Herniated Disc Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays

A herniated disc can cause pain, numbness or weakness to surrounding nerves, in particularly the sciatic nerve. Herniated disc errors may arise where there is a delay in diagnosis, delay in providing treatment, errors during other remedial treatment and surgical errors whilst correcting a herniated disc.

Types of Herniated Disc Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays 

Suffering a herniated disc can be a traumatic and painful experience and requires the upmost amount of medical care and attention. Unfortunately there are instances where this standard is not upheld. Such instances can include:

  • A delay in diagnosing a herniated disc
  • Misdiagnosis of a herniated disc with mild sciatica, degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis
  • Failures in diagnosing classical symptoms of a herniated disc such as pain in the lower back, legs and arms
  • Failures in carrying out appropriate scans and physical examinations
  • Delay in treatment resulting in impingement of nerves, sciatica and cauda equina syndrome
  • Failures in carrying out corrective treatment such as discectomy surgery 
  • Errors during surgery, such as failure to remove the prolapsed disc fully, nerve damage and severed arteries
  • Failures in providing appropriate treatment for a herniated disc such as physiotherapy to prevent the discs from prolapsing further
  • Errors during remedial treatment such as physiotherapy and acupuncture resulting in a herniated disc
  • Any other types of herniated disc errors

If you or a loved one has been affected by a herniated disc error which has resulted in surgery, extended periods of pain and suffering, permanent nerve damage and the exacerbation of a medical condition, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
