Presentation Transcript

  1. What is a slipped disc?  Injury or weakness can cause the inner jelly like portion of the disc to protrude through the outer ring.  This is known as a slipped or herniated disc.  This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disc compresses one of your spinal nerves, you may also experience tingling, numbness and pain along the affected nerve.  As the lumbar spine (lower back) carries most of the body weight, it tends to “slip” more than higher levels.

  2. What is the anatomy of disc herniation / herniated disc/ slip disc /sciatica?  Human Spine is made of up 33 bones (vertebrae) that are cushioned by discs.  These vertebrae are divided by region: neck (cervical spine), mid-back (thoracic spine), and low back (lumbar spine).

  3. At the lower end of your spine, you also have the sacrum and the coccyx, which is commonly called your tailbone.  Discs are present between these bones.

  4.  The disks protect the bones by absorbing the shocks from daily activities like walking, lifting, and twisting. Each disc has two parts—a soft, gelatinous inner portion (nucleus pulpous) and a tough outer ring (annulus fibrosus) . Together, the vertebrae and discs form a tunnel through which the spinal cords and nerve pass.
