Complications of herniated disk

Posted on August 18, 2015 9:21 am under Premises Liability

Herniated disk is a painful musculoskeletal condition that occurs when the gelatinous material in between the spine’s vertebrae seeps out of the disk and pushes one or more nerves, causing pain. Although symptoms might be mild for some people, several cases of herniated disk could be too painful that it can significantly impact a person’s day-to-day function for a longer period of time.

Apart from limited physical function and decreased mobility, herniated disk may also result in a variety of medical complications, including:

  • Permanent weakness or paralysis
  • Saddle anesthesia, or the numbness of the buttocks, perineum, and the inner portions of the thighs
  • Incontinence or bowel dysfunction due to compromised nerves that serve the bladder

Some cases of herniated disk have been a result of an injurious slip and fall incident that happened in someone else’s property. If you believe the incident could have been prevented if the premise owner had exercised his duty of care, speak with our team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® to possibly file a premises liability case.
