Right now, you are in pain. Your back hurts, you may feel numbness or tingling in your arms or legs, it may be hard to stand or walk, or you may lose control of your bladder or bowel. Any of these herniated-disc symptoms can interfere with your daily life. They can keep you from working, from caring for your family, or from doing the activities that you enjoy.
But You Can Get Better
Medical treatment is unique for each patient and should be decided upon by your doctor. In general, treatment options for a herniated disc may include one or all of the following:
- Pain medications
- Physical therapy
It is important to follow the treatment plan suggested by your doctor to avoid further pain and complications.
That Is Only Part of Your Recovery
While your doctor addresses your physical recovery, you may also be concerned with your financial recovery. You may be worried about your medical bills and about the bills that you aren’t able to pay while you are out of work. It can be difficult to recover from these potential financial setbacks on your own.
However, if your car accident and resulting herniated disc injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation for your medical costs, lost work, and more.
