Herniated Disc Treatments
The bones that make up your spinal column are called the vertebrae. These vertebrae are arranged in a stack like pattern separated by cartilage discs. The cartilages act as shock absorbers and consist of a fibrous outer covering that holds a soft gel like material on the inside. In addition to absorbing shock, the cartilage discs allow some movement and flexibility to your spine when you bend forward or arch back. Sometimes, damages or pressure to your disc can inflame or open it. This causes the gel to seep out through the outer covering and press on your spinal nerve endings. The condition which can result in extreme pain is called Herniated Disc.
Herniated discs are common among middle aged men and women. The condition is mainly caused due to poor posture and prolonged periods of sitting or driving. Due to wear and tear, your disc can herniate as you age. The discs gradually start loosing the fluid that is required for the spinal flexibility. Spinal injuries or accidents can also lead to herniated discs.
Depending on the severity, the damaged disc sometimes heals on its own. In such a case, medications and other non-invasive treatments are sufficient to treat the condition. Rest and exercises combined with medication are known to bring relief from mild or moderate pain caused due to herniated discs. If you have extreme pain, your doctor might suggest surgery.
