Not all disc problems require surgery. And, all disc problems could benefit from treatment or care. Disc pain can be acute and very painful or it can be a problem that you fear acting up with just the wrong move. Either way, discs are rich with pain sensors and even small disc problems can create a fair amount of discomfort.
These spinal shock absorbers can bulge or rupture and affect the nerves that cause pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms or legs. On occasion, they even cause problems to the bowel, bladder and sexual organs.
Disc problems are taken seriously, as are all spinal conditions, and a thorough evaluation will determine the best care.
