What is a Slip Disc?

Our spine is made of discs that are made of outer and inner rings. When an outer ring gets torn or weak, the inner ring slips out of it. This condition is called a slip disc or herniated disc.

Is there a way to avoid getting a slip disc?

Absolutely! Exercising, maintaining a healthy weight and leading an active lifestyle goes a long way in keeping back problems away. Having a correct posture while sitting, walking and especially while lifting weights is also important. These simple things can keep you away from a slip disc.

What will happen if I ignore a slip disc?

If you have mild pain which does not bother you, you can ignore it. However, if the symptoms worsen, its best to take doctor’s advice. Ignoring symptoms can lead to complications such as severe pain, incontinence or even complete loss of sensation in the lower body.

  • A small incision is made in the back or neck

  • A tiny camera is inserted into the incision

  • The camera footage is visible on a screen that guides the doctor to perform the surgery

  • The lamina is partially or completely removed

  • The incisions are closed and the patient is taken to the recovery area.

What is spinal fusion? How is it done?

Depending on which disc in the spine is damaged, the doctor will recommend if patient can undergo spinal fusion surgery. In this procedure, two bones in the spine are joined by screws to stabilise the spine and relieve pain.

Flow of the procedure:

  • Patient is given general anaesthesia for the procedure

  • The doctor performs the surgery from the front or from the back depending on the location of the disc

  • So, the doctor makes an incision in the front or back and reaches into the spine

  • A screw, rod or a piece of bone is placed to fuse the damaged part of the spine

  • The incisions are closed and the patient is taken to the recovery room

Can a slip disc recur after surgery?

There is a possibility that the slip disc symptoms don’t go away even after surgery. This happens especially in cases where the patient does not take adequate care after surgery. Exercising, physiotherapy and avoiding overuse, lifting weights and maintaining right posture after the surgery are all very important. Not taking care of these might result in recurrence of the problem.
