Slipped disc and astrology.
Astrology of slipped disc.
The pain of a slipped (or herniated) disc can be debilitating, and further spinal disc damage may be irreversible.
Under stress, a disc's inner material may swell, pushing through its tough outer membrane. The entire disc becomes distorted. All or part of the core material protrudes through the outer casing at a weak spot, pressing against surrounding nerves. If further activity or injury causes the membrane to rupture or tear, the disc material can injure the spinal cord or the nerves that radiate from it. This causes extreme debilitating pain. It's an unmistakable signal to stop all movement immediately. Further disc damage may be irreversible. In some instances the injured disc itself is the source of pain.
The vast majority of disc injuries occur in the lumbar region of the lower back. Only 10% of these injuries affect the upper spine. However not all slipped discs press on nerves, and it is entirely possible to have deformed discs without any pain or discomfort.
Slipped discs are most common in men and women between 30 and 50 years old, although they also occur in active children and young adults. Older people, whose discs no longer have fluid cores, are much less likely to encounter the problem. People who do regular moderate exercise are much less likely to have disc problems than sedentary adults. People who exercise tend to stay flexible considerably longer.
Slipped Disk Overview
The disks are protective shock-absorbing pads between the bones of the spine (vertebrae). The disks of the spine are also referred to as intervertebral disks. Although they do not actually "slip," a disk may move, split, or rupture. This can cause the disk cartilage and nearby tissue to fail (herniate), allowing the inner gel portion of the disk to escape into the surrounding tissue. This leaking jelly-like substance can place pressure on the spinal cord or on an adjacent nerve to cause symptoms of pain, numbness, or weakness either around the damaged disk or anywhere along the area supplied by that nerve.
Many people experience no symptoms from a herniated disk, and the majority of people who have herniated disks do not need surgery.
The layman's term "slipped disk" is, therefore, a misnomer and actually refers to a condition whereby portions of an abnormal, injured, or degenerated disk have protruded against adjacent nerve tissues. This condition is also known as a herniated disk, ruptured disk, or prolapsed disk. The most frequently affected area is in the low back, but any disk can rupture, including those in the neck.
