Slip Disc Problem

In slipped disk condition, no disk actually slips from its place as spines are perfectly interlocked in the neighboring spines and Spinal bones are supported by a circular disk like formation of tissues that are filled with jellylike substance. More the pressure applied to spinal bones, more visibly the tissue discs are affected which further result in swollen, tore, ruptured or bulged tissue disks. As a result, there is a formation of jellylike substance to infiltrate nearby areas. This jellylike substance and burst in the tissue disks causes pressure on nerve which is placed next to these tissues to aggravate the pain. Formation of this state is regarded as slipped disc.

Actually the displacement or rupturing of cushions between spinal bones results in a situation called slip disc. However, a discipline adherence to modern day lifestyle and including precaution measures can certainly help prevent or cure slip disc problem.
