D Disk slippage, disk problems are what you will hear. This causes more back pain. The problem occurs when the jelly-like part of the inner disc between the bones in the spine bulges outside the disc. There are many reasons for this. What causes the problem? Find out if surgery is necessary to fix the problem.
Vertebrae are made up of bones. Between each vertebra is a soft tissue called a disc.
Discs provide support to the spine. Allows movement between vertebrae. This prevents the spines from rubbing against each other. They act as shock absorbers to avoid any problems while moving.
Why is there a problem?
Each disc has a hard outer layer with a gel in the middle. This gel hardens due to aging and other factors.
Sometimes the disc bulges outward. But, the outer layers of the annulus are intact. As the disc protrudes into the spine it affects the nerves.
Bulging of the disc is called disc prolapse. With a herniated disc, there is a hole in the outer covering of the disc. This allows disc jelly to drain into the spinal canal.
Generally, as we age, our discs lose strength and bulge downward. So bulging discs are an aging problem. This causes pain in the waist, legs and buttocks.
Not being able to walk..
When the problem progresses, it becomes very difficult. Bulging discs usually affect other discs. As the days go by the problem worsens. This leads to narrowing of the spinal canal and other problems.

Prolonged sitting in one position, being overweight, lifting heavy objects, lack of exercise and smoking are all common causes.
So, you should know beforehand what precautions should be taken to avoid the problem. A proper lifestyle should be followed while taking a gap in between while working.
An MRI scan is done to check for disc prolapse. Initial treatment of a herniated disc is usually nonsurgical. Physiotherapy and other therapies are done depending on the problem. However, if the problem does not subside, surgeries are suggested.
But in which case surgery is done…
If the pain is too much and you can’t do things
If the pain persists for four to six weeks
If symptoms increase
If there is no bladder or bowel control
Tingling, numbness, loss of grip in hands, legs, feet
If it is difficult to stand and walk
Any of these problems should be seen by a doctor immediately. He will examine you and suggest you the appropriate treatment.
