Are herniated disks common?
Every year, up to 2% of people get a herniated disk. Herniated disks are a leading cause of neck, arm, low back & leg pain (sciatica). They can happen anywhere along the spine, but herniated disks usually occur in the lower back or neck.
Herniated disks will get better with nonsurgical treatment for 9 out of 10 people. If conservative treatments don’t relieve your symptoms, only then do we recommend a spinal surgery consult.
