In case of a herniated disc, the fibrous ring breaks and a small part of the nucleus pulposus is pushed outwards compressing the spinal cord or nerve root. So there is pain in the back, which, depending on the location of the hernia may irradiate into a leg (hernia in the lumbar spine) or an arm (hernia in the cervical spine).
!However, it should be remembered that in some cases, a herniated disc can become a serious problem in case of delayed treatment, and may cause irreversible damage to the nervous structures, which can lead to weakness in the limbs, disruption of the pelvic organs and even paralysis.
The presence of hernia does not mean that it needs treatment or surgical intervention, since it does not necessarily compress the nerve root, and if it compresses, it is not always enough to cause serious complaints.
If the herniated disc causes pain, in 80-90% of cases, the pain will be over within 3-4 weeks even without treatment. The only thing in such cases which might be necessary this is a temporary decrease in physical activity and intake of painkillers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants.
