I am having a bit pain in my knee. Mostly while standing for long time. Is it something serious which I should consult with doctor.
A Herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc and it 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 Herniated 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 Herniated Disc:
Treatment or diagnosis of Herniated disc or slipped 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 relaxants, 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 microdiscectomy.

Spondylitis is a condition that is getting common nowadays mainly due to lifestyle changes. What used to be a disease that affected people in the age group of sixty has started affecting the younger generation too. They can be treated at best using conventional methods and painkillers, but they do not offer a long-term solution. This is where homeopathy comes in and gives an everlasting support not only in its treatment but also in its eradication. Let us take a look, in depth, about spondylitis and how homeopathy helps in treating it.
Causes of spondylitis and how homeopathy can help
Spondylitis is a kind of degenerative osteoarthritis of the joints between spinal vertebrae and / or neural foraminae. If the affection is limited to neck area, the clinical condition is known as Cervical Spondylitis and it is known as lumbar spondylosis if limited to the back between chest and pelvis. In severe cases, there can be pressure effect on the nerves with subsequent sensory and/or motor disturbances like pain, paraesthesia, numbness, weakness or paralysis of the affected limbs.
The deterioration occurs due to the simple reason of wear and tear in those who are disposed to such problems. In some rare cases certain diseases are also known to result in such condition, but they are very few and not common. Nowadays, lifestyle changes and prolonged usage of computers are affecting the younger generation to such an extent that they are starting to get the symptoms at an early age.
We often twist and turn our necks in odd manners thus aggravating the condition. What is usually felt as a minor pain soon enlarges to a severe chronic condition called cervical spondylosis. The main symptoms include stiffness in the muscles of the neck and shoulder region. Pain is felt in the neck, and this pain usually extends itself to the back of the head. In most cases, the pain travels to the shoulders and arms and even affects the fingers. Dizziness would often be felt, and a person would sometimes be unable to recollect his surroundings. It can be diagnosed by an X-RAY or an MRI in certain cases. Most of the conventional methods use painkillers in the treatment.
The results are often miniscule as the pain gets relieved only for a temporary period and usually comes back once the effect of the drug is gone. There is no permanent solution when the conventional methods are used, and in many cases, surgery is advised as a last resort. This is where homeopathy comes in. Homeopathy not only provides relief but identifies the root cause and aims at its elimination. The result is that the pain is completely eradicated and there are very minimal chances of the condition recurring.
Homeopathy also works on the principle of understanding the patient first. The homeopathic physician gets to know the patient first - his lifestyle, his work, his family background, etc. and only then focuses on the actual treatment. This is done to ensure that each and every treatment plan should be individualised and specific to the patient.
Value of homeopathic treatment
The biggest advantage of using homeopathy is that it is completely safe and there are no side effects. They work in harmony with our life energy in the direction of cure, and the consequent positive changes are usually for life. Spondylitis can be completely cured with homeopathy.
