About Disc Problems
The term ‘disc’ is short term for the ‘intervertebral discs’, the spongy cushions that differentiate the block-like bones (vertebrae) of the spine. These discs perform a number of important functions including shock absorption, keeping the vertebral column stable and allowing the vertebrae ‘pivot points’ to allow movement.
Disc is formed of two parts: the elastic outer shell (annulus fibrosis) and the jelly-like contents (nucleus pulposis). It can handle a lot of pressure without any damage, but some types of pressure can damage the shell and push its contents out.
Two Main Categories of Disc Problems
1. Degenerative Disc Disease:
If the pain starts within the disc itself, the patient will feel either axial or referred pain. This situation can occur, as part of the aging process in which the discs in the spine start to dry out or start losing space, thereby losing some of their flexibility, movement and shock absorption. As part of this process, the inner part of the disc shrinks, providing less cushioning between the boney vertebrae in the spine, and the outer part of the disc can suffer small tears or loss of bone structure all of which can cause pain.
2. Herniated Disc Disease:
If a disc problem have involvement of nerve root pain, or pain that travels along one of the nerves, which have involved that exits in the spine, it is called radicular pain. It happens when the inner material of the disc, the soft nucleus, leaks out of the disc (or “herniates”) and touches the nerve root. Discs internal material is highly inflammatory, and a slight touch with a nerve can cause pain.
There will pain and other symptoms, such as numbness, tingling or weakness, typically it will travel along the path of the nerve, so that a disc that herniates in the lower part of the spine causes pain along the sciatic nerve through the back of the leg, and a disc that herniates in the cervical spine, mild to severe pain will radiate through the arm.
Symptoms of Disc Problems
Damaged disc shows various symptoms which vary according to its location and severity. Many people who get the scanning done and it shows damaged discs have no symptoms. This leads to the fact that, most commonly, there are no symptoms at all. However, following signs may include:
- Having Back pain
- Pain radiating down the legs with numbness or without it.
- Severe pain associated with bending over or sitting down for a long time
- Severe pain associated with activities like coughing or sneezing
- Numbness or pins like-and-needles like in an arm or leg.
Disc Problem in Ayurveda
Asthi, is the term used to the bone in ayurveda as it is the site of Vata. It helps in movement and also
provide support to the body. But when there is vitiation of Vata due to improper diet and excessive exercise etc., which leads to vitiation of Vata or due to injury too. In old age, bone related problems are more commonly seen in old people, as it is period in which Vata is predominant. As in young age Kapha, middle age pitta is predominant. So due to this vitiated Vata bone (Asthi) lose their flexibility as Vata has the guna of increasing dryness in body and make the bone brittle and weak, loss of interbone cushion leads to pain, tingling sensation and numbness in the body. When vata increase in body and start causing problems in bones and their functioning it is called sandhi-vata, where bones becomes weak, brittle and lose flexibility and condition becomes painful.
In Vata predominant Asthi problems line of treatment in ayurveda is snehan, swedan, Anuvashan basthi and internal medicines are used which pacify Vata.
