Spinal Disc Problems

The spine is an essential component of the human organism. The spine, or vertebral column, provides both flexibility and stability for the human body. This column consists of 33 bones stacked upon one another. With the assistance of muscles and ligaments, these bones can move in all directions: anteriorly, posteriorly, and laterally. Separating these bones are cartilage discs. Otherwise, these bones might become brittle and disintegrate. These discs and the spine shape the body.
The human spine is essentially the body's axis. Consequently, it is also known as the axial skeleton. When there are spinal issues or disc issues in the spine, these issues can affect the entire body simultaneously. When these 33 vertebrae are not in an arrangement, issues arise.
When it comes to spinal issues,it is considered a broad spectrum -
Problems with the arrangement of the vertebral bones – Scoliosis and Kyphosis – cause a lateral or anterior-posterior curve in the spine.
Nerve issues within the spine, such as myelitis, cord dystrophy, etc.
Spinal disc issues such as disc protrusion, disc herniation, and disc enlargement.
The impact of disc problems on the body is always greater. Because the disc compresses the nerves and due to this compression, there are persistent symptoms wherever these nerves travel.

Radiculopathy, Radiculitis and Radicular Pain

At each spinal column along the entire length of the spine, nerves emerge through holes in the vertebral bone (foramina) on the right and left sides of the spinal column. The origins of these nerves are known as radicular nerves. They radiate out at each vertebral column and integrate with various body parts.
Nerves that depart the cervical spine, for instance, travel down the arms, hands, and fingers. This is why neck issues that affect a cervical nerve root can cause pain and other symptoms in the arms and hands, and low back issues that affect a lumbar nerve root can radiate through the leg and into the foot (sciatica), thereby causing leg pain and/or foot pain.
As indicated previously, the lumbar spine lacks a spinal cord. Due to this and the fact that the spinal canal in the low back is typically fairly spacious, problems in the lumbosacral region (lumbar spine and sacral region of the spine) typically result in nerve root problems rather than spinal cord injury. Even severe conditions, such as a large disc herniation or low back fracture, are less likely to result in permanent loss of motor function in the legs (paraplegia or paralysis).
The nerve roots are named after the vertebral column from which they emerge. However, nerve roots are not consistently labelled along the entire length of the spine.
When the traversing nerve root is impaired, causing Lumbar radiculopathy. There is a weak spot in the disc space directly in front of the traversing nerve root in the lumbar spine, so lumbar discs tend to herniate or leak out and impinge on the traversing nerve root.
When the exiting nerve root is impaired causing Cervical radiculopathy.
The reverse is true for the neck. In the cervical vertebrae, the disc is more likely to herniate laterally than posteriorly. If the disc material herniates laterally, it will likely compress the nerve root exiting the spine.

Ayurvedic perspective & approach to treatment

Discs are flexible tissues located between the vertebral column's rigid bones. These soft tissues function as bone impact absorbers. The discs are responsible for spinal motion. In addition to these two, these discs provide the majority of space for nerves to exit the vertebral column. The disc has elasticity. This flexibility safeguards the nerves. Some conditions affecting spinal discs include: degenerative disc disease, disc protrusion, herniated disc, bulging disc, and the common term slipped disc. All of these conditions manifest when the disc's elasticity and cushion-like nature become disturbed.
The location of the disc issues determine the classification of spinal disc problems. Cervical Disc Problems and Lumbar Disc Problems are the two most common. This is the most inclusive classification of spinal disc disorders. Classification of any problem is essential because it facilitates proper comprehension of the situation.
According to the condition of the spinal disc, there are various varieties of disc issues.
The restoration of the disc is our primary objective, on which we focus exclusively. We must address the problem's root cause. This is EliteAyurveda's primary strength and the reason why we are the most trusted centre for slip disc or radiculopathy treatment.
