About Herniated Discs
Made of 33 vertebrae, these small bones in the spinal column stabilize and provide flexibility for movement. Between each vertebra are squishy discs that help absorb shock to the spine. If these cushions become slightly dislodged, it causes a herniated disc, which can create severe back pain and many uncomfortable symptoms. If you suffer from this type of pain, it may radiate down the legs and restrict them from functioning properly, but for some patients, the pain may not be as severe. Even if you only experience slight pain, we highly recommend seeing a medical professional immediately to prevent any further damage to the nerves. At Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX, we proudly offer many innovative treatments that give patients substantial relief and prevent further damage to the spine. Please call our helpful staff to schedule an appointment.
"I am so grateful for Tricity Pain Management they actually listen and care. I had a bad experience with another Pain Management years ago with a very extensive shoulder surgery and so you could say it was so good to have a a PA like James Houston to take care of me. Daniel his assistant is super kind as well. I wished my insurance company Atena cared like TriCity. This has been a very tough and trying season of my life. If you have a issue share it and they will listen. Thank you for caring during it."- A.L. / Google / Aug 18, 2022

Herniated Disc Treatment
Depending on your case, a herniated disc can be severe, or it may not require advanced treatment. For less severe cases, we may prescribe pain medicine or physical therapy to reduce symptoms and help your body heal. If you suffer from severe pain, our pain management doctors will create a treatment plan that has more advanced procedure options. No matter the pain level for a herniated disc, we strongly recommend setting up an appointment to prevent long-term damage. During your consultation, we will perform a comprehensive exam, which may include diagnostic tests, such as pain mapping or a discogram. After we have assessed your condition, our team will discuss the treatment options that work best for you. At Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX, we strive to help you live more comfortably and help you take control of your pain management.
