The pain caused by a hernia may extend from the back towards the leg and lead to leg pain, or to the arm.

Medicine and rehabilitation are good resources to prevent their growth, although the most common treatment is surgery, in which a tube is placed to remove excess fluid. ...
Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. Lumbar hernia is one of the most common and causes compression or irritation of the nerve root, which often just manifesting as sciatic nerve pain, depending on the position and size of the hernia. The main causes of herniated discs are articulate aging, trauma or prolonged exertion. In addition, there are risk factors that favor its appearance, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle or snuff.

Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
