A herniated disc refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions i.e. disc between the individual vertebrae that stack up to make your spine. It is also known as slip disc or rupture disc in the lower back i.e. lumbar vertebrae causing most intense pain in buttocks, thigh and calf. The patients may also feel intense pain in arms and shoulders as well.

At Specialist Pain International which is a trustworthy pain management clinic Singapore, herniated discs can be treated using minimally invasive needles that only require a small puncture through the skin to removing disc material with the needle and shrinking the disc reduces the compression on the nerve and help reliving pain.
