A slipped disc is also known as the spinal disc herniation. It is a medical condition that causes rubbery discs between bones of the spinal cord. Discs are the cushions that lay between the bones of vertebrae. They protect the spinal bones during shocks. However, sometimes these discs might get ruptured, or split, causing the condition we call as ‘slipped disc’.
A slipped disc is a very common condition in people of all ages. It is also called a prolapsed or ruptured disc, as the nuclear tissue dislocates from the center of the disc. This condition occurs when the tissues get ruptured in the vertebral column causing the central tissue to leave its area. This tissue presses the spinal cord which causes pain, dizziness, or weakness.
It sometimes leads to extreme pain in the back, neck, and abdomen with numbness, fever, etc. It is usually caused due to an imbalance in bodily postures while sitting, sleeping, walking, etc. and can also lead to sciatica if the herniated disc presses the sciatic nerve.
The herniation of the disc can happen anywhere, be it neck, middle back or lower back. These can be diagnosed with X-Rays or MRIs. The person suffering from a slipped disc is advised to avoid any movement and face difficulty in lifting, twisting or turning. The use of medication, ice packs, exercises, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery is also suggested. However, Ayurveda has helped a lot during such severe conditions.
