Does a Disc Bulge or Herniation Always Hurt?

The pain of a disc problem comes from three things: swelling in the disc, compression on the nerve, and chemical irritation of the nerve. You can have one of these or any combination of the three. Sometimes the surrounding muscles and joints become involved, also adding to the discomfort. Patients with disc problems usually have leg, hip, or pelvic pain. Often there is back pain, but not necessarily. In severe cases, the leg will lose some feeling or strength. All symptoms must be watched closely during your course of treatment. Carefully answer questions that your doctor asks about your symptoms. If your problem ultimately requires surgery, we will refer you for neurosurgical examination. Some of the top neurosurgeons in the country practice in Memphis, and we work together with them to ensure that you get the best available care.
