Ruptured Disk

Author: Webmaster / August 8, 2016 / Categories:

Also called a herniated disk, this is a medical condition where the discs in the spine bulge from their proper place.

Causes
A disk in the vertebral column can rupture when there is strain or trauma put onto the spinal column. When this happens, the disk can begin to lose its fluid content, become flatter and bulge outwards.

Symptoms
When a disk becomes ruptured and begins bulging out of its proper place, it can start to put pressure on the nerves surrounding it. This can then generate pain, tingling and numbness in the area that has been affected.

Treatment Procedures
Depending on the severity of the disk rupture, your doctor may recommend such treatments as taking pain medication, undergoing physical therapy treatments or having surgery.
