Disc Prolapse: Symptoms and Cure

About


A condition in which the soft material of the spinal cord ruptures out through a tear into the tougher exterior.


Almost 70% of people have disc bulges when viewed with MRI scans.


- Requires medical diagnosis when the pain is severe
- Lab test (or) Imaging are often required
- People experience no symptoms in some cases
- Approximately 6 weeks is required for recovery.
The risk of the condition mentioned above increases with age. As you age, the water content in your spinal disks depletes making them less flexible. As a result, they are prone to wear and tear even from minor impacts.

People may experience:
Pain areas: In the arm, back, foot or leg
