SLIP DISC

SLIP DISC

A condition which refers to a problem with a rubbery disk between the spinal bones.
It is a very common ailment with more than 10 million cases per year. This condition occurs when the soft center of a spinal disk pushes through a crack in the tougher exterior casing.
Some herniated discs cause no symptoms. Others can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg.

Lumbar disc herniations occur in the lower back and tends to affect the lower back, buttocks, thigh, anal/genital region (via the Perineal nerve), and may radiate into the foot and/or toe. The sciatic nerve is the most commonly affected nerve, causing symptoms of sciatica. The femoral nerve can also be affected and cause the patient to experience a numb, tingling feeling throughout one or both legs and even feet or even a burning feeling in the hips and legs.

Cervical disc herniations occur in the neck. Symptoms can affect the back of the skull, the neck, shoulder girdle, scapula, arm, and hand. The nerves of the cervical plexus and brachial plexus can be affected. Usually, a posterolateral disc hernia will affect the nerve root exiting at the level of the disk

Not every disc needs intervention. When needed, treatment includes medication, physical therapy and possibly surgery.
