SLIPPED DISC

SLIPPED DISC

WHAT IS A HERNIATED DISC OR SLIPPED DISC?

The bones that form the spine, called vertebrae, are cushioned by discs and it’s these discs that allow your back to be flexible and absorb impacts. A herniated disc — which is also referred to as a “slipped disc” and can affect one or many discs — occurs when some of the softer jelly part of the disc (know as the nucleus pulposus) pushes out through a weak spot in the tougher outer ring (know as the Annulus fibrosus) of the disc.

Herniated discs most commonly occur in the discs that are found between the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae, the five vertebrae between the rib cage and the pelvis which are the largest segments of the vertebral column.

The bulge that’s created by this pressure on the outer ring can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. When a nerve root is irritated, there may be pain, numbness, and weakness in one or both of your legs.

WHAT CAUSES A HERNIATED DISC?

A herniated disc is caused by a lack of water inside the disc, which is often due to the natural effects of aging. As we get older, the amount of water in the discs decreases and they become less flexible. The discs shrink and the spaces between the vertebrae narrow making them more prone to herniation.

That said there are some risk factors that can also have a damaging impact on the discs and accelerate this process. They include:
– using your back rather than your legs to carry heavy objects
– being overweight, which places added strain on your back
– repetitive movements
– inactivity
– smoking

There’s also a correlation between patients who suffer from herniated discs and bad posture. Hunching over places added pressure on the discs which over time will damage them. Good posture is, therefore, crucicial in the prevention of herniated discs.

WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS?
  • Anti-inflammatory medication will ease the pain but that is not a long-term solution to the problem because taking medication regularly can also have a negative effect on your body. An injection of a cortisone-like drug into the space around the nerve may provide short-term pain relief by reducing inflammation. However, both these treatments can be dangerous for your long-term recovery because while the pain subsides you may also have a tendency to forget about the importance of maintaining good posture.
  • Physiotherapy and osteopathy are the only treatments that work long-term. However, these types of therapy require a lot of time and effort.
  • Surgery is also an option which requires an operation to treat the source of the problem. It’s an invasive procedure which will also have an impact on the entire body. And the chances of suffering a relapse are quite high.

AND WHAT ABOUT MORE NATURAL TREATMENTS?

If you are suffering from a herniated disc there are two main reasons:
– Aging discs
– Pressure on those discs
The best solution to prevent these two things is to ensure that you maintain good posture at all times.
Good posture helps improve the supply of oxygen and water to the discs which in turn prevent premature aging. Good posture will also reduce pressure on the discs.

THE PERCKO SOLUTION

We spent 12 months in research and development to create a product that is designed and proven to help you maintain good posture and provide a long-term solution for a variety of back pains including slipped discs.

Patented technology built into the fabric of the Percko undershirts specifically targets the shoulders and lower back, providing stimulated support to the areas that need it most.

As soon as you slouch into a bad posture position you’ll feel the shirt’s tensor systems start to work, gently encouraging you to stand up straighter and help your spine find a more natural curved position.

The Percko shirt stimulates muscles in the back and helps you build up natural strength required to maintain good posture, which reduces the risk of causing a herniated disc.
