Herniated Disc Q & A

What is a herniated disc?

Between each of the bones of your spine, or vertebrae, is a rubbery disc that cushions the joints as you flex and extend your spine. Each disc has a sturdy outer ring called the annulus and a soft, gel-like center called the nucleus.  

A herniated disc occurs when the nucleus pushes out through tears in the tissue of the annulus. Herniated discs can occur anywhere in your back or neck; the bulging nucleus often presses on the nerves that emerge from the spinal cord, causing pain and other symptoms.

What causes a herniated disc?

Wear and tear on the structures of your spine, age-related disc degeneration, and injuries that involve poor posture while lifting something heavy are the most common causes of disc herniation. If you’re overweight, you smoke, or you have a job that requires heavy lifting, you may have an increased risk of developing a herniated disc.

What are the symptoms of a herniated disc?

Sometimes, herniated discs don’t cause any symptoms. When they do, symptoms are typically felt in the back or limbs close to the affected disc.

Common signs and symptoms of a herniated disc include:

  • Arm or shoulder pain
  • Hip or leg pain
  • Radiating pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle weakness

Pain from a herniated disc might be constant or intermittent. It's often described as a sharp or burning sensation.

How can a herniated disc be addressed?

Dr. Lynch and the experienced team at Renew Stem Cell Clinics can address pain from a herniated disc using a revolutionary treatment known as stem cell therapy. This cutting-edge procedure utilizes the powerful ability of stem cells to boost the natural process of tissue repair. 

The Renew Stem Cell Clinics practice uses embryonic stem cells extracted from voluntarily donated umbilical cords of healthy, full-term babies. When injected into damaged joints, these sterile cells can rebuild damaged disc tissue, reduce pain, and stimulate your body’s natural healing response.

How many stem cell treatments will I need?

The number of treatments depends on the location of the herniated disc, the extent of damage to disc tissue, your overall health, and other individual factors. Following your consultation, Dr. Lynch provides you with a detailed treatment plan, so you know what to expect from stem cell therapy.
