Herniated disc injuries can occur in a wide range of circumstances. A worker might slip a disc when attempting to lift something that is too heavy or without proper assistance. A motorist may suffer a herniated disc injury as a result of a car accident. A store customer might slip on ice while crossing a poorly maintained parking lot, causing a disc to bulge.
The circumstances vary, but the consequences can be rather consistent. A herniated disc injury may cause someone’s back to spasm or become stiff. In severe cases, the injured person may experience shooting pains and numbness in the arms. Sometimes a herniated disc injury will improve with simple treatments, such as medication or injection therapy. In many cases though, the injured person will have to undergo back or neck surgery to repair the herniated disc.
