Herniated discs: What accident victims need to know

A herniated disc can be a debilitating injury, and it is an injury that is not always easy to treat.

Just how debilitating is a herniated disc?

Standing can be uncomfortable. Sitting can be unbearable. Walking can be difficult. Besides experiencing pain in the area of the herniation, pain can radiate down the leg. It can be nearly impossible to live a normal life when one or more discs are damaged.

Treatment can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the injury, how many discs are affected, the location of the herniation, and more. Treatment options may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Pain relievers
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Surgery (such as lumbar microdiskectomy)

The problem with a herniated disc is that discs do not heal easily. For many people, once they suffer a disc injury, they are more susceptible to future injuries. Repeated damage to a disc can result in chronic back pain and degeneration of the disc.

Did you suffer a herniated disc in an accident?

If you have suffered a herniated disc or any other disc injury after a workplace accident, car accident or slip-and-fall accident, you should speak to an attorney about your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation.
