A herniated disc can cause a wide range of symptoms, including not only back pain but leg pain, muscle weakness, sciatica, and tingling or numbness in the extremities. For these reasons, it can be physically debilitating and have a heavy impact on lifestyle. Fortunately, even the worst cases tend to be highly treatable, now more than ever thanks to the advent of cutting-edge, minimally-invasive laser surgery procedures.

Spinal problems occur in a great many individuals at all stages of life; back pain is one of the most common reasons that Americans visit doctors. Many orthopedic issues - particularly arthritis and other joint problems - manifest themselves in the spine. To understand why back pain sometimes needs to be treated with surgery, it helps to understand the underlying factors which cause the majority of routine back problems. Causes of Spinal Problems

In the past, both patients and doctors have been reluctant to turn to surgery to treat back pain. Surgical treatment was once very invasive and entailed a long recovery, causing even patients who needed surgery to avoid seeking treatment. In addition, doctors are often reluctant to recommend traditional back surgery except for the most extreme cases, leaving many people with back pain without treatment.

Problems in the spine are quite prevalent and can have a huge effect on day-to-day life. Common spine conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, bone spurs, and spinal arthritis can cause pain and other problems which rapidly decrease the quality of life. While non-surgical treatments are available, many patients find that these have no effect on their symptoms, and the many failed trials can cause the condition to drag on for months or even years.

Herniated discs are one of the most common causes of back pain and related symptoms. This is because, as the body ages, the discs lose fluid and become naturally more prone to tearing. Although there are steps people can take to reduce their risk of a herniated disc, few other back conditions are associated so strongly with the simple effects of aging. While back pain is unquestionably difficult to deal with, it can be hard to know when to seek treatment for your pain, and when to seek surgery after a diagnosis. Signs of a Herniated Disc

Almost all people experience back pain at one time or another - muscle strain, poor posture, pregnancy, and other temporary issues are common causes. However, some people have back pain which does not go away on its own; in this case, further diagnosis is treatment. Herniated discs are a common cause of chronic back and limb pain. While sometimes a herniated disc can be treated without surgery, many patients require herniated disc surgery to regain their quality of life.

When considering any surgery, patients don't just want to be assured that the surgery is effective - they want to know whether the results will be permanent. In the case of surgery to treat herniated discs, there is only a low chance of repeated herniation after surgery; furthermore, the type of treatment does not affect the chances of another herniation occurring.

In the past, treating back pain with spine surgery could be summed up by this mantra: It gets worse before it gets better. Treatment for routine spine conditions such as herniated discs, stenosis, and bone spurs was invasive and painful, with a long recovery time. Since the introduction of laser spine surgery, however, back patients who need surgery have more options than ever. Most common back conditions can be treated in an outpatient setting, and patients feel better even as the surgery takes place, instead of being in pain for weeks afterwards.
