Stratford Disk Herniation Lawyer

Out Of Work Because Of A Disk Herniation?

Disk herniation can be the result of either an immediate injury or repetitive stress to the spine over time. As with any back injury, pain is intense, often leaving injured workers unable to adequately perform their jobs for any length of time.

At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., in Bridgeport/Stratford, Connecticut, we focus our legal practice solely on helping the injured. We have come to understand the mechanics of disk herniation and how it impacts a person’s life. Our goal is to help you or an injured loved one get the workers’ compensation benefits you need and deserve.

With two board-certified workers’ compensation specialists on our legal team, you can be certain your case is in knowledgeable hands. Contact us to schedule a free consultation with a skilled Stratford disk herniation lawyer.

What Is Disk Herniation?

The spine is made up of 33 vertebrae separated by cushions, known as disks. Cervical, thoracic or lumbar disk herniation can occur when one or more of these disks rupture. This causes the disk to change shape or shift position, pinching or irritating nearby nerves.

What Are The Symptoms Of A Herniated Disk?

When a nerve is irritated by a herniated disk, several symptoms can occur, including:

  • Back pain at the specific level of the injured disk
  • Numbness and tingling of the upper or lower extremities
  • Electrical shocks in arms and legs
  • Cauda equina syndrome, impacting urination and bowels
  • Muscle weakness

How Is A Herniated Disk Diagnosed?

In cases of immediate injury, many workers will visit the emergency room for X-rays. Unfortunately, an X-ray cannot detect a herniated disk. An MRI, which makes a detailed picture of the cross sections of your spine, will help a physician determine if a disk has been herniated. Other diagnostic tools may be deemed reasonable and necessary.

What Treatment Options Are Available?

There are several options for treatment of a herniated disk. Most doctors prefer to begin with nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy. In some cases, surgery is the only option for pain relief. Doctors may suggest:

  • Disk removal
  • Disk replacement
  • Discectomy
  • Fusion
