Minor annular tears may present no symptoms at all or may present themselves when compressing or putting pressure on the discs, such as when sitting down. If an annular tear is severe enough, symptoms may include:
Pain in the spine, neck, or legs
Pain when coughing or sneezing
Pain when bending forward
When looking to diagnose an annular tear, it is crucial to visit an experienced pain management doctor. A pain management specialist will conduct a thorough review of your medical history, examine your symptoms, and may conduct one or all of the following tests: X-Rays or MRIs or CT Scans
