Lumbar disc herniation

What is a hernia?

Most hernias occur in the back. Often the hernia is located between the lumbar vertebra and the sacrum. About 11,000 people undergo surgery for a hernia each year.

What is a Lumbar Hernia?

The vertebra can be divided into three areas. The lower part of the vertebrae is also called the "lumbar" vertebra. A lumbar disc herniation is a bulge of the soft core (Nucleus Pulposus) of a cartilaginous intervertebral disc. The cartilage protrudes slightly from the other intervertebral vertebrae. The bulge presses against the spinal cord or a nerve. This can cause pain or failure of the nerve.

Causes of the lumbar disc herniation

A hernia can be acute or chronic. Hernia is acute in only 5% of people. This can be caused, for example, by a fall in which the back has had to absorb the fall. You immediately feel a sharp radiating and / or local pain in the legs and surrounding local muscle stalls in the spine.
The chance of cure is high. However, you should always be careful or the symptoms do not persist, because then the acute hernia can change into a chronic hernia.
Chronic hernias are most common in people between the ages of 20 and 40. However, the chance of hernia increases as we age. As we age, the disc becomes less firm and elastic. This makes it less easy for the spine to change shape, which can lead to small cracks. When the nucleus protrudes, a hernia is spelled.

Hernia symptoms

  • Pain in the lower part of the back
  • Leg pain, can sometimes extend to the lower leg
  • You may have less strength or feeling in the leg
  • Sometimes there are periods when almost no pain is experienced, but it is accompanied by periods of much and severe pain.


Hernia can bring a lot of pain, do you recognize the above symptoms? To be able to diagnose with certainty a hernia, this can be done with the help of X-rays or an MRI scan. Based on the scan, it is possible to see whether there is any talk of possible deformations or cracks.
A back support can help you provide extra support and stability within the back.
