If you are experiencing pain or numbness in the neck, arm, lower back, or leg, you could be suffering from a herniated disc.
Dr James Grant uses modern procedures to accurately diagnose your pain caused by your herniated disc.

What Causes Herniated Disc?
When we are young, our discs have a high water content, almost 80 percent.
As we age, the water content decreases, causing the discs to become less flexible and more vulnerable to wear and tear.
Conditions that can further weaken or damage your discs include:

  • Heavy or incorrect lifting
  • Repetitive twisting movements
  • High impact athletic activities
  • Smoking
  • Excessive body weight
  • Traumatic injury

How does Herniated occur?
The human backbone, consists of 26 bones called vertebrae. Between each vertebrae lie cushion-like pads
called “disks.” These disks help keep the vertebrae in place and act as shock absorbers.
A herniated disk occurs when some of the soft interior slips out through a crack in the disk’s wall.
This directly irritate nerves in the surrounding area and cause significant pain.

Treatment or Surgery?
Treatment of a herniated disc is complicated because it’s symptoms and pain differ for each patient.
A treatment option that relieves pain and discomfort for one patient may not work for another.
It’s important to see your doctor if you’ve had constant or increasing pain for more than 4 to 6 weeks.
Getting help early on can lower your chance of having lasting problems and surgery
