terms used to describe spinal disc pathology and associated pain, such as "herniated disc," "pinched nerve," and "bulging disc," and all are used differently and, at times, interchangeably.
There are actually two types of general spinal disc problems, pinched nerve and disc pain.
Pinched nerve. When a patient has a symptomatic herniated disc, the disc itself is not painful, but rather the material that is leaking out of the inside of the disc is pinching or irritating a nearby nerve.
Disc pain. When a patient has a symptomatic degenerated disc (one that causes low back pain and/or leg pain), it is the disc space itself that is painful and the source of pain.
If you have herniated disc pain, give us a call. Our Utah physical medicine clinics offer non-surgical options for relief of herniated disc pain.
If you’ve explored other healthcare solutions (such as surgery, medication, or regular chiropractic care) for your chronic degenerative health condition and haven’t seen any success, Interventional Spine & Pain Management has the pain doctors you need to see.
