The spine is made of bones called vertebraes. The space between two vertebrae is filled with a soft material called disc. There are nerves present in close proximity and there are muscles surrounding the spine. People who have weak back muscles tend to have problems in their spine and suffer from chronic back pain or slip disc problem. People having arthritis and office workers in corporate cities like New Delhi and Gurgaon sitting for long hours also tend to have spinal problems including lower back pain. In general language we call it slip disc pain.
The most common cause of chronic back pain that is seen at our hospital in Mohali, Punjab is compression of the nerve root which is caused when a disc slips out of its position. This can be due to disc protruding out of the vertebral space and impinging on nerve root. This back pain can also be due to bone spurs in the vertebrae causing nerve root compression. Nerves are very sensitive and the slightest compression can cause severe back pain which will radiate into the arms or legs. The pain can be in the cervical spine, thoracic spine or the lumbar spine. In case of slip disc in the cervical spine will radiate the pain from neck into the arms while the slip disc causing compression of the nerve root in the lumbar spine will radiate the pain from lower back into the legs.
The back pain should not be ignored as treatment at an early stage is the best way to approach it as it can help you in avoiding spine surgery. As a first step you should consult a spine specialist or a spine surgeon in India who would do a thorough physical examination alongwith a physiotherapist. The cause of the back pain can be conclusively established with the help of MRI Scan which is the best and most sought after modality by spine specialists for all spine related problems. MRI gives clear picture of the vertebrae, disc and the nerves. In early stages, physical therapy and back strengthening exercise can get you pain relief. However if the nerve is severely compressed or in simple words if the slip disc is major then Discectomy Surgery is to be done. This surgery is in the best interest of the patient as it releases the blood flow to the extremities thereby avoiding paralysis.
In this surgery our spine surgeon will remove a part of the vertebrae or the disc whichever is impinging on the nerve. This will relieve the compression on the nerve and provide instant pain relief. The surgery is simple and is done at our hospital by using high resolution endoscope.
