Disc injuries refer to problems associated with the rubber-like cushions between each vertebrae. Disc injuries have the potential to affect more than just your spine. Because your spine is an integral part of your body, a disc associated injury could affect your outer extremities causing numbness, tingling sensations, weakness and/or pain.

If you are experiencing any back pain, as well as associated pain and/or numbness with your extremities, you may be experiencing a disc injury. In some cases, a disc injury may be associated with a more serious medical issue. In order to properly discover the root of the issue, I’ll need to do a thorough evaluation to locate the source of the problem.
