Lumbar Herniated Disc
The Essential Guide to Finding Back Pain Relief
About this Book
You may know a lumbar herniated disc by its many names: slipped disc, bulging disc, or ruptured disc. Or you may know it by its most common symptom: the burning, radiating leg pain known as sciatica.
If you are afflicted by this common lower back problem, you will benefit from learning as much as you can about your condition and how it can be treated.
That’s where this book comes in. Compiled from the best doctor-authored, peer-reviewed articles of Spine-health, this book includes information about spine anatomy, how lumbar herniated discs are diagnosed, and—most importantly—what treatment options are available to ease pain and restore quality of life.
- Self-care options
- Surgery options
- When to see a doctor

I have multiple levels of herniated discs in lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. I read this book and found it full of info that I wish I had 20 years ago when I first herniated my lumbar discs. It's a great read and easy to understand. I would recommend that anyone with disc issues read it.
