Most hernias occur in the back. Often the hernia is located between the lumbar vertebra and the sacrum. Every year about 11,000 people are operated on the result of a hernia.
The spine is divided into three areas. The lower part of the vertebrae is also called the "lumbar" spine. A lumbar disc herniation is a protrusion of the soft core (Nucleus Pulposus) of a cartilaginous intervertebral disc. The cartilage protrudes slightly with respect to the other intervertebral vertebrae. The bulge presses against the spinal cord or a nerve. This may result in pain or withdrawal symptoms of the nerve.
A hernia can be acute or chronic. In only 5% of people, a hernia is acute. This can be caused by, for example, a crash in which the back has to catch the crash. Immediately a sharp radiating and / or local pain in the legs is felt and surrounding local muscle stalls in the spine arise.
The chance of healing is great. However, care must always be taken to ensure that the symptoms do not persist because the acute hernia can then turn into a chronic hernia.
A chronic hernia is most common in people between 20 and 40 years old. However, the chance of hernia increases as we get older. As we age, the discus becomes less firm and elastic. This means that less simple shape changes can occur in the spine, which can cause small cracks. When the nucleus bulges out, sponges of a hernia occur.
Hernia can cause a lot of pain, do you recognize the symptoms above? To be able to make a diagnosis about a hernia with certainty, this can be done with the help of X-rays or an MRI scan. Based on the scan, it can be checked whether there are any possible distortions or cracks.
A possible back bandage can help you provide extra support and stability within the back.
