Pain Clinic Pembroke Pines - Herniated Disc
There is a certain level of confusion when it comes to the term ‘herniated disc’. It is very commonly also referred to as ‘pinched nerve’, and ‘bulging disc’, which - understandably - can lead patients to frustration (Ullrich et al. ). But what’s really important is the medical diagnosis that identifies the cause behind the ache in patient’s back/leg pain. When it comes to spinal disc problems, physicians distinguish two main types:
Pinched nerve (when the disc itself is not the issue but rather the liquid coming out of it causing the irritation and pain in the nerve nearby)
Disc pain (When the source of pain is a degenerated disc)
Herniated Disc can cause quite a few seemingly spine-unrelated pains, including a variety of symptoms in the neck, arm, hand, and fingers, as well as parts of the shoulder (depending on the location of the herniated disc). In our pain clinics, Dr. Escobar, a leading Hollywood, Aventura and Pembroke Pines pain management physician, is able to diagnose and treat the herniated disc quickly and effectively. With that sort of pain, the sooner the patient looks for medical help, the sooner the doctor can ease the patient’s suffering.
