We understand how frightening it can be to be diagnosed with an intervertebral herniation. We also know how confusing the many diagnostic terms can be. This site will clarify the exact meaning on any term found on your MRI report and will differentiate the various diagnostic conclusions, including annular tears, degenerative disc disease, disc desiccation, herniated discs, bulging discs, ruptured discs, extruded discs, sequestered discs, disc prolapse and slipped discs.
You will find enlightening resource sections describing the causes and symptoms of herniated discs. You can investigate spinal disc concerns in the neck, upper back, middle back and lower back and how each location is relevant to the effects produced. The site also provides an in-depth look at the spinal disc anatomy to help patients better understand how and why discs can suffer from degeneration or injury.
Finally, the main goal of the site is to explain the diversity of traditional, complementary and alternative herniated disc treatment options. From home remedies to conservative care to disc surgery, there are more choices than ever before.
