Disk herniation is a disorder of the spine which typically happens between thirties and fifties. Between the vertebrae of the spinal column there are elastic disc- shaped bodies which are some kind of buffers of the spine. They’re elastic and enable function without any problems. But as some other tissue, with aging it becomes less practical or becomes springy. After ending your 30ties, these discs are less springy and in more than 30% of folks indulgences are happening. When these discs will begin spilling, state under the name herniated disc is occurring.
Following this disc spilling, the normal form and function of vertebrae is transposed. The disc is pushing the vessels and nerves that exist in the spinal cord. Herniated disc appears in any part of the spinal column but almost 90% occurs in the lumbar (the cross) part of the body, 9% in the cervical (neck) and 1% in the rest of the body.
Which are the symptoms of a herniated disc?
-Pain in the knee or around it
-Tingling or pain in the leaves
-Pain in the lower back
-Poor control of foot
-Tingling or pain that goes down through the leg
-Keeping the body distorted
-Tingling in the feet – burning
-Weak control of urination
-Pain in during pockets with the body (body stretching, moving, bending, rotation)
-Feeling cold in feet
-Pain in the gluteal region
In case of contact with the spinal cord, problems with the entire body are seeming. Besides heredity, herniated disc can be brought on by excessive workload and insufficient relief of the back. Additionally, risk factors can be the years, really the lack of elasticity in the tissue, also wrong and unnatural location of the spine. Lifting heavy objects in old age is also another great danger of herniated disc.
Treatment of herniated disc
In case of increased symptoms, disk herniation must be operated. But is not simple to go “under knife” so before that perhaps you should try with natural treatments.
Take a moderate-sized potato and cut it into circles, coat the painful places with it. Additionally, instead you can fry few garlic gloves (which you previously knead) and put the hot concoction on the painful areas and hold them for 3 hours.
Additionally, it is recommended to consume calcium and magnesium, B complex vitamins which help in the regeneration of damaged nerves.
