There are many spinal conditions that cause back pain but InformedHealth.org estimated that slipped disc will affect 1 to 5% of all people in the world, at some point in their lives.
Here we’ll talk about how you can treat herniated disc using the (MDA approved) Backrack technology.
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerve fibers that connects your brain to the rest of your body. This cord is housed and protected by the spinal column. The spinal column is in turn a set of vertebrae. These vertebrae are stacked on top of each other and they are around 33 in number. These 33 vertebrae are divided into 3 parts. Seven bones in the Cervical (upper), twelve in the thoracic (middle) and five in the lumbar (lower) region.
All these vertebrae are cushioned with discs between them. The purpose of these discs is to protect the bones and absorb shock generated by daily activities such as walking, running, lifting, etc. The discs have two parts. The inner soft jelly like center and a tougher rubbery exterior.
Disc Conditions and Causes
Weakness or pressure on the spinal column can cause the inner part of the disc to protrude through the outer ring. This causes pain and discomfort in the surrounding area. The condition could become more severe if the disc irritates some part or applies pressure the spinal nerve.
This spinal condition is known as Slipped Disc / Herniated Disc / Bulging Disc. The affected area differs for where the slipped disc has occurred. Depending on the area one may suffer from pain, weakness or numbness in an arm or a leg. Some people do not suffer from symptoms even if they have a slipped disc.
(Slipped disc is also commonly known as herniated disc)
Herniated or Slipped Disc Diagnosis
There are some symptoms to be on the look out for when considering slipped disc.
Some symptoms include:
- Pain in one side of the body
- Pain in a part of a foot, shoulder or arm
- Shooting pain in an arm or leg when you cough
- Muscle weakness
- Numbness and/or tingling
Slipped Disc Treatment Using The Backrack Technology
The Backrack has a very unique shape. It is narrowly designed to copy the shape of the spinal column. The unique frame allows you to place your back on it with minimal to no effort. When you perform few easy Backrack exercises, it starts decompressing your spine so the root cause of pain goes away.
The Backrack works by massaging your back with the special wooden nodules specifically made for the device. With the combination of special Backrack exercises, the slipped disc gets back to its original position leaving you to suffer no more.
