When you are suffering from pain in the lower back or leg, you may assume this pain could be from muscle soreness. What will you do next? You may use muscle relaxant, either in liquid form, tablets or patches onto the targeted area to reduce the pain. However, the problem never solves.
Some may think of it is a blood circulation or vascular problem, as the pain is exerted on the leg. People with herniated disc will experience leg numbness, tingling and/or weakness in the thigh, calf and foot. Most of the symptoms of herniated disc are reflected on the leg instead of the spine. No wonder people tend to mistaken the source of disease.
It is unlikely that people will relate the source of problem for leg pain to lumbar spine (lower back). When a herniated disc compresses on a nerve, the pain will travel along the nerve to other associated area such as hips, thigh, calf and/or foot. This is often known as sciatica.
Don’t mistaken slipped disc as muscle pain, blood circulation or vascular problems. Spine is essential for body coordination, movement, protection and support in your daily activities.
