Slipped Disc Treatment in India

The vertebral column is composed of interconnected bone discs, with a soft material called nucleus pulposus at its core, surrounding the nerves and spinal cord. This soft material resembles a fluid containing a loose network of collagen fibres inside the core.

    Micro, Lumbar Slip Disc Doctors in Gurgaon

    • Micro, lumbar, and slip disc are common spinal conditions that affect the lower back, causing severe pain and discomfort. Various treatment options are available in Gurgaon, including surgical and non-surgical approaches.
    • Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat lumbar disc herniation, a common cause of lower back pain.
    • Lumbar disc herniation occurs when the soft tissue inside a spinal disc bulges out and presses on the surrounding nerves, resulting in pain and discomfort.
    • A slipped disc, also known as a herniated disc, occurs when a spinal disc ruptures, causing the soft material inside to leak out and leading to pain and discomfort.

    Renowned neurosurgeons in Gurgaon are known for their compassionate and patient-centric approach to care. They take the time to understand their patients’ needs and concerns, working with them to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and goals.

    Facts about slipped discs

    The nucleus pulposus helps withstand compression and torsion on the vertebral column. Any damage or injury due to a sudden, significant force can cause the fluid to leak through the ruptured bones. This results in pressure on the lower back, leading to discomfort, uneasiness, and pain. You may also experience aches in the legs and hips.

    Symptoms of slipped discs

    While a slipped disc can occur at any part of the spine, the lower back is most prone to it. This condition exerts additional pressure on the lower back muscles, leading to symptoms like lower back pain while standing or sitting, nerve root pain, and inflammation.

    Causes of slipped discs

    Slipped discs can have various causes depending on the progression of the prolapse. They can occur suddenly, such as when falling on your buttocks from a height or lifting a heavy object, leading to a fracture in the vertebral bone. Gradual slipped discs can occur when sitting in the same position for extended periods due to a sedentary lifestyle and being overweight. Recognizing the causes is crucial for diagnosis.

    Diagnosis of slipped discs

    Neurosurgeons in Gurgaon diagnose slipped discs through physical examinations, X-rays, and MRI scans. If symptoms are severe, additional tests may be required. Typically, slipped discs manifest as lower back pain, and MRI scans are recommended.

    Treatment for slipped discs

    Some vertebral prolapses resolve on their own with symptoms disappearing within a few weeks. However, caution is advised. Treatment may involve anti-inflammatory medications, paracetamol, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, and Pilates. In cases where patients do not respond to these treatments, nerve sheath injections may be necessary. If healing is prolonged, surgery may be recommended.
