Herniated Disk Cases
A disk is a jelly-like substance that lies between the vertebrae in the spine. When the spine suffers a sharp blow (for example, in a vehicle accident or a fall from a height), a disk can slip away, causing back pain, neck pain, leg pain, and limited mobility. Called a herniated disk, these injuries are rarely diagnosed in the emergency room. Many people who suffer from herniated disks try to ignore the pain, thinking it may go away with time. However, a CT scan or MRI can reveal the existence of a herniated disk. With a proper diagnosis, the injured person may be able to obtain treatment to ease the pain and correct the problem.
