Herniated Disc Specialists

At KSF Orthopaedic, we have a team of award winning, Board Certified orthopedic physicians committed to excellence in orthopedic spine care, treating spine, neck and back injuries. One of the common spine and back injuries is known as a herniated disk, which is a source of pain in the neck, lower back, arms, or legs. When people say they have a "slipped" or "ruptured" disc in their neck or lower back, what they are actually describing is a herniated disc.

Disks are soft, rubbery pads between the vertebrae, which make up the spinal column. Disks allow the back the bend and flex and also act as shock absorbers. When one of these disks is slipped or herniated, pain and symptoms can often occur in the lower back or even the neck. When herniated, the disk is being pushed back towards the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal nerves. These nerves are very sensitive to even small amounts of pressure.

Often herniated disks can be treated without surgery after diagnosis from a KSF orthopedic physician. In severe cases, surgical treatment may be suggested.

KSF offers a wide range of spine and neck services, including herniated disc treatment in both of our Northwest Houston locations.
