Nearly 80% of the population sustains an episode of low back pain (LBP) once during their lifetime.
Within the vast differential of LBP, the most common source is intervertebral disc degeneration leading
to degenerative disc disease (DDD) and lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Thus, an effective understanding
of LDH, its origins, and how to appropriately treat it is of substantial importance. Through this article we
try to dispel some uncertainties about disc herniation and study in detail its aetiology, treatments available,
their indications and their clinical outcomes.
Keywords: Disc herniation, Low back pain.
