It is not fun and dramatically impacts your mood and life and all those around you as well, friends, family, spouse, kids. It has a major impact on your well being that is not beneficial for sure! With these types of problems, there needs to be a very specific plan to get the pain under control and keep it away. The best chance for long lasting relief is to treat the cause and source of the pain rather than try to ask the pain with medications or injections.
We focus on doing just that, getting to the source of the pain and fixing it the best we can for lasting results. There needs to be proper examination and diagnostic testing done in order to determine the best course of action for these conditions.
Unfortunately most doctors are not highly trained on disc herniations and how to fix them without performing risky surgery that may or may not help the pain and the pain relief is generally temporary and last 3 - 18 months as the source of the pain was never addressed, the compression of the disc!
With disc compression comes disc bulges, herniations and other disc related issues such as sciatica. These issues need to be addressed by "decompressing" the discs to allow them to heal properly just like a wound on the outside of our body needs to heal up.
So before you think that surgery is your solution, you may want to consider further researching other options for your disc herniation.
