Atlanta Herniated Disc Treatment

Atlanta Herniated Disc TreatmentOrtho Sport & Spine Physicians is your trusted provider of expert herniated disc treatment.

We specialize in finding effective, minimally invasive solutions to complex spine and back problems, including herniated discs.

A lumbar herniated disc is a condition that occurs when one of the discs in the lower region of the spine ruptures. This rupturing can cause the gel-like substance from inside the disc to leak out and irritate the disc wall, spinal cord or its protruding nerve roots.  There are chemical and/or mechanical reasons for the damage these discs cause to surrounding nerves and spinal cord.  For some, this painful condition can be debilitating. The physicians and staff from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are dedicated to helping individuals with herniated discs find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and return to full function and a greater quality of life.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

The symptoms of a lumbar herniated disc can vary with each individual but may include pain, inflammation, pain that radiates down the legs, numbness, tingling and muscle spasms. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians works collaboratively with other physicians, Chiropractors and physical therapists to co-manage patients with herniated discs. We offer a variety of conservative, non-surgical treatments, including heat/cold, massage, strengthening exercises, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid/anesthetic injections and more.

In some cases, the pain and other symptoms of a herniated disc are so severe that they not able to be adequately managed using conservative, non-surgical treatments. In this case, surgery may be considered. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is proud to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery”). This advanced surgical technique offers significant patient benefits over traditional back surgery including minimal blood loss, fewer complications and a shorter recovery time. Using endoscopic surgery, we are able to help many individuals with herniated discs find long-term relief from their pain and return to work and normal daily activities.
