Slipped Disc Symptoms

Slipped disc symptoms from the lower back include back pain and radiating pain. The radiating pain may run along the back of the buttocks and thigh, or it may travel into the foot. The symptoms of a slipped lumbar disc are like those attributed to sciatica. Numbness, weakness, or tingling in the leg are often present when the disc involvement is in the lumbosacral region.

Slipped disc symptoms from other areas of involvement can include numbness and pain in the chest area from the thoracic spinal region, or pain in the arm, hand, neck, or shoulder when the cervical spine is involved. Muscle spasms may accompany a slipped disc, but will not cause a slipped disc. The symptoms manifest when the gel inside the disc escapes and allows pressure on the spinal cord or nerve endings.

Causes of Slipped Disc Symptoms
The most common event precipitating a slipped disc is bending forward and lifting something. This action puts strain on the back while the vertebrae are open, making it easier for the disc to "slip" or "herniate." Other causes may include the way one sits, stands, or moves. If the symptoms of a slipped disc don't subside, or if they increase with conservative treatment, surgical intervention may be necessary to obtain relief. Once the slipped disc symptoms are resolved, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with appropriate exercise to avoid future episodes of disc disease.

Once the slipped disc symptoms are resolved, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with appropriate exercise to avoid future episodes of disc disease.
