What Is A Slip-Disc (Slipped Disc)?

A slipped disc or slip-disc is a spinal condition where the spinal disc pushes outward, compressing nerves or the spinal cord. Spinal discs are soft rubbery cushions between the spine bones called vertebrae.

The term slip-disc is somewhat misleading because spinal discs don’t slip. However, they bulge, herniate, rupture, prolapse, extrude, or fragment. Nonetheless, the term slip-disc or slipped disc is becoming a common alternative term used by patients. Hence, we will continue our discussions using the actual medical term and the layperson’s terms (slip disc).

types of slipped disc

Slip-disc can be exceedingly painful and limiting if the protruded, bulged, herniated, or slipped disc (slip-disc) presses on the nerves or spinal cord. Contrary to common belief, a slipped disc will not heal independently. Therefore, to recover, you will need targeted corrective care.

We have been treating slipped disc patients successfully in Kuala Lumpur since 2007. We treated children, teenagers, young adults, middle-aged adults, and seniors with over a 90% success rate. Over the years, we have answered numerous questions. Some of the questions posed to us were common.

The most common query that many have asked from us are listed below:

  • What is a spinal disc?
  • What is the cause of a slipped disc?
  • Do herniated discs go away?
  • What are the symptoms of disc problems?
  • What is the best way to diagnose a slipped disc?
  • How long does a slipped disc take to heal?
  • How do you treat spinal disc problems?
  • What makes our treatment better than others?

What Is The Function Of A Spinal Disc?

cross section of spine and spinal disc

Your spinal discs have two main structures, nucleolus pulposus and annular fibrosus. In simple terms, a spinal disc resembles a jelly doughnut, and a jelly-filled center is enclosed or contained by a stronger exterior or surrounding. The nucleolus pulposus part resembles the jelly filling, and the annuals fibrosis lookalike is the doughnut. In short, it has a gel-like interior reinforced and contained with firm attaching fibers.

The spinal disc (intervertebral disc) functions as a shock absorber, ligament, and separator of vertebral bones. In total, 23 discs attach to the vertebrae of the spine, six spinal discs in the neck, 12 in the thoracic or mid-back, and five in the lower back or lumbar spine. The classifications of spinal discs are through their connections to the vertebra above and below. A slip-disc at L4-L5 relates to a herniated or prolapsed disc between your 5th lumbar and the fifth lumbar segment (low back).

CSC in Damansara heights, Sri Petaling, and Bandar Sri Damansara can treat a herniated disc non-invasively through our team of corrective chiropractors and clinical physiotherapists’ clinical efforts. Our teams and breakthrough spine technology provide you with the best slip-disc treatment in Kuala Lumpur today.

What Causes A Disc To Slip, Bulge, Herniated, Or Protrude?

A slipped disc is not a condition that develops overnight. A degenerated disc is a weak disc susceptible to tears, bulging, and herniation (slipped disc). For your vertebral disc to slide or get pushed out (slipped disc), there have to be some degenerative changes (pre-existing damage). Healthy disc doses do not herniate easily. In other words, discs are highly resilient. However, poor posture, muscular or ligamentous weakness and injury diminish nutrient content and flow to a spinal disc. Decreased or reduced blood flow (nutrients) leads to degenerative changes.

Spinal discs are soft and rubbery but sturdy enough to last a lifetime. The protective fibers of the disc are interwoven, crisscrossing one another for stability. A healthy disc’s interwoven threads (strands) can withstand even the most rigorous events. In short, to slip a spinal disc, there have to be certain levels of pre-existing damage.

To conclude, it is impossible to slip (bulge, herniate, protrude, prolapse, or extrude) a healthy disc. Not long ago, researchers attempted to herniate, bulge, or rupture a healthy spinal disc in a laboratory setting. They subjected healthy human spinal discs by loading them with excessive weight.

All of their attempts failed. The vertebral disc remained resilient even when they stressed the spinal discs with enormous amounts of weight not commonly encountered by most.

They concluded it was impossible to herniate a spinal disc (slip a spinal disc). Their published research stated that some levels of damage must be present before a spinal disc can slip or herniate.

Do Herniated Discs Go Away Without Getting Focused Slip-Disc Treatment?

Slip-disc is a significant health condition. If neglected, it can lead to paralysis. A common finding with most slip-disc patients is the fluctuation of symptoms. Some report remission for short or extended periods. However, the fact remains that a slipped disc does not heal on its own.

Although the symptoms may decrease or diminish, they almost always reoccur. The reason for recurrences is the degenerative damage within a disc. Degenerative changes are damages within a disc, and at times they may be severe to the point where discal fibers tear apart. To heal a slip-disc, you will need to treat the actual cause. According to published medical research, spinal disc damage is the root cause of slipped discs.

What Are The Symptoms Of Spinal Disc Problems?

Slipped disc symptoms depend on the severity and location of the slip disc. For some, it is excruciatingly severe. Also, some slipped disc patients remain active with relatively mild to no pain. However, these are rare instances. The most common symptoms of a slipped disc are as follows:

  • Pain in or both sides of the impacted region
  • Tingling and numbness sensations along the spine, arms, fingers, legs, or toes
  • Weakness in the spine, arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Sudden sharp pain with coughing or sneezing
  • Pain with extending, bending, turning, or twisting the neck or low back
  • Weakness or pain in legs when walking or standing
  • Pain when standing from a seated position
  • Discomfort or pain at night during sleep Inability to lift both legs simultaneously.
  • Burning sensations in the shoulder blades, mid-back, or gluts

What Is The Best Way To Diagnose A Slip-Disc?

Doctors diagnosed the slipped disc in the past based on exam findings and patient history. Today, these principles are still in use. However, the best means of diagnosing a slipped disc is through Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI examination. However, patient assessments and testing are a must before an MRI Assessment. Our doctors of chiropractic will carefully take your history and note your symptoms. They will look for the classic signs. We will schedule an MRI assessment if the classic signs are indicative of a slipped disc.

A classic sign of a slipped disc is discomfort or pain when coughing or sneezing. An excellent indication of a slipped disc in the low back is an inability to lift both legs or discomfort when lifting legs while lying on your back.

For the neck, the hallmark is pain or discomfort in the upper back, top of the shoulder, or arms when tilting the head and neck backward. After diagnosing you with a slipped disc, our clinical teams will thoroughly explain your non-surgical option. Rest assured, our centers provide the best slip-disc treatment in Kuala Lumpur. We can help you recover without injections or surgery. 

How Long Does A Slipped Disc Take To Heal?

Pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness resulting from compression of the spinal nerves or spinal cord is common in slipped disc patients. It is possible to reverse the impact of a slipped disc and nerve compression with corrective therapy approaches. With proper care, recovery should occur quite fast. The patient would notice improvements within the first week of care. Healing may take 6-8 weeks, depending on the extent of the damage.

How Is A Slip Disc Treated? Where To Get The Best Slip-Disc Treatment In Kuala Lumpur?

There is a suggestion that a slipped disc can resolve without any specific treatments. The truth is that a slipped disc or slip-disc is a critical condition that needs urgent care. Waiting for it to heal on its own will only worsen matters. However, there are certain things that you may do to alleviate the pain. Please remember that the suggestions below can help with the symptoms and pain, but you’ll need CSC’s corrective slip-disc treatment to fix them.

Things you can do to help relieve the pain of a slipped disc:

  • Rest and avoidance of aggravating activities
  • Cryotherapy, icing the neck or back for 10-15 minutes every two hours during the day.
  • Anti-inflammatory medications (NSAID or Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs)
  • Decrease prolonged sitting or standing

What to do at home, let’s go over things you should avoid:

  • Avoid any bending, twisting, or rotating activities
  • Decrease prolonged sitting or standing
  • Avoid heat. Heat can make the muscles relax; however it will increase swelling.
  • Do not carry bags, luggage, or weights over 3 kilograms.
  • Do not get massages on the spine. Pushing or deep myofascial release directly onto the spine or glutes can further increase inflammatory processes.
  • Avoid long drives.

How Do You Treat Spinal Disc Problems? Who Has The Best Slipped Disk Treatment In Kuala Lumpur?

Spinal problems such as slipped discs need holistic (comprehensive) therapy or treatments. We mentioned earlier that a slipped disc occurs when the spinal disc is damaged. What we have yet to cover thus far is the fact that spinal disc damage is a multifaceted issue. Multi-faceted problems are those that have more than one aspect or cause. The majority of slipped disc patients will have accompanying muscle issues, ligament issues, joint issues, and nerve issues. A bulging or herniated disc (slipped disc) is usually the last problem that surfaces. Thus, the need for comprehensive therapy options that repair and fixes all root causes.

The typical chiropractic or regular physiotherapy treatment can help decrease some symptoms. However, general physiotherapy or standard chiropractic treatments fail to address a slipped disc’s multifaceted aspect comprehensively.

Targeted corrective care for joints, muscles, ligaments and spinal discs is essential to holistic therapy options. There are no shortcuts.
