A slipped disc happens when a soft cushion of tissue between the bones in your spine pushes out. It is painful if it presses on nerves. Symptoms include back pain, arm or leg pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is high time that you consulted a specialist as this not only causes pains but also causes harm to the digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems.
Slipped disc is a common problem these days. On one hand, the nutritional value of the food we eat has degraded over the years, and on the other hand, we have become quite careless in the way we treat our bodies. Lifestyle changes have impacted our bodies structurally as well as physiologically.
We have come across numerous people who experience severe pain in their arms, legs, and/ or back. But ignore these pains assuming a muscle pull. However, if the pain is due to a slipped disc, early treatment and care is important. If left unattended, slipped disc could pose harmful risk to your digestive and reproductive systems.
Taking pain killers and other similar medication could suppress the pain but will not cure the problem. The problem will keep affecting your organs while you think that the pain is gone with an analgesic. Systematic care and treatment with the help of a specialist can help cure the problem and minimize the damage done to the internal organs. But, first of all, it is important to know the cause of the pain to ascertain suitable treatment.
A scientific way to know if you have a slipped disc is to get an MRI done. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the body is done using powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer. This scan produces detailed pictures of the inside of your body clearly showcasing the problems, which helps your specialist initiate the most fitting treatment.
