What is a herniated disc? | Spring Hill Personal Injury Lawyer

A herniated disc is a serious spine injury. In the human spine, we have vertebral bodies which are these bony bodies here with a disc in between that acts as a shock absorber. These discs allow the body to flex and extend and serve a vital function. When the disc is herniated in a wreck or some type of accident, the disc itself will be launched backwards into the XA nerve roots causing a compression of that nerve that results in pain and radicular symptoms of shooting pain or numbness down the arms or legs.

The disc itself can also rip open, called an annular tear, spilling chemicals into and around the surrounding nerve structures, burning them, causing additional dysfunction and pain. If you or a loved one has suffered herniated disc as result of an accident, please come in and meet with me and together we'll sit down and figure out if you have a case.
