Diagnosing & treating a herniated disc
Do you suffer with low back pain with referral down the back of the leg? Are you concerned that perhaps you may have a herniated disc but are not sure? In this short video, I'll explain what the symptoms of a herniated disc are and how you can tell whether you have one or not. Herniated discs, or slipped discs as they're more commonly known are not actually that common. They occur when the disc soft material starts to bulge through the outer layer of the disc between the intervertebral bodies.
The characteristics of a slipped disc, or a herniated disc are often traumatic. That means they follow a period or an event of excessive compressive force. So maybe a fall from a ladder, maybe a fall from a bicycle, sometimes slipping on ice and landing on your bottom causes traumatic compression, or excessive compression through the spine the disc gets squashed excessively and then the soft material inside the disc starts to bulge through the side. Or in severe cases the disc bursts and the disc material comes out. What happens then is the material expands and the disc bulge takes up space and it presses on the nerve root at the level that the disc occurs. It causes inflammation, irritation and pain.
If you're experiencing pain down the back of the leg and it's not been traumatic in origin then it’s more likely to be muscular. It could be a condition called piriformis syndrome. So, the important thing to do if you're getting low back pain with some referral down the back of the leg or into the buttocks to get it diagnosed. The secret to good treatment is always diagnosis so my advice would be to go to the Iphysio website, that's www.iphysio.io Complete the online questionnaire and get the condition diagnosed. The clever computer technology will take the information you provide and if you've got a disc herniation, or any other condition with lower back pain associated with it, the clever system will be able to diagnose it for you. Depending on your condition you will be able to download the appropriate treatment plan for it. So here I've got the e-book for disc herniation but if it's muscular in origin you'll be able to download something like this; so here is the e-book on piriformis syndrome which presents in a very similar way to a herniated disc.
You get the same low back pain with referral down the leg but it's muscular it's not a disc problem. So, get the condition diagnosed and you can download the appropriate eBook and it will tell you everything you need to know about how to manage the pain, how to rehabilitate your condition and how to treat it yourself at home. So, good luck with this and stay well and if you found this video useful please like and share and consider subscribing to our channel for more videos like this in the future.
