Radiculopathy: Most herniated disks will get better on their own, however if the symptoms worsen after conservative treatment then other methods should be investigated.

I've had minor pain in my lower back. Is it possible i pinched a disc?

I've had minor pain in my lower back. Is it possible i pinched a disc?

Herniated discs, when symptomatic usually present with sciatic symptoms, i.e., nerve type leg pain with or without back pain.
