Fact sheet: Slipped disk and low back pain

Many people have low back pain that keeps on coming back. Often, an exact cause cannot be determined and the pain goes away on its own after a few days or a couple of weeks. But if you have low back pain that extends further down through your leg and into your foot, it may be a sign of a slipped disk, or “herniated disk”. This kind of pain, which extends into the extremities, is called sciatica. A slipped disk does not always cause symptoms, however.
