A condition that can affect the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine is degenerative disc disease is sometimes called a herniated, slipped or ruptured disc. Here at StartNew Medical, we are able to treat this condition with non-invasive therapies that provide optimal results for our patients. A herniated or ruptured disc is the term for when some of the soft, jelly-like center of a spinal disc pushes out through a fissure in the exterior of the disc. Disc herniation doesn’t always cause a problem, but for some people it results in intense pain, numbness or tingling, sciatica, or muscle weakness. This can be effectively treated by StartNew Medical with physical therapy, in cases of more severe disc herniation’s, interventional procedures, as well as conservative treatments, can be combined for better outcomes.
Degenerative disc disease, or age-related disc degeneration is often the cause of disc herniation, though it’s often difficult to identify the cause of a herniated disc. It can be the result of the trauma of a fall or blow to the back, or even something as simple as improper lifting or bending; overweight or middle-aged patients and patients who have physically demanding jobs are at higher risk for disc degeneration.
