Do you have a herniated disc? Of course the best way is to see a pain doctor that specializes in spine pain. A herniated disc is often the result of a traumatic accident. If you’ve been injured at work after doing some heavy lifting or have recently been injured in a moving vehicle accident you may be suffering from a herniated disc (Bulging disk, Compressed disk, Herniated intervertebral disk, Herniated nucleus pulposus, Prolapsed disk, Ruptured disk, Slipped disk). Dr. Monfett of Skyline PMR in NYC has treated many patients with spine and sports-related injuries successfully. Back pain is not something you have to live with.
Back pain can be a debilitating experience. Simple processes like driving, sitting, working, even laying down can become painful. Addressing a herniated disc doesn’t have to be complicated or require surgery. You can have a better back and a better body through treatments offered by Skyline Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City. Regain energy and vitality.
Basic disc movement can cause misalignment of the spine. Your spine (back bone) is made up of 26 bones called vertebrae. In between them are soft disks filled with a jelly-like substance. These disks cushion the vertebrae and keep them in place.
As you age, the disks break down or degenerate. As they do, they lose their cushioning ability adding painful pressure on the nerves. This can lead to pain if the back is stressed from accident or injury.
A herniated disk is a disk that ruptures causing the jelly-like center of the disk to leak, irritating the nerves resulting in sciatica or back pain.
