Are Your Leg Problems an Indication of Bigger Back Problems? Atlanta, GA

Sometimes the body can betray us when it comes to the root of medical problems. For instance, experiencing pain in the right hip may point toward overcompensating for an issue in the left leg. Similarly, symptoms that you experience in the legs can stem from a primary condition in the spine.

A lumbar herniated disc is one such spinal health problem that can present symptoms in the shoulders, back, arms, hands, legs, feet or neck. You may or may not experience localized pain in the early stages. However, knowing the secondary symptoms can help inform the decision to seek diagnosis and treatment.

Numbness & Tingling

The secondary areas of the body that can alert you to a herniated disc may experience numbness and tingling sensations. Recognizing these symptoms can lead to an early diagnosis and treatment. If you are experiencing numbness and tingling in the back or limbs, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can help provide answers.

These symptoms can point to several potential health conditions or injuries. It is important that you do not ignore numbness or tingling that goes on for more than a few days. To err on the side of caution, seek advice from a qualified and reputable specialist in orthopedic medicine.

Pain & Muscle Weakness

Pain and muscle weakness may develop in the back, shoulders, neck and even the buttocks. These are common symptoms of a herniated disc that should not be ignored. There are treatment options available from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta. We can assess your needs and develop an effective approach to providing relief.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
