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 âslipâ more than higher levels.
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). 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. The disks protect the bones by absorbing the shocks from daily activities like walking, lifting, and twisting. Each disc has two partsâa 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.
What are the causes of slip disc?
The etiology/cause of slip disc is multifactorial; there is no evidence to prove/disprove the quantitative effect of one or other. The risk factors for slip disc can be:â¨â¨â¢ life style: stress and emotional tension, poor posture -standing for long periods of time or sitting incorrectlyâcan cause slip disc, heavy physical work, lifting or forceful movement, bending, or awkward positions can really hurt your back.â¨â¢ obesity: being overweight puts pressure and stress on the back, especially the low back. Carrying excess weight aggravates other health conditions such as osteoporosis (weak bones), osteoarthritis (joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease), degenerative disc disease (described above in the aging section), spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis.
What are the symptoms of herniated disc or slip disc?
Symptoms of a slipped disc include: sciatica â pain in buttock radiating to legâ¨â¢ pain and numbness, most commonly on one side of the bodyâ¨â¢ pain that extends to your arms and/or legsâ¨â¢ pain that worsens at nightâ¨â¢ pain that worsens after standing or sittingâ¨â¢ pain when walking short distancesâ¨â¢ unexplained muscle weaknessâ¨â¢ tingling, aching, or burning sensations in the affected areaâ¨â¢ sciaticaâ a sharp shooting pain that can extend from the buttock into the leg and sometimes into the foot.â¨â¢ muscle spasm, locked back, stiffness in back, morning stiffness.â¨â¢ although rare, herniated discs can cause you to lose bowel or bladder control known as cauda equine syndrome and one should seek medical advice as prognosis deteriorates with time. One can know whether this is happening to him or not if he has urgency /frequency of urination or loss of control of urination or sudden peri anal anesthesia.
When do I need to have a spine doctor opinion?
Patients with progressive symptoms in leg / back need a specialist opinion to diagnose and treat the problem.â¨â¨symptoms which need specialist attention (red flags) are:â¨â¨1. Persistent leg painâ¨2. Numbness in legâ¨3. Weakness in legâ¨4. Difficulty in walkingâ¨5. Unable to control urine / motionâ¨â¨symptoms like bowel and bladder urinary incontinence shall seek urgent / emergency opinion /management by the spine specialist.
Which tests will be needed to confirm the diagnosis?
Imaging studies / investigations help to arrive a diagnosis of slip disc / herniated disc and include:â¨â¢ x-raysâ¨â¢ mri scansâ¨â¢ disco grams, which are rarely utilized.
What are the treatment options for slip disc?
There are different options to treat slip disc depending on the severity and duration of symptoms. They may comprise of one or many:â¨â¨1. Drugs & medicationsâ¨2. Spinal injectionsâ¨3. Spine surgeryâ¨â¨drugs, medications, to relieve slip disc: medication alone is not the ultimate solution to your back pain, however during emergency or during severe pain these medicines may help you curb the suffering. paracetamol:â¨your doctor may call this an analgesic, they donât help reduce inflammation, though. nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs):â¨these will help reduce swelling (or inflammation) while relieving your pain; thatâs how nsaids differ from paracetamol.â¨â¨muscle relaxants: which will help stop the muscular spasms.â¨â¨anti-depressants:â¨as surprising as it may seem, anti-depressants can be effective drugs for treating pain because they block pain messages on their way to the brain. They can also help increase your bodyâs production of endorphins, a natural pain killer.â¨â¨opioids:â¨in the most extreme cases, and only under careful supervision, you doctor may also prescribe an opioid.â¨â¨medication warning:â¨as with all medications, you must follow your doctorâs advice precisely.

The options of surgery are
â¢ decompressionâ¨â¢ spinal fusionâ¨â¨the spine surgery advised for slip disc can be performed in many different ways. The success rates of surgery in slip disc/ herniated disc / sciatica is 98 % and with invention of modern technology and minimal invasive surgery techniques it nears 100 %. Spine surgery can be performed in different manners:-â¨â¨â¢ conventional open surgeryâ¨â¢ minimal invasive spine surgery â key hole spine surgeryâ¨â¢ endoscopic spine surgeryâ¨â¢ microscopic spine surgeryâ¨â¢ micro endoscopic spine surgery
â¢ facetectomy: a procedure that removes a part of the facet (a bony structure in the spinal canal) to increase the space.â¨â¨â¢ foraminotomy: a procedure that removes the bony compression over foramina (the area where the nerve roots exit the spine) to increase the size of the nerve pathway.â¨â¨â¢ laminoplasty: a procedure makes more room for the spinal canal.â¨â¨â¢ laminotomy: a procedure that removes only a small portion of the lamina (a part of the vertebra) to relieve pressure on the nerve roots.â¨â¨â¢ micro-discectomy: a procedure that removes a disc through a very small incision using a microscope.â¨â¨â¢ laminectomy: a procedure for treating spinal stenosis by relieving pressure on the spinal cord.â¨â¨spinal fusion: surgery intends to stabilize an unstable segment responsible for pain, this may involve putting some screws in your spine to increase stability.â¨â¨various options of doing spinal fusion are plf /plif/tlif/ alif/xlif.

Waking up to a pillow covered in hair can be scary. Losing a little hair each day is normal but when your hair begins to fall in bunches, you need to be concerned. Thankfully, there are lots of simple ways to treat hair fall. Here are a few different types of treatment that can help deal with hair loss-
Eat Right: One of the most common causes for hair loss is a deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals. When you do not eat a well-balanced diet, your hair is the first to be affected. Thus, when you see hair falling, you need to start paying attention to your diet. Eat fresh foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. You need to pay special attention to foods rich in proteins, vitamin B12, iron and zinc. This can be found in nuts, beans, leafy green vegetables, fish and lean meats.
Massage Therapy: A massage not only relaxes the mind and body but also improves circulation. Blood circulation is important for hair health. This is because the better the blood flow, the more nutrients will be available to the hair follicles. Scalp massages are best with warm oils. This can be done just before washing your hair or the night before so that the oil is left overnight. Also, try and massage your scalp when shampooing your hair.
Laser Therapy: Laser therapy has a number of uses including being a treatment for hair fall. Laser treatment helps treat hair fall by reducing the inflammation in the hair follicle roots that is keeping the follicles from regenerating. Bi-weekly laser treatment can improve hair density in 6 months.
Hormonal Treatment: A fluctuation of hormones is one of the common reasons for hair fall. This is often seen in cases where women are approaching menopause or are genetically at a higher risk for female pattern hair loss. Hormone therapy can help reduce hair fall in such cases.
Cortisone Treatment: Cortisone is important for the health of your hair. cortisone may be injected directly into the scalp. This form of treatment may also be sued to treat hair fall caused by inflammatory scalp diseases.
Meditation: Stress can also cause hair fall. To deal with this, try yoga and meditation. Even a mere half hour of meditation each morning can help improve your overall health and hair density. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
When we speak of bone health, calcium is usually the hero of the story. However, by itself, calcium is not enough for healthy bones. Vitamin D is equally important for healthy bones and the prevention of orthopedic conditions.
What does Vitamin D do?
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium from the food being eaten. It also controls the calcium and phosphate levels in the body. This is critical for the growth and development of new bones. Vitamin D also controls how much calcium and phosphates are being expelled by the body. In this way, vitamin D helps strengthen the bones and improve overall bone health.
Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D is not commonly found in food. It is present only in certain types of oily fishes, egg yolks and mushrooms. Most of the vitamin D we eat comes from fortified cereals, breads and dairy products. The sun is an important source of vitamin D but exposing yourself to too much sunlight could cause various skin problems. Thus, vitamin D deficiency is very common. When it comes to bone health, vitamin D deficiency can cause low-density bones. This, in turn, can cause rickets and osteoporosis. People with vitamin D deficiency are likely to suffer frequent fractures. Vitamin D deficiency can also cause skeletal deformities such as bow legs and a stooped spine.
Vitamin D and Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a musculoskeletal condition that is marked by low bone density. Studies have shown that people with osteoporosis have lower levels of vitamin D as compared to others. Some studies also suggest that fractures are more common in winter as compared to summer. The winter sun is often hazy and many days can go by without strong sunlight. Thus it can be inferred that people do not get their required quota of vitamin D from the sunlight in winters leading to a deficiency and aggravated osteoporosis-related fractures.
Who is most susceptible to bone conditions caused by vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D deficiency is a very common condition across the globe. Some surveys have claimed that approximately 30% of the global population suffers from vitamin D deficiency. People with dark skin, women and elderly people are most susceptible to this deficiency. People suffering from kidney diseases may also be affected by vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D supplements are usually very helpful in combatting this deficiency. These can be taken by young children as well as adults.
