Slipped Disc And Nerve Root Compression


When Arif got his tests done, he learned that the reason behind this stark pain was slipped disc, leading to nerve root compression.


Disc bulging also called a herniated disc or slipped or ruptured disc, is a condition where a fragment of the disc nucleus is pushed out of the annulus into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus. Discs that become herniated usually are in an early stage of degeneration.


A herniated disk, which can occur in any part of the spine, most often occurs in the lower back. Depending on where the herniated disk is, it can result in pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg.


It’s common for a herniated disk in the lower back to cause “sciatic nerve” pain. This sharp pain usually shoots down one side of your buttocks into your leg and sometimes the foot.

What Is Slip Disc Herniation?


A herniated disk is an injury of the spine (backbone).


A herniated disk is a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the bones (vertebrae) that stack to make your spine.


A spinal disk has a soft, jellylike center (nucleus) encased in a tougher, rubbery exterior (annulus). Sometimes called a slipped or ruptured disk, a herniated disk occurs when some nuclei push through a tear in the annulus.


A herniated disk, which can occur in any part of the spine, most often occurs in the lower back.

Causes Of Slip Disc Herniation


  • Aging.
  • Excessive weight.
  • Repetitive motions.
  • Sudden strain from improper lifting or twisting.
