Ayurvedic Treatment for Slip Disc

Spinal disc herniation, also known as a slipped disc, is a medical condition affecting the spine in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an inter-vertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings. Symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location of the herniation and the types of soft tissue that become involved.


Causes of Slip Disc

Disc Bulge

Reasons for a slip disc will vary from person to person. The doctor will examine the patient to ascertain the exact cause for the problem. Consequently, the ayurvedic treatment for disc bulge and slip disc will differ depending on the cause.


The causes for slip disc are:

  • Aging – The disc has an outer strong portion that contains the inner portion. It can become weak with age and the inner portion may expand outwards. This is called disc degeneration. The wear and tear owing to the long years of functioning of the disc may cause disc degeneration.
  • Incorrect Posture While Lifting Objects – People don’t give adequate importance to ensuring safety of backbone when they lift heavy objects. As a result, the load of the heavy object will be directly affecting the disc and can lead to slip disc or disc prolapse. People employed in lifting and loading jobs are more prone to this.
  • Obesity – Obese people must require additional muscle strength to support their body. As they may be lacking it, the load will be directly on discs. This is another cause for slip disc and disc prolapse.
  • Fall or Shock – Although, not so common, fall or shock that impact the disc area directly, can cause slip disc. It will damage the exterior strong portion of the disc and can result in the inner portion bulging out.
