Procedure for Disc Herniation


What Is Disc Herniation?

Spinal Disc Herniation is a condition which usually occurs due to the degenerative changes in aging. It is also known as bulging disc. The spinal disc can be divided into two parts:

  • The Outer layer
  • Internal layer

The outer layer protects the inner layer. In the degenerative process, this outer layer is worn out; consequently leading to exposure of inner layer. This process is also known as disc degeneration. Further, these irregularities can cause severe pain because of inflammation and other conditions. The cumulative process of disc herniation is aimed at the management of these conditions and cure of the problem to curtail down their side effects.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure to treat the condition of consistent neck pain and back pain. This procedure can also be termed as an initial process in the case of spinal disc herniation to suppress the need of advanced treatments and surgeries.

Symptoms of Disc Herniation

  • Pain in arms or legs: Severe pain can be experienced in buttocks, thighs, calves and feet. Similarly, in case the herniated disk is in the neck region; severe pain can be experienced in the shoulder or arms. Also a typical symptom of herniated disc is shooting pain in the arms or legs on coughing, sneezing or during movement of the spine in certain postures.
  • Numbness/tingling: This is experienced in the respective body part where the nerves are affected.
  • Weakness: Severity in this symptom can consequently lead to stumbling, impairing the lifting and holding ability.

What is a Pinched Nerve?

The pinched nerve or Radiculopathy is a condition in which there is a malfunction of one or more nerves causing severe pain. This condition occurs due to the degenerative changes in the body or as an outcome of an accident as well.

What is Stenosis?

A Stenosis is an abnormal condition, in which hollow or tubular structures like blood vessel, nerves, etc are narrowed. Spinal stenosis occurs when the spaces in the spines are narrowed. This results in adding pressure on the spinal nerves. Mostly, the spinal stenosis is usually noted in the lower back and the neck.

What is a Slipped Disc?

A slipped disc is a condition in which an injury or weakness results in protrusion of the inner portion of the disc to the outer ring. This creates discomfort in the form of pain and other abnormalities.
