It strikes between the age of 30-50 and the main cause is aging. During aging the spinal disks lose their water content which makes them less flexible and prone to tearing or rupturing.
As a disc degenerates and breaks down the inner core leaks out through the outer portion of the disc. This condition is known as a disc herniation or a herniated disc.
So which are the symptoms for this condition, read it the list that I made for you.
Herniated Disc Symptoms
- Lower back pain
- Pain coming down your leg
- Pain in the buttock area
- Calf pain
- Numbness and tingling in the legs
- Sexual dysfunction
- Weak legs
- Loss of bladder or bowel control (rare symptoms)
The intervertebral disc primarily is consisted of fibrous ring which surrounds an inner gel-like center which is consisted of lots of water. As aging starts the ring become weak and the inner gel starts to leak out by that it presses the nerve and causes lumbar disc herniation.
The discs function like sponges when you’re standing there’s pressure on them and they leak damaging fluids; when you lay or sit, that pressure reduces.
Besides aging as normal process, living hectic and consuming junk foods can cause your discs to herniate. Bad posture, smoking, obesity and lack of physical activity causes weak muscles and that causes weak discs.
How to treat this condition?
The best way to treat it is to undergo surgery. It’s really hard to decide whether to go under the knife and that’s why you should try treating it the natural way first.
