Effectiveness of Back Support Belt in Prolapsed Disc

Ap prolapsed disc, which is also known as a slipped disc or more commonly as a herniated disc is a back deformity. A herniated disc is often the cause for severe lower back pain. The spinal disc does not actually slip out, but it presses on nerves and that causes irritation and pain. In rare cases the pressure on the nerve may cause pain and other symptoms in the leg. A prolapsed disc most commonly develops in a person that is between 30 and 50 years old.

Prolapsed Disc

The spine is made up of many bones called vertebrae. Each vertebra is separated by a disc. The disc is made of a rubbery material which gives the spine its flexibility. This structure is responsible for housing and protecting the spinal cord and the nerves that are connected to the brain.

Many times, because of external pressure and other variables the spine deforms. This may be due to certain work conditions or exercises, or it may simply be a natural occurrence. The spine can get shortened, its shape can change, it may become misaligned, and in the case of a prolapsed disc the discs can budge out, pinching the nervous system.

Risk Factors

Some of these risk factors have been identified for prolapsed discs. However, these may not hold true for all.

  • Lifting a lot of heavy weights (as a sport or for work)
  • Sitting for a long time (such as working at a desk of working in a job that involves frequent and long-distance driving)
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Age


  • Back Pain is one of the main symptoms. The pain comes suddenly and is eased by lying back. Movement, coughing or sneezing worsens the condition.
  • Sciatica is another symptom. This pain is not felt in the back, but it is felt in the leg. The reason being that the disc applies pressure on the nerve root. Pain caused by sciatica can vary from mild to severe. This pain is often described as a burning feeling or sensation.
  • Nerve Root Pain is also experienced by people suffering from prolapsed discs. While sciatica is caused by the pinching of the sciatic nerve, other nerves may also be affected. This causes symptoms like pins and needles or numbness in a leg, foot or buttock. The region that is being affected varies depending on the nerves that have been affected.
