Disc Prolapse Treatment in Nagpur

The treatment of disc prolapse, commonly known as a herniated or slipped disc, usually begins with conservative measures. Rest, pain management with over-the-counter or prescription medications, and physical therapy are often recommended to alleviate symptoms. Epidural steroid injections can provide temporary relief from inflammation and pain. In cases where conservative treatments fail, or if there are severe neurological symptoms, surgical options like discectomy or microdiscectomy may be considered to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of the condition and should be determined in consultation with a healthcare professional.

Signs and Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of disc prolapse, often referred to as a herniated or slipped disc, can include:

  • Pain: The most common symptom is localized pain at the site of the affected disc, which can be sharp, shooting, or dull.
  • Radiating pain: Pain may radiate along the nerve path, often down the leg (sciatica) in the case of a lumbar disc or into the arm if it's a cervical disc.
  • Numbness and tingling: Sensations of numbness and tingling may occur in the areas served by the compressed nerve.
  • Muscle weakness: Weakness or diminished reflexes may develop in the affected area, leading to difficulty with movement and muscle control.
  • Aggravation with certain activities: Symptoms may worsen with activities like coughing, sneezing, bending, or lifting heavy objects, which increase pressure on the affected disc.
  • Bowel or bladder dysfunction: In rare and severe cases, there may be problems with bowel or bladder control due to nerve compression in the lower back.
