Herniated disk

Overview

If you have lower back pain, you are not alone. Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the world — only headache is more common. Fortunately, most occurrences of low back pain go away within a few days. Others take much longer to resolve or lead to more serious conditions. Nearly everyone at some point has back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation. One of the most common causes of acute back pain is herniated disk or a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that form our spine. A spinal disk basically has a softer centre encased within a tougher exterior. A herniated disk occurs when some of the softer centre pushes out through a crack in the tougher exterior. This irritates nearby nerves and results in excruciating pain, numbness or weakness in the arm or leg. Interestingly, there are many people who experience no symptoms or discomfort from a herniated disk. Herniated disks are most common in middle age, especially between 35 and 45, due to aging-related degeneration of the disks.Excess body weight causes extra stress on the disks in your lower back. People with physically demanding jobs have a greater risk of back problems. Repetitive lifting, pulling, pushing, bending sideways and twisting also may increase your risk of a herniated disk. Disk herniation is most often the result of a gradual, ageing-related wear and tear called disk degeneration. As you age, your spinal disks lose some of their water content. That makes them less flexible and more prone to tearing or rupturing with even a minor strain or twist. It is possible that one can have a herniated disk without knowing it; they sometimes show up on spinal images of people who have no symptoms of a disk problem. The location of the symptoms varies and depends on where the herniated disk is located along the spine.
