What is disc prolapse?
PIVD is protrusion of pulpy inner material of an intervertebral disc through the fibrous outer coat causing pressure on adjoining nerve roots, ligaments etc. The spine or back bone is comprised of number of vertebrae which are placed over one another with support of inter vertebral disc. The disc is filled with a pulpy matter surrounded by a fibrous sheath. When the gap between two vertebrae is reduced due to some external or internal reason the inner matter is compressed and prolapsed at a soft part of the sheath. That causes pressure over the adjoining nerve roots and ligaments giving rise to pain, low back pain, sciatica pain, lumbar pain, lumbar spondylosis, stiffness, swelling, numbness, dysfunction, muscle wasting, burning sensation etc.
What causes disc compression and disc prolapse?
The causes of disc compression can be divided into external and internal type. The external cause includes trauma which is a common feature in athletes, workers, trekkers. The internal cause includes overweight, less toned (hypo toned) muscle, thin body, hyper function of back bone, abnormal growth in vertebral spine etc.
The total process may give rise to different phenomena called stenosis, bulging, thecal sac compression, cauda equina syndrome, herniation, prolapse, protrusion etc.
Signs and symptoms of PIVD:
The patient will complain of pain in low back or hip that radiates to leg (up to the ankle joint) through the sciatic nerve. This is called sciatic pain. The patient may experience numbness, loss of sensation, tingling pain, in the leg and foot. Pain may be unilateral or bilateral.
