What is a hernia in Hazerswoude-Dorp?
The spine consists of vertebrae and intervertebral discs. These are held together by ligaments, muscles, and tendons. For an unknown cause, a protrusion of an intervertebral disc can occur. We call this a hernia. Usually, a hernia is in the lower back. The hernia can press on a nerve path and irritate it.
A hernia can cause pain in one leg that extends to the lower leg, sometimes to the foot. The leg pain is sharp. Certain postures or movements, as well as coughing, sneezing or straining, can evoke or intensify the radiating pain. Most people with a hernia also have lower back pain. Sometimes there is a loss of strength in the leg or a feeling as if the leg is asleep.
Do you suspect that you have a hernia? Then immediately make an appointment for a back examination.
