Slip Disc

Our spinal cord is made up of a series of bones (vertebrae) stacked onto each other. These bones are cushioned by discs that protect bone by absorbing the shocks from daily activities like walking, lifting, and jumping.

Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion, to protrude through the outer ring. This is known as slipped, herniated, or prolapsed disc. This causes pain. If the slipped disc causes compression of any nerve, it may cause pain and numbness.

Risk Factors :
  • Age due to wear and tear on the spine
  • It is more common in men than females
  • Improper lifting of heavyweights can cause a herniation
  • Any back injury or fall
  • Obesity
  • Frequent driving with improper posture
  • Sedentary lifestyle
Symptoms :
  • Pain extending arms and legs
  • Pain worsens usually at night, after physical exertion
  • Unexplained muscle weakness
  • Tingling, aching, or burning sensations in the affected area
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control in rare cases
Homoeopathic Approach :
Homeopathy is highly recommended in slip discs. Homeopathy helps to manage the pain numbness and other symptoms. It can help to avoid the side effects of steroids. Though degenerative changes can’t be reverted back, with homeopathy further progress can be slowed down, allowing the patient to lead a normal healthy life.
