Slipped Disk

Slipped Disc | Bayside Chiropractic

A slipped disc is a condition that causes pain and numbness in your entire body. If you want to get rid of this problem, consult a professional chiropractor today.

Your spine is made up of vertebrae (a series of bones) stacked onto each other. All these bones are shielded by discs. These discs safeguard the vertebrae from the shocks of daily activities, such as walking, exercising, twisting, and lifting. Each disk has two parts: a tough outer portion and a soft, gelatinous inner part.

Weakness or injury in the disc can cause the inner part of the disc to extend through the outer portion. This condition is called a slipped disc. Also known as a prolapsed disc or herniated disc, this problem can cause pain and discomfort in the entire body. This problem is most often found in people between the ages of 30 and 50 years.

People with a slipped disc may experience pain, weakness, and numbness along the affected nerve. A herniated disc may also cause extreme pain in the lower back. In such conditions, they may need surgery to repair or remove the prolapsed disc.

 

Symptoms of a Slipped Disc

You may have this problem anywhere in your spine, starting from the neck to the lower back. The lower back is the most common area for herniated discs. Symptoms of this condition include:

  • Numbness and pain in the body
  • Extreme pain in your legs and arms
  • Pain on walking 
  • Muscle weakness 
  • Burning and tingling sensation in the affected area 

The pain can vary from person to person, depending on his condition. 

 

Causes of a Slipped Disc 

The causes of this problem are not clear. However, there are a few things that make you more prone to developing this disc condition. For instance, people who are in sitting and weight lifting jobs are at higher risk of a slipped disc. Whatever the cause is, you need to consult a doctor immediately if you experience numbness and pain in the body that affects your strength to control muscles.
