Lumbar Spine Surgery Intervention
Lumbar Spine Surgery Intervention:
What is a herniated lumbar disc?
A herniated lumbar disc is a disc that has lost it’s hydration. This loss of hydration can result in reduction in height of that disc – this disc is your bodies shock absorber, without hydration the disc dries up and loses shock absorbtion. Once the intervertebral space where the nerves exit the spinal column is reduced, causing an impingment and pressure upon those nerves. When this happens nerves associated with parts of the body related to these nerves cause irritation, pain, and reduced stimulus to that part of your body, including muscle tone lose. Not to metion further stress of adjacent discs.
Once you, your family or your doctor have made the decision that something must be done. Either because you are tired of suffering in pain and depression, or because you are done living on pain medication, continuing to up the dosage, and reducing more and more of your what used to be normal activities. Or you have been told you need surgery and you don’t want a temporary fix or a fusion.
