Treatment Choices
for Slip Disc at
Gokuldas Hospital
Each disc comprises a strong outer ring
and a softer, gel-like inner core. When the
inner part comes out through the outer
ring due to injury or weakness, it results in
what’s commonly referred to as a slipped,
herniated, or prolapsed disc. This
condition often triggers discomfort and
pain.
Should the slipped disc exert pressure on
a spinal nerve, you might additionally
encounter numbness and pain along the
nerve’s pathway. In more serious cases,
surgical intervention may be necessary to
either repair or remove the slipped disc.
While playing or carrying out some
extraneous activities, the chances of
slipping one of the discs increase.
What is a
Slip Disc?
A slipped disc, or herniated disc, occurs
when the soft tissue between spinal bones
ruptures, leading to the inner gel pressing
on nerves. This results in pain, numbness,
or weakness in the affected area.
Treatment involves rest, therapy, or in
severe cases, surgery to relieve pressure
on nerves.
What are the
symptoms of a
Slip Disc?
Since our spinal cord extends
from the neck to the lower
back, there are numerous
capillaries and blood vessels
that rupture due to slipped
discs.
Pain:
Often felt on one side of the
body, in the lower back,
buttocks, legs, or feet. The pain
can be sharp or dull and may
worsen with certain
movements like bending,
lifting, or twisting.
Some prominent
symptoms of slip disc:
Numbness or Tingling:
Sensations of pins and
needles, numbness, or
tingling in the affected area,
commonly extending down
the leg.
Muscle Weakness: Weakness
in certain muscles,
particularly in the legs or
feet, making it difficult to lift
or move them.
Changes in Reflexes: A
slipped disc might affect
reflexes, leading to
diminished reflex responses,
particularly in the knees or
ankles.
Difficulty Walking or Standing:
Pain and discomfort might
make it hard to walk, stand, or
sit for extended periods.
Radiating Pain: Pain might
radiate along the nerve path,
causing discomfort in various
areas of the body.
Pain Aggravation: Coughing,
sneezing, or even sitting for a
prolonged period may exacerbate
the pain due to increased pressure
on the affected area.
The pain that follows a slipped disc
is an excruciating one. Hence,
doctors at Gokuldas recommend
prompt treatment of the same
within the time limit to live an easy
life ahead.
Treatment
Options
Available for
Slip Disc
When the soft inner core of a spinal disc
pushes through a weakened area in the
disc’s outer layer, often pressing on nearby
nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or
weakness in the affected area. Fortunately,
several treatment options are available,
including both non-invasive and surgical
approaches, often supported by
radiological imaging for accurate diagnosis
and monitoring by Gokuldas. Let’s delve
into these treatment avenues:
Non-Invasive
Treatment
Options:
Medication and Rest:
• Pain Relievers: Over-the-counter
medications such as acetaminophen or
NSAIDs can help manage mild to
moderate pain caused by a slipped disc.
They work by reducing inflammation
around the affected area, providing
relief.
• Muscle Relaxants: Prescribed to
alleviate muscle spasms that often
accompany disc herniation, reducing
discomfort and allowing for better
mobility.
Physical Therapy:
• Exercise Programs: Physical therapy
involves a tailored exercise regimen
focusing on strengthening core
muscles and improving flexibility.
Core stability exercises, stretches,
and aerobic conditioning can
significantly reduce pressure on the
affected disc and alleviate symptoms
over time.
• Manual Therapy: Chiropractic
adjustments, massage therapy, or
spinal manipulation performed by
qualified professionals can help
relieve pain and improve spinal
alignment.
Steroid Injections:
• Epidural Injections:
Administered directly into the affected area
of the spine, these injections contain
corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and
alleviate pain. They are often used when
oral medications or physical therapy fail to
provide sufficient relief.
Surgical
Treatment
Options:
Micro discectomy:
• A minimally invasive surgical procedure
where a small portion of the herniated
disc material pressing on the nerve root
is removed. This surgery aims to relieve
pressure on the nerve and reduce
associated symptoms like pain and
numbness.
Artificial Disc Replacement:
• This surgical option involves replacing
the damaged disc with an artificial
one, preserving spinal motion while
alleviating nerve compression. It’s an
alternative to traditional spinal fusion
surgery.
Laminectomy:
• Involves the removal of a portion of the
vertebral bone (lamina) to create more
space for the nerves in the spinal canal.
This decompression surgery is often
recommended for severe cases of nerve
compression due to a slipped disc.
Role of Radiology Services by Gokuldas in
Diagnosing and Treating Slipped Discs:
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): This
cutting-edge facility of Gokuldas enables
us to capture intricate images of virtually
every structure and organ within the body.
Offering a closer examination of organs,
muscles, blood vessels, and bones,
significantly aids in the timely diagnosis of
various life-threatening health conditions.
Additionally, it is completely free of
radiation and pain, ensuring a comfortable
experience for patients.
CT (Computed Tomography) Scan: CT scans
offer detailed cross-sectional images of the
spine, aiding in assessing both bone and
soft tissue structures. They are particularly
useful in surgical planning, providing
detailed 3D images for surgeons to
precisely visualize the affected area.
The Bottom Line
With a focus on accurate diagnosis
supported by advanced radiological
imaging techniques like digital X-rays, MRI,
and CT scans, Gokuldas Hospital offers a
comprehensive array of treatment options
for slipped discs.
With a commitment to timely and
tailored interventions, Gokuldas
Hospitals not only addresses the
immediate challenges posed by slip
disc conditions but also focuses on
long-term well-being. Trust in
Gokuldas for a holistic approach to
slip disc care, combining cutting-edge
technology with compassionate and
expert medical attention.

Treatment Choices for Slip Disc at Gokuldas Hospital

  • 1. Treatment Choices for Slip Disc at Gokuldas Hospital
  • 2. Each disc comprises a strong outer ring and a softer, gel-like inner core. When the inner part comes out through the outer ring due to injury or weakness, it results in what’s commonly referred to as a slipped, herniated, or prolapsed disc. This condition often triggers discomfort and pain.
  • 3. Should the slipped disc exert pressure on a spinal nerve, you might additionally encounter numbness and pain along the nerve’s pathway. In more serious cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to either repair or remove the slipped disc. While playing or carrying out some extraneous activities, the chances of slipping one of the discs increase.
  • 5. A slipped disc, or herniated disc, occurs when the soft tissue between spinal bones ruptures, leading to the inner gel pressing on nerves. This results in pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. Treatment involves rest, therapy, or in severe cases, surgery to relieve pressure on nerves.
  • 6. What are the symptoms of a Slip Disc?
  • 7. Since our spinal cord extends from the neck to the lower back, there are numerous capillaries and blood vessels that rupture due to slipped discs.
  • 8. Pain: Often felt on one side of the body, in the lower back, buttocks, legs, or feet. The pain can be sharp or dull and may worsen with certain movements like bending, lifting, or twisting. Some prominent symptoms of slip disc:
  • 9. Numbness or Tingling: Sensations of pins and needles, numbness, or tingling in the affected area, commonly extending down the leg.
  • 10. Muscle Weakness: Weakness in certain muscles, particularly in the legs or feet, making it difficult to lift or move them.
  • 11. Changes in Reflexes: A slipped disc might affect reflexes, leading to diminished reflex responses, particularly in the knees or ankles.
  • 12. Difficulty Walking or Standing: Pain and discomfort might make it hard to walk, stand, or sit for extended periods. Radiating Pain: Pain might radiate along the nerve path, causing discomfort in various areas of the body.
  • 13. Pain Aggravation: Coughing, sneezing, or even sitting for a prolonged period may exacerbate the pain due to increased pressure on the affected area. The pain that follows a slipped disc is an excruciating one. Hence, doctors at Gokuldas recommend prompt treatment of the same within the time limit to live an easy life ahead.
  • 15. When the soft inner core of a spinal disc pushes through a weakened area in the disc’s outer layer, often pressing on nearby nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. Fortunately, several treatment options are available, including both non-invasive and surgical approaches, often supported by radiological imaging for accurate diagnosis and monitoring by Gokuldas. Let’s delve into these treatment avenues:
  • 17. Medication and Rest: • Pain Relievers: Over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen or NSAIDs can help manage mild to moderate pain caused by a slipped disc. They work by reducing inflammation around the affected area, providing relief. • Muscle Relaxants: Prescribed to alleviate muscle spasms that often accompany disc herniation, reducing discomfort and allowing for better mobility.
  • 18. Physical Therapy: • Exercise Programs: Physical therapy involves a tailored exercise regimen focusing on strengthening core muscles and improving flexibility. Core stability exercises, stretches, and aerobic conditioning can significantly reduce pressure on the affected disc and alleviate symptoms over time.
  • 19. • Manual Therapy: Chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, or spinal manipulation performed by qualified professionals can help relieve pain and improve spinal alignment.
  • 20. Steroid Injections: • Epidural Injections: Administered directly into the affected area of the spine, these injections contain corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. They are often used when oral medications or physical therapy fail to provide sufficient relief.
  • 22. Micro discectomy: • A minimally invasive surgical procedure where a small portion of the herniated disc material pressing on the nerve root is removed. This surgery aims to relieve pressure on the nerve and reduce associated symptoms like pain and numbness.
  • 23. Artificial Disc Replacement: • This surgical option involves replacing the damaged disc with an artificial one, preserving spinal motion while alleviating nerve compression. It’s an alternative to traditional spinal fusion surgery. Laminectomy: • Involves the removal of a portion of the vertebral bone (lamina) to create more space for the nerves in the spinal canal. This decompression surgery is often recommended for severe cases of nerve compression due to a slipped disc.
  • 24. Role of Radiology Services by Gokuldas in Diagnosing and Treating Slipped Discs:
  • 25. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): This cutting-edge facility of Gokuldas enables us to capture intricate images of virtually every structure and organ within the body. Offering a closer examination of organs, muscles, blood vessels, and bones,
  • 26. significantly aids in the timely diagnosis of various life-threatening health conditions.
