Disc herniation or slip disc is a widespread cause of lower back pain in golfers and non-golfers. The patient presents with acute onset of low back pain following a snap or a clicking sound in the low back. Slip disc is very common in people at the age of 20-40. There may be a radiating pain shooting down the leg in the next 24 to 48 hours following the back injury. The pain, numbness, or tingling sensation will most likely radiate down the thigh in a specific pattern according to the dermatome. The lowest most disc in the lumbar spine, the L5/S1 disc, is the most commonly affected, and the S1 nerve root can impinge at this site.

Prolonged sitting, aggressive coughing, and Valsalva maneuver can increase the pain in the back. The radicular pain in the leg can sometimes be more pronounced than the back pain. Straight leg raise test that involves stretching of the sciatic nerve and spinal nerve roots can aggravate the pain during the physical examination of the patient. The neurological examination needs to be performed to look for sensation changes, muscle weakness, and reflex changes.
