A herniated disc in the lower back is one of the most common causes of back pain. This type of pain is often caused by aging or an increased amount of stress on the discs. Should a disc herniate, it may cause pressure on the spinal nerves or cord. Lower back pain and leg pain, weakness in the lower extremities, muscle spasms and reduced reflexes are common symptoms that may also be present alongside the herniated disc. In rare cases, a patient may also experience a loss of bladder or bowel control.
“After a 5 years of neck pain and having exhausted all medical treatment known to me, I decided to see Dr Cantor for possible surgical intervention for my constant neck pain.
Immediately after surgery, the pain I had experienced for 5 years was gone. The surgical pain was minimal immediately, and relief from the surgical pain was controlled with Tylenol most of the time. In the 5 month since surgery I have gone from a very sedentary lifestyle due to the neck pain to a very active life style with no pain. And I thank Dr Cantor for giving me back my pain free life again.”
“Dr. Cantor is an attribute to the medical community. I had surgery with him and went from not being able to take care of my children and barely walk to having a normal life again.”
“Dr. Cantor not only saved my life but the quality of my life. He is the best!”
“I am pain free because of Dr. Cantor.”
