Your Spine’s Discs and the Trouble they can Cause


What to do About Disc Pain Issues in Cincinnati

If you are reading these words, there’s a good chance you or someone you care about has at some point experienced back pain.

And, you’re not alone.

Did you know, after the common cold, it is the number two reason for going to the Doctor?

31 million Americans report having back pain on any given day, and a lot of time it’s because of spinal disc issues.

So, another deep dive this week. What is a disc? How does it go bad?

And What You Can Do About It.

Your Spinal Discs Have 3 Jobs.

First, they act as a shock absorber between the bones of your spine.

Second, they act as ligaments to hold those bones together.

Third, they act as a joint, because your spine needs to move.

It does these jobs by being a jelly donut with a tough outer portion (the annulus fibrosus) encases the gel-like “jelly” (the nucleus pulposus”

Back pain or sciatic pain in your leg happens when your disc is damaged and presses on your spinal nerves.

Herniated Disc  

The first type of disc damage is called a Herniated Disc  (which is often called a slipped disc, or a ruptured disc).

Since a disc will usually only herniate to one side or the other, the symptoms will usually show up on one side of your spine, or in one leg or one arm at a time.

The types of symptoms that can occur are burning, sharp, stabbing, or shooting pain into your back, hips, and legs in the case of a lumbar (low back) disc herniation.

Or, in the case of a cervical (neck) disc will have these same symptoms into your shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers.

In worse cases this can be accompanied with numbness, tingling, or weakness (if there's spinal nerve compression).

Degenerative Disc Disease

The second type of disc damage is called Degenerative Disc Disease.

This occurs when one or more of your spine’s discs break down due to age and injury.

The unfortunate result, of course is pain.

The problem is, over time, your discs can become worn and lose their rubbery texture, losing its shock absorber qualities, and flexibility.
