About Herniated Discs
The spine is made up of many bones and discs that help provide support and flexibility to the body. There are 33 vertebra within the spine and between each of these bones is a disc. At the center of each disc, there is a gel-like structure called the nucleus. A herniated disc occurs when a portion of the nucleus is pushed forward through the spinal canal. This, in turn, creates a bulge that is often extremely painful. In some cases, however, patients may not experience any symptoms. Regardless of your level of pain, it's important to seek medical attention right away to get the care you need. By meeting with a medical professional, you can also help avoid a more serious condition from developing and long-term tissue damage.

"I was having severe neck pain for the past 6 months which was keeping me from sleeping, working, living life. When I saw Dr. Shroll, he got me an MRI right away and found out I have a herniated disc in my neck. After one injection, I'm completely back to normal. So glad I found Dr. Shroll and can get my life back !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Feb 19, 2019
Herniated Disc Treatment
When you visit Tricity Pain Associates, our first priority will be to perform a full health assessment to determine the extent of your condition. This will involve x-rays and other diagnostic tests as well. From there, we can build your custom treatment plan. If your case is mild in nature, then over-the-counter medications, steroid injections, or muscle relaxants will be used to ease your pain. If your condition is more severe, then surgery may be necessary to address your herniated disc. During your private consultation, we can discuss all of your options with you in great detail so you can understand all of your options.
