Is a Herniated Disc Causing You Trouble?
A herniated disc is every bit as painful as it sounds. While there are a variety of ways to treat this injury, you won’t find the relief you’re seeking until you take the appropriate action.
If you suspect a herniated disc, it’s critical to receive an immediate and accurate diagnosis. Not only does this put your mind at ease, but it can also protect you against additional pain and suffering.
Recently, we consulted with a patient who had been living with a herniated disc for more than three years. As a result, severe leg and back pain hampered his life, making it difficult to do the things he loved.
After a thorough review of his medical records and the ordering of another MRI, it was clear that minimally invasive surgery was the right way to approach his injury.
Here’s what he had to say about his experience:
Dr. Sharma diagnosed a herniated disc at my L3/L4 that had been giving me severe leg problems for approximately three years. An orthopedic surgeon had previously diagnosed the problem as degenerative disc disease even after reviewing my MRI clearly showing the herniated disc. Dr. Sharma performed minimally evasive surgery and fully corrected the problem.
Don’t expect your herniated disc to heal itself. You need to take action if you want to put your pain and suffering in the past. There are plenty of treatment options available, so don’t wait.
