Prevention and treatment of lumbar disc

Prevention and treatment of lumbar disc

Backpain today is the second most common cause of a doctor's absence and absence from work in the United States after a cold. You are also likely to have back pain throughout your life.









Although many LBPs are without cause, one of the well-known causes of disc herniation is unfortunately being over-paid in our country and all the LBPs are known to cause it. Back pain on the label of herniated discs adhere to the fact that there are other causes of back pain that may even have sciatica-like symptoms. So if you have back pain and even lower extremity pain, know that it does not necessarily mean a disc herniation, and the interesting thing is that what is documented as herniated disc herniation by many physicians and patients It is not the clinical examination and the patient's history and symptoms and more interestingly, it is present in all reports of herniated disc herniation and is not very reliable because in many cases there are asymptomatic discs that are not the primary cause of the patient's pain as the drama may Anyone who does not have any low back pain has also reported severe disc herniation and vice versa Again, I emphasize that MRI should be viewed only as an auxiliary diagnostic method and not more than that and the whole diagnostic process so that one may not have a disc herniation problem even if her MRI has been reported to her. Be it.


We assume here that the patient's problem is really the disc herniation, so we will discuss the anatomy of the disc - its functions - how it is damaged and treated.

Disc Anatomy

The disc is made up of a central nucleus called the nucleus and a peripheral environment called the annalus, and what is known as the disc herniation is the movement of the central nucleus to the nerve roots.



The disk core contains a lot of water that is lost by compressible water pressures and by absorbing water pressure, which means that the height of each person is a few centimeters longer than the day before, because the disks absorb water during the rest. They lose water day by day. As the age of the nucleus protoglycans decreases, this property of the disc is reduced and leads to degenerative disc changes. Complications are associated with this. It is therefore known to increase the likelihood of disk damage in the morning or when the person is sleeping for more than half an hour.


The most important part of the disc is to absorb compressive and shear forces and actually act as a shock absorber. Except for one third of the peripheral analus, the rest of the disc lacks nerve and blood vessel receptors, and the disc feeds through propagation.

The most important causes of disk damage

-Long sitting

-Situating without maintaining the lumbar arch

- Frequent bending

- Frequent handling of heavy objects

- Standing in a curved position

Rotate forward bending mode

But if you ask me the most important reason for a disc herniation, I would choose to sit down badly.

Interestingly, muscle weakness does not have a major effect on the disc herniation, contrary to what some might think.

 Types of Disc Hernia

INTRADISKAL DYSPLACEMENT-: Core moves slightly but environmental fibers are still healthy

PROTRUSION -: Partially torn central aneurysm fibers move backward, but external outer walls are still healthy

EXTRUSION -: All annulus fibers are torn and the nucleus is moved backwards

SEQUESTRATION -: A part of the nucleus is separated and enters the spinal canal
