Herniated Disc - What are the Risk Factors?

DNB(Neurosurgery)
Neurosurgeon, Ahmedabad
Herniated Disc - What are the Risk Factors?

The symptoms caused due to herniated disc can be very severe and can also cause a bit of disability. The disc of the spine is like a cushion and separates the set of bones on the backside. The discs are shock absorbers of the spine and are mainly composed of 2 parts, a soft jelly centre called the nucleus and a tough outer covering called the annulus.

Effects of Herniated Disk
A herniated or cracked disc is a severe condition and it seems to happen most commonly in the lower back.  It happens when a fraction of the soft centre gets pushed through the destabilized area due to degeneration, trauma or by putting pressure on the spinal cord. 

Nerves are located precisely at the back of every disc and are responsible for controlling everything in our body. While a disc gets herniated, the external covering of the disc tears and creates a bulge. The soft jelly gets shifted from the centre of the disk to the region where the damage has occurred on the disc. Most commonly, the bulge occurs in areas where the nerve is located and it causes strain on the affected nerve. It has been observed that individuals do not feel any painful sensations even if their disc gets damaged.

When is Surgery Recommended for Herniated Disc?
Surgery for herniated disc is recommended only after options like steroid injections, pain relievers, exercise and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs do not work. If the pain persists even after these options, then it becomes important to go for surgery. There are certain risks involved in this surgery like infection, bleeding or nerve damage. 

There are chances that the disc may get ruptured again if it is not removed. If you are a patient suffering from degenerative disc disease, then there are chances that problem occurs in other discs. It is very important that a patient maintains healthy weight to prevent any further complications.

The main factor that increases the risk of herniated disc is excess body weight, which causes a lot of stress on the lower back. A few people become heir to a tendency of developing this condition. Even individuals with physically demanding jobs are prone to this condition. 

Activities like bending sideways, pushing, twisting, repetitive lifting can increase the risk of a herniated disk. At times, emergency surgery is also required to avoid paralysis in a patient. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

I am in 4th month of pregnancy and have thyroid with normal TSH. Our gynaecologist is asking to go from triple marker test but already 3 ultrasound have been done. Is it necessary to go for triple marker test when double marker test reports are normal? Is it ok to change gyne at 5th month?

There are situations when triple marker test needs to be done even if double marker test is normal. In such a case, I would recommend that you discuss your concerns with your present Obgyn. Taking a second opinion is your right and you should have no reservations in doing so. Only if you find your present gynaecologist non-receptive to your concerns should you consider changing doctors. Yes it is possible to change treating doctors midway. Just make sure you have all your reports available with you to share with your new doctor.

Hello. Your age does not shows menopausal stage. Hello Are you taking regular medicines or not. Continue your prescribed medicines if any. Do not eat sugar at all. Diabetes can disturb like this condition. The weakness is due to elevated sugar. Do not eat fast food. Keep eating times regular. Do not eat late night. Do not eat too much spicy. Do not eat rice items in night. Do regular exercises. Early morning 30 mins walk is most important. Revert back if more guidance needed.

During baby's organ formation (first 4 months) one should make every effort to prevent toxins and chemicals from entering mothers body. The food she eats, the water she drinks and the air she breathes should be as clean as possible. Better to use mosquito net at night and mesh on windows to avoid mosquitoes. Keep the surroundings dry to prevent mosquito breeding. Rooms well lit from sunshine will also drive away mosquitoes. If it's hot, use a ceiling fan.

I had sex in second day of my periods without any protection. And my menses period is of 28 days. Is there any chance to conceive pregnancy?

By and large there is hardly any chance of pregnancy if you had sex on the 2nd day of periods unless your menses become suddenly irregular, which is rare. I would like to suggest that it would be better if you and your partner learn about quality sexuality relationship including normal physiology of sex organs. This will definitely improve quality of your life and this you can do with an expert sexologist. Think about it, all the best.

If you are not sexually active then you should consult a gynecologist for physical examination. If you are sexually active then test for urine pregnancy test as it is the most common cause. If you have history of any other illness then you should have mentioned that.

Back pain could be due to lack of proper diet. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Take calcium and vit d supplement daily for two months also do stretching exercises of back. The periods usually get disturbed by steroidal contraceptive pills. They will become regular in a month or two.
