NBA star undergoes surgery for herniated disc

Dwight Howard, a professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association, is recovering well after undergoing surgery for a herniated disc in his back.

The Orlando Magic forward, who has been deemed an All-Star, suffered from a herniated disc in his lower back due to playing basketball. This injury forces Howard to be sidelined for the rest of the season as well as the summer Olympics.

He had arthroscopic surgery for his herniated disc, and he is hopeful to complete the recovery phase in a four-month time frame. He believes that he will make a full return to the game and that his back injury will not be an issue in the next NBA season.

Herniated discs can occur as a result of lifting heavy materials or other repetitive motions. If you have suffered from a herniated disc due to a work-related incident, please contact the Detroit personal injury lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling 866-644-6587 today.
