The neck and lower back are common places for patients’ to experience pain, and sometimes even injury to vertebral discs.
The stronger/fibrous outer layers of the disc can occasionally, as a result of trauma or overuse, be torn or even rupture leading to the protruding of the softer/gelatinous interior of the vertebral disc. This is a very serious condition that can cause symptoms in the arms or legs of patients, including radiating, shooting pain, numbness, tingling or weakness. These conditions need proper evaluation and treatment to ensure the best long term outcome, and least chance of progression of the symptoms. At Remedy we can assess patient’s symptoms and treat the condition appropriately.
