Spinal disc herniation is more likely to affect individuals aged between 30 and 50 and it is more common in men than women. Your general physician would be able to diagnose the condition by evaluating your medical history and slipped disc symptoms. Your GP may also carry out a test before starting the disc slip treatment to check your reflexes, posture, ability to walk, muscle strength and limb sensations. When you are lying flat on the bed or sitting, your doctor would gradually raise the legs, one by one to see if you are feeling any pain or discomfort. When your legs are being raised, it stretches the spinal nerves and if it is pressed, it would invariably cause pain and numbness. Then, he would check whether there is any slipped disc in neck and he may apply a mild pressure on top of your head and see whether you are able to move your head to both sides and bend it forward. If it leads to any pain or discomfort, chances are that a slipped disc is causing pressure on the nerve present in your neck. In most cases, the affected individual wouldn't require any treatment as the slipped disc symptoms are expected to settle within 1 to 3 months. But in case the symptoms are not settled within the given time frame, further tests would be advised to trace the exact area of the slipped disc and see whether the patient requires disc surgery. Otherwise, with slip disc treatment normal activity can be conveniently resumed.
