What Is a Slipped Disc?

A herniated disk is an injury of the spine (backbone). You have a series of bones (vertebrae) in your spine, stretching from the base of your skull to your tailbone. Between your vertebrae are round cushions called disks. The disks act as buffers between your bones, allowing you to bend and move with ease. When one of these disks tears or leaks, it’s called a herniated disk.

Common Symptoms

Most slipped disc occur in the lower back, but they can also occur in the neck. Signs and symptoms depend on where the disc is situated and whether the disc is pressing on a nerve.

Symptoms:

  1. Arm or leg pain. Besides pain in your lower back, you’ll typically feel pain in your buttocks, thigh and calf. You might have pain in part of the foot as well.

  2. Numbness or tingling. People who have a slipped disc often have radiating numbness or tingling in the body part served by the affected nerves.

  3. Weakness. Muscles served by the affected nerves tend to weaken. This can cause you to stumble, or affect your ability to lift or hold items.

What Are The Treatments For Slipped Disc?

In the acute phase Osteopathic treatment can ease the protective muscle spasm around a symptomatic disc and improve the mechanical function of the spine. Help and advice on the management is invaluable.

Painkillers and anti-inflammatory tablets can be useful.

In the long run, understanding how the problem developed in the first place is the key to knowing how to treat the condition and how to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

At the MHV Clinic, we place great emphasis on educating patients regarding appropriate exercise, how to look after themselves and prevention.

I had a session with Rishi today...amazing and so friendly, informative and helpful. He has referred me to one of his team for ongoing treatments. Made me feel totally at ease. Feeling so much better already. He really knows his stuff! Don't delay getting those niggles seen to...the sooner you get them seen to the better!

I’ve seen Poonam, Christie and Warren and have enjoyed all of my sessions. Each of them have their own style and approach to treatment but the one thing they have in common is results. Any time I’ve gone in with an ache or a pain they’ve managed to work the problem at the cause and alleviate it. I’ve told all my friends and family to book in an appointment as couldn’t recommend them enough!
Priya Bhayani
I saw Nick last Saturday and the treatment was great. He doesn't mess around! I'm looking forward to seeing him again next week. I've seen around 10 Chiropractors/Osteopaths/Physios in my lifetime — he is the best. I highly recommend Nick.
