Disc Problems in Denver CO
How Does This Happen?
Discal problems, or the so-called “slipped disc”, can occur due to various causes;such as wear and tear, bending, twisting, whiplash, lifting improperly, coughing, sneezing, and straining to defecate.
What Can I do To Help Myself?
Change what you’re doing and avoid activities that aggravate your condition. Specifically, you may benefit from walking, ice, hot moist heat, and stretching. Never place the ice directly on your skin. Avoid straining to defecate, which can aggravate the lower back, eat prunes or other high-fiber foods, and drink lots of water.
It’s Still Bothering Me, Now What?
Left uncared for, discal problems can lead to degenerative disc disease. This condition refers to an actual breakdown of the discal materials that make up the spine. This can lead to permanent damage to the spine and nervous system.
