What are some signs of disk herniation?

One injury that is common among workers who do a lot of heavy lifting is disk herniation. However, this can affect anyone who does repetitive motions every day, as well as people who get in workplace incidents or crashes on the road.

Identifying a herniated disc is important for the overall treatment of it. Mayo Clinic lays out the symptoms of a herniated disk, which is a condition that may need surgery to correct. Herniated disks are an issue in which the jelly-like center of a spinal disk slips past the tough outer exterior. This can cause pain, numbness, weakness, and damage to nerves.

Herniated disks commonly occur mostly in the lower back – or the lumbar spine – because of repetitive motions, unsafe lifting, or staying in the same sedentary position daily. However, cervical disks in the neck area can also become herniated, especially if you suffer from whiplash. Signs include pain in the legs or arms. Sometimes your feet may also be affected. It can be a shooting pain or a radiating pain.

Weakness in the muscles can come in the form of tripping, an inability to pick items up, or a lowering of your ability to lift your arms or other items. Nerves affected by the disk can also cause a tingling or numb sensation in the affected area, including the limbs, the neck, or the trunk.

If you have suffered from an incident that led to a slipped disk, you may want to seek medical attention and legal counsel. Legal professionals can help you gain compensation for your pain.
