The intervertebral disc is present between the vertebrae, and it is made of a tough outer covering with a soft gel-like center. When this gel-like center comes out of a tear in the disc in the lumbar vertebrae, it is called lumbar herniated disc. It is otherwise called a slipped or ruptured disc. A lumbar herniated disc results in pain in the lower back, radiating pain to your legs, and feet pain. The pain might increase on walking, bending, and twisting. In some cases, the herniated disc shrinks over time and can relieve you of the pain. The doctor might suggest exercises, medicines, and other therapies to relieve pain. Otherwise, the surgical options include microsurgical discectomy or minimally invasive microendoscopic discectomy.
