Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The spinal discs are soft cushions that rest between the bones of the spine, the vertebrae. When a disc is damaged, it may herniate against the spinal cord
and spinal nerves causing Pressure symptoms like Pain, Numbness and Tingling sensation
. The Treatment Options include, Oral medications, that is Analgesics, Narcotic pain relievers, Muscle relaxants or steroid Injections and Physiotherapy
. In severe cases, where the conservative treatment fails, surgery will be considered like Discectomy
, where the surgeon will remove just the protruding portion of the disk or the complete Disc Or your surgeon may suggest the implantation
of an artificial disk.
Kindly do not worry, as they are safe and the success rated are higher. Kindly consult your Orthopedist. Apply heat pads where you get more pain and avoid taking rest for more than 30 minutes in a position in which you are more comfortable and then go for a short walk or do some work. Try to avoid activities that worsen your pain.
Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
