Herniation of the Lumbar and Cervical Spine Discs
Involves a tear in the outer fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc which allows the soft, central portion called the nucleuspulposus to bulge out and impinge a nerve root. The tear in the disc ring may result in the release of inflammatory chemical immediators which may directly cause severe pain, in of the absence of nerve root compression.
Disc herniations commonly result from jobs that require constant sitting and squatting, jobs that require lifting, bending and various other activities. A disc protrusion, in contrast to a herniation, does not allow any of the nucleuspulposus to escape beyond the outer layers.
Prompt examination and evaluation of a Herniated Disc is imperative. The victim of a Spine Injury needs fast assessment and treatment to minimize the effects of such an injury.
