A one-stop solution for all of your spine issues
The term "slipped disc" refers to a condition where the intervertebral disc, which serves as our spine’s shock absorber system, is forced out of its usual position and usually in the direction of the travelling nerve roots. This causes the nerve roots responsible for the movement of our hands and legs to be pinched or compressed.
The type of slipped disc symptoms varies greatly, and they typically rely on how much of the disc has actually slipped, causing the nerve roots to be compressed. Listed below is a list of typical symptoms.
There are numerous factors that might cause a slip disc. This can be listed as follows:
There are many ways to identify a herniated disc, but the most crucial step is a thorough history taking and clinical evaluation by a spinal specialist or spine surgeon that includes a thorough neurological examination. According to the clinical examination, if the straight leg raising test is positive or there is considerable discomfort along the sciatic nerve’s gluteal course, on the back of the thigh, or in the calf region, this is typically a sign of a prolapsed intervertebral disc.
