Article analysis:

The article titled "Have a Herniated Disc? Here’s When You Should See a Doctor" provides some useful information on herniated discs and when to seek medical attention. However, the article has some potential biases and missing points of consideration.

One-sided reporting is evident in the article as it only focuses on seeking medical attention for herniated discs. While seeking medical attention is important, the article fails to mention other treatment options such as physical therapy or chiropractic care that may also be effective in managing herniated disc symptoms.

The article also lacks evidence for some of its claims. For example, it states that over-the-counter pain medication and light exercise can help manage herniated disc symptoms but does not provide any sources to support this claim.

Additionally, the article seems promotional in nature as it directs readers to contact Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery for treatment. This could potentially lead to partiality in reporting as the article may prioritize promoting this particular medical facility over providing unbiased information.

Furthermore, while the article mentions potential complications of a herniated disc such as loss of bladder/bowel control and loss of feeling/muscle control, it does not note any possible risks associated with seeking medical attention or undergoing surgery for a herniated disc.

Overall, while the article provides some helpful information on herniated discs and when to seek medical attention, it has potential biases and missing points of consideration that should be taken into account.
