Ayurvedic Treatment Of Cervical Disc Bulge In Central India

About Cervical Disc Bulge:

Ayurvedic Treatment Of Cervical Disc Bulge In Central India.

The bones (vertebrae) that form the spine in your back are cushioned by round, flat discs. When these discs are healthy, they act as shock absorbers for the spine and keep the spine flexible. If they become damaged, they may bulge abnormally or break open (rupture), in what is called a herniated or slipped disc. Herniated discs can occur in any part of the spine, but they are most common in the neck (cervical) and lower back (lumbar) spine. The seven vertebrae between the head and the chest make up the cervical spine.

Causes Of Cervical Disc Herniation

A herniated disc usually is caused by wear and tear of the disc (also called disc degeneration). As we age, our discs lose some of the fluid that helps them stay flexible. A herniated disc also may result from injuries to the spine, which may cause tiny tears or cracks in the outer layer (annulus or capsule) of the disc. The jellylike material (nucleus) inside the disc may be forced out through the tears or cracks in the capsule, which causes the disc to bulge, break open (rupture), or break into fragments.

Herniated discs are much more common in people who smoke.

  1. Although a Cervical herniated disc may originate from some sort of trauma or injury to the cervical spine, the symptoms develop commonly start spontaneously.
  2. The pain in the arm from a cervical herniated disc results because the herniated disc material ”pinches” or presses over a cervical nerve, causing pain to radiate along the nerve pathway down the arm.


Symptoms Of Cervical Disc Herniation

  1. Along with the arm pain, numbness and tingling can be present down the arm and into the fingertips.
  2. Muscle weakness may also be present due to a cervical herniated disc.
  3. The two most common levels of the cervical spine herniated disc are the C5- C6 level(cervical 5 and Cervical 6) and the C6-C7 level. The next most common is the C4-C5, and rarely the C7- T1 level may herniate.
  4. Brachial neuralgia is a radiating pain n the shoulders and upper arm caused by damage to a nerve in the neck. When it occurs in the left arm, it may be mistaken as a heart attack symptom, causing great concern to the patient.
  5. There are treatment options available for brachial neuralgia, and a patient may meet with physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurologists in the process of evaluating and treating the pain.
  6. it is important o be aware that some treatments may take the time to work, and the process of finding a solution can sometimes be lengthy.
