Are you suffering from disc herniation?

Also known as a slipped disc. Spinal discs are found between the bones of the spine, which act to absorb shock and cushion the spine, are made up of 2 parts; a tough outer ring (annulus fibrosus) and a soft center part (nucleus pulposus). A disc herniation is caused by the tearing of the outer portion of the disc allowing part of the soft center disc to bulge out through the outer rings.

Unexpected culprit for lower back pain

A herniated disc can cause pressure and irritation to nearby nerves leading to pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms or legs. Most people with a disc herniation do not require surgery to correct their problem.

What causes a herniated disk?

Herniated discs usually develop gradually due to everyday wear and tear on the spine, and simply growing older. As we age, the discs in our back lose some of the fluid that helps them stay flexible. The outer layer of the discs can form tiny tears or cracks. The thick gel inside the disc may be forced out through those cracks and cause the disc to bulge or break open. Improper posture or trauma such as falling or lifting and twisting are examples of events that can cause a disc to suddenly herniate.

What to do to prevent a herniated disk?

To avoid the occurrence of disc herniation, in addition to paying more attention to the correct posture in daily life, you can also so more exercise in your spare time, which can strengthen the muscle strength in order to protect the spine and reduce the chance of getting disc herniation.

 

There is only a small percentage of patients with a herniated disc need surgery. There are many non-operative therapies that help reduce the pain and symptoms caused by disc herniation. Spine and Physiotherapist can restore the disc displacement by proper manipulation techniques, by means of lever concept in biomechanics. F & D Technique can apply traction force, releases and twisting force on sites of disc herniation, help fix the disc displacement. And also, the short wave diathermy, heat treatment, lumbar traction, interferential therapy would be used for muscle relaxation and symptomatic relief.
