Disc Protrusion

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.

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 most frequent symptoms of intervertebral hernia in the lumbar spine:

  • Pain (sometimes tingling and numbness), starting from the buttocks and extending down the back or side surface of the legs below the knee;
  • Pain in a leg that often occurs after a few days / weeks / months after the start of pain in the lower back;
  • Sometimes pain in the leg starts immediately without back pain;
  • Pain intensifies when you sit, cough or sneeze, or when you try to bend forward;
  • Pain in the lower back / leg that occurs when you try to turn over to the other side while sleeping.

Symptoms that indicate the seriousness of the nerve root lesion:

  • weakness in the leg (usually in the foot and knee);
  • urination abnormality (urinary retention, urinary incontinence);
  • bowel movements control disorder;
  • numbness in the crotch;
  • sensitivity disorder in the feet;
  • gait abnormality (in severe cases - paralysis).

Risk factors include:

Smoking. Smoking increases the risk of herniated discs due to reduced oxygen levels in the blood, depriving tissues of the body of vital nutrients.

Age. Intervertebral hernia is most common in middle age (35 - 45 years) as a result of aging and degeneration of discs. However, they can appear at any age, even at an early age.

Height. Tall people are also at risk of developing herniated discs problem. These include male height above 180 cm and women - above 170 cm.

Weight. Extra weight causes additional stress on the discs in the lower back. Sometimes it is impossible to get rid of back pain without bringing weight to normal.

Occupations related to the load on the spine. Who has an increased risk of getting herniated discs are: people who do heavy manual labor, athletes and persons employed in the profession that requires prolonged sitting or standing in one position.

The tasks of rehabilitation

  • Selection and training of special physical exercises that improve nutrition of intervertebral discs, strengthen muscles that support the spine;
  • Increasing muscle strength of the affected limb;
  • Improving flexibility of the spine and muscle elasticity;
  • Forming and training correct posture during daily activities, including: transfer of loads, performance of heavy physical work.
