Disc injuries, also known as a “bludge”, “slipped disc”, “herniation” and often “sciatica” occur for a variety of reasons. Powerful movement during sports or when lifting heavy objects are the most common cause if disc injury, however they can occur with no obvious trigger and can lead to poor posture and slow degeneration.
What is a “disc”
Inter-vertebral discs are the cushioning joint in-between all our spinal bones. Like some of the other cartilage in the many joints of the body, these discs’ act as a shock absorber between bones whilst adding stability throughout movement. When a disc is excessively or repeatedly compressed it becomes inflamed and can rupture causing pressure on the spinal nerve.
Our team of chiropractors, physiotherapists, acupuncturist and naturopaths typically see the following form patients suffering from a disc injury?
- Usually aged between 20-40 years (males more often)
- Sudden onset of lower back pain – often with leg pain past the knee
- Pain can feel sharp, shooting, burning or electrical
- Can cause numb areas in the thigh and calf or a tingling (‘pins and needles’)
- Leg pain is often worse than the back pain
- Can occur immediately or days after heavy lifting, twisting, straining or repetitive stress/trauma
- Pain increased by movement (moving from lying to sitting/sitting to standing) and coughing or sneezing
Our experts may recommend a number of different strategies to combat your disc injury. Avoidance of aggravators’ is vital along with hands on therapy to release and mobilize the painful protective muscle spasms that coincide with all disc irritation. Sleep quality is nearly always disrupted by disc injury so some medication is often required in the early phase to help promote quality healing sleep. X-ray and MRI imaging can sometimes be recommended in order to gather more information on the size and number of levels of injury sustained. Tailored exercises and stretches are prescribed to further relieve pressure on the nerve whilst strengthening the structures of the back, hip and legs to provide long term relief. Our experts will also recommend postural, sleep and occupational changes (i.e. from new bed mattress type to work based stretching routines/intervals).
