Are you experiencing numbness, tingling or pain throughout the arms, legs, or back? You may be experiencing symptoms caused by a herniated disc. At The Pain Management Center, we specialize in herniated disc treatment, offering these services to residents of Hamilton, Linwood, Turnersville and Voorhees, NJ.
What Are Herniated Discs?
A herniated disc is a condition that occurs when one of the discs between the bones of the spine move out of place or become damaged. These discs are designed to act as cushions to the movement of the spine, enabling you to twist, turn, and lift smoothly and safely. However, injury, strain, or lifting heavy objects can cause one of these discs to take damage or slip out of place. Once you develop a herniated disc, you may experience symptoms like pain, numbness, or tingling. Depending on the location of the herniated disc, these symptoms can occur in the arms, legs, or back.
How Are Herniated Discs Treated?
It is possible for herniated discs to be treated without surgical techniques, providing patients with relief without the extensive recovery period of major surgeries. At The Pain Management Center, we may recommend one of the following treatments for herniated discs:
These treatments can block the nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain, effectively reducing the pain you feel from your herniated disc.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Herniated Disc Treatment?
The results from your herniated disc treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your herniated disc treatment.
