Herniated Disc

A herniated disc, also known as a “slipped disc” or “ruptured disc,” is a common spinal condition that can cause pain, numbness, and discomfort. This condition occurs when the soft, gel-like center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the outer layer, causing irritation to the adjacent nerves. Premier Orthopaedic Associates specializes in providing expert care and advanced treatments for herniated discs, helping our patients to achieve relief and live pain-free lives, doing what they love.

Diagnosing a herniated disc

An accurate diagnosis of a herniated disc is crucial for effective treatment. Our experienced orthopedic specialists employ a comprehensive evaluation process, which includes a review of your medical history, a physical examination, and diagnostic imaging such as MRI or CT scans to visualize the affected area and assess the extent of the herniation.

Treatments for herniated discs in New Jersey

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and therapies for herniated discs, tailored to address the unique needs of each patient. Our approach includes:

  • Conservative treatments: Many herniated discs can be managed with conservative approaches such as rest, physical therapy, and pain management techniques to alleviate symptoms and improve spinal health.
  • Medication management: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, or epidural steroid injections may be prescribed to relieve pain and reduce inflammation associated with herniated discs.
  • Physical therapy: Customized physical therapy programs are designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine, improve flexibility, and enhance posture, helping to alleviate pressure on the affected disc.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: For cases that do not respond to conservative treatments, minimally invasive procedures such as lumbar microdiscectomy or cervical discectomy may be considered to remove the herniated portion of the disc and relieve nerve compression.
  • Surgical intervention: In severe or chronic cases, surgical intervention such as spinal fusion or artificial disc replacement may be recommended to stabilize the spine and alleviate pain.
