Herniated Disc - Effects And Diagnosis!

Herniated Disc - Effects And Diagnosis!

A herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc refers to the problem where one of the discs located in between the bones of the vertebrae(backbone) gets damaged and stacks itself upon the nerves. The tender inner portion of the disc gets protruded over the outer ring. Herniated disc causes severe neck pain and back pain. It occurs when the outer ring gets weak and tears down. The most common symptoms include pain and numbness, especially on one side of the body. The pain extends down to the arms and legs. It worsens during nighttime. The muscles become weak. Overweight people are likely to have this disease, as the discs carry extra weight. Old people are vulnerable to a slip disc.

Effects of Herinated Disc:
- An untreated case of herniated disc may cause permanent damage to the nerves.
- In certain cases, a herniated disc is capable of cutting off nerve impulses to the "caudal equine"nerves, present in the lower back and legs. This leads to loss of bladder control or bowel control.
- Saddle anaesthesia is another long-term effect. Nerves are compressed by the slip disc, causing loss of sensation in the inner portions of your thighs, the back of your legs and surrounding the rectum region.
- Symptoms may improve or worsen.

Diagnosis of Herinated Disc:

Treatment or diagnosis of herniated disc or slip disc can be either conservative or surgical in nature. The nature of treatment is determined according to your discomfort level and the kind of pain you are experiencing, or how much the disc has slipped out.
- The pain caused by herniated disc can be relieved by undertaking an exercise schedule which includes stretching and strengthening the spine and its surrounding muscles.
- A physiotherapist should be appointed for recommending the types of exercises.
- Taking pain relievers also soothes the pain.
- Stronger medicines prescribed by doctors include-muscle relaxers, narcotics to deal with the pain, medicines for nerve pain such as "gabapentin"  or "duloxetine".
- In case of the symptoms not subsiding within a span of six weeks, a surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The surgeon may have to remove the damaged part of the disc. This surgery is called a microdiskectomy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Quick Home Remedies For Back Pain & Nasal Congestion!

Ayurveda,
Quick Home Remedies For Back Pain & Nasal Congestion!

It is amazing that for some common ailments like cough and cold, there are so many simple and natural remedies. Come; let us know more about them.

Back pain

  1. When in back pain, the better way to get out of bed after sleep is to first lie on your side, slide your legs out of the bed and get up on your side without putting much load on your back.
  2. Sleep in a foetal position with a pillow between your knees. If you are sleeping on your back, then put a pillow under your knees.
  3. Massage your back with sandalwood oil to get a relaxing effect.
  4. Massaging your back with alcohol alleviates back pain. Ask your spouse or son/daughter to first clean the skin of your back with alcohol and then give it a gentle message.
  5. Hot and cold therapies work wonders on people having back pain. You can use ice wrapped in a towel for cold therapy.
  6. To cure back pain, mix ¼ litre of vinegar with 1 litre of water. Add 2 spoons of rosemary. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Use a towel to wet compress the mixture on your back and see the results.
  7. To alleviate back pain, walk barefoot on damp grass or mud. This releases anti-oxidants which indirectly removes the causes of back pain.

Nasal congestion

  1. Boil some eucalyptus leaves in a pot of water. When the water starts boiling, inhale the steam after covering the pot and yourself with a towel. Repeated use over several days will cure you of nasal congestion.
  2. Place herbs like bay leaf, sage and cinnamon in a bowl of boiling water. Inhale the steam for 5 minutes. The pleasant smell will drive away your nasal congestion.
  3. Take a glass of water. Put 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar and another 2 table spoons of honey in this water. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Afterwards, drink it and get rid of nasal congestion.
  4. Inhalation of the steam coming from boiling water also rids you of the clogging of nose.
  5. Having hot milk with some turmeric in the night before going to bed is beneficial for unclogging your nasal cavity.
  6. Nasal irrigation, also known as Jal Neti, is known for its nasal de-clogging property. Tilt your head to one side. Put some saline water in one nostril and let it come from the other one. Excess mucous and dirt is flushed out this way.
  7. Eating fresh garlic cloves daily on an empty stomach helps you get rid of nasal congestion.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan.
