This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression. Cervical spondylosis – chronic condition with radiating pain As your rightly said you have to go for traction and also you can do IFT. Please consult the near by therapist for quick relief. Since you have pain for more than 10 years it is suggestible to go for cervical muscle strengthening exercise. Use collar will definitely be helpful for him to maintain the good posture. And also cervical pillow can be used which might make you to have better posture of the shoulder neck and arm.

Anushka Sharma Suffering From Bulging Disc - Know The Symptoms, Causes And Treatment Of The Condition

Anushka Sharma Suffering From Bulging Disc - Know The Symptoms, Causes And Treatment Of The Condition

One of the most loved Bollywood actresses, Anushka Sharma, has reportedly been diagnosed with bulging disc, more commonly known as a slipped disc or a protruding disc.

As per the media reports, the actress, who has been busy promoting her upcoming movie ‘Sui Dhaga’, has been advised rest by doctors.

So , let’s take a look at the symptoms, causes and treatment of bulging disc.

Symptoms:

A bulging disc happens when the tough outer layer of the disc bulges into the spinal canal. It is one of the most common spine injuries which can occur in your lumbar spine (lower back), cervical spine (neck) or thoracic spine (upper and mid-back).

The symptoms of bulging disc can vary on the basis of the location and severity of the condition. There is a possibility that a person suffering from a slipped disc does not have any signs till the bulging area does not press against a nearby nerve.

A person, however, may feel severe pain if the spinal nerve is pressurised by displaced disc material.

The signs of bulging disc may include:

The most common sign of the disease is intense pain radiating to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet due to damaged disc. In the cervical spine, pain can radiate from the neck, down the arm and to the fingers. The other signs are numbness, weakness, tingling and muscle spasms.

Causes of a bulging disc:

Among the most common reasons for a bulging disc are injury, wear-and-tear, ageing, excess body weight, severe trauma, etc. 

Genetics may also be the reason for developing this condition. People with family history of degenerative spine conditions are more prone this disease.

What are the treatments?

People who are diagnosed with a bulging disc are generally recommended treatments that relieve its symptoms. These treatments include warm compresses, exercises, medication and rest.

If the condition of the patient does not improve even after the above mentioned measures, the doctor will advise surgery.

How to prevent a bulging disc?

Bulging disc can not be entirely prevented but you can be physically active, do some back strengthening exercises and yoga to reduce the chances of suffering from it.

We hope the condition of Anushka is not severe and she soon returns to her full-fledged schedule to keep us enthralled with her flawless on screen performances. Wish her a speedy recovery !

Mild slip disc is never a problem and can be overcomed by regular exercise without any medications in about 6 month. Pain for 7 years may not be due to slip disc. Get an mri done to check. Also your vit D and calcium level.

Slip disc is a general term, there are many stages in it, Have you got mri of spine, if so then only we can clearly say which stage and treatment depends on stage. Kindly post your mri report. Contact for further details. Only initial stages conservative works otherwise surgery is only option.
