Low Back Pain due to Slipped Disc in Malaysia

Disc damage or slipped disc/slip disc can be one of the diagnoses for neck or low back pain. There are different types of disc damage that can result in pain such as ruptured or herniated disc, degenerated disc, excessive torsional injury and compression injury of the disc. Most of the disc injuries involve damages and abnormalities not only the disc, but also the soft tissue structures around the disc.

Excessive rotational or torsional stress may cause injury to the facet joints, the annulus fibrosus, or most commonly both. The annulus fibrosus is under maximal stress when the disc is being loaded in a bent and twisted position. Therefore, people who always injured their back when they lift heavy objects in a forward bending position with the upper body rotating to one side.

Repetitive torsional injury to the disc may lead to tears seen on MRI. Annulus fibrosus with tears are more susceptible to nucleus pulposus herniation. An inflammatory reaction may be provoked in response to the annular tear and this will result in pain from chemical irritation. This chemical nociception normally presents as a diffuse back pain that may or may not be referred to the lower limbs. Any movement of the lumbar spine, especially forward bending and twisted, can aggravate the lower back pain from excessive rotational stress.

Best Slipped Disc (Slip Disc) Treatment Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Many years ago, the intervertebral disc (Spinal Disc) was thought to have no nerve supply and therefore incapable of producing pain when irritated or damage. However, recent research has shown that the outer one-third or sometimes the outer half of the posterior annulus fibrosus is innervated by sensory nerves. Therefore, the outer layer of the posterior annulus fibrosus is capable of producing pain when it is damaged or irritated. Learn more about slipped disc or disc bulge

Traditionally, there were two major types of disc injury which can result in local spinal pain with or without radicular signs and symptoms. One of the injuries is disc herniation or extrusion. Disc herniation occurs when the center nucleus pulposus is no longer contained by the outer annulus fibrosus and is extruded through a tear in the annulus fibrosus. Nerve root impingements and spinal canal encroachment can happen as a result of disc herniation. The other type of injuries is known as degeneration of the disc. Disc space narrowing, vertebral endplates degenerative changes and bone spur formation are the common imaging findings of disc degeneration. All these degenerative changes can result in the spinal canal or neural foraminal narrowing. Nerve root impingement or irritation due to spinal canal or neural foraminal encroachment can lead to pain and paresthesia at the site of injury.

According to the recent research, a disc without herniation or degeneration is capable producing pain. This discogenic pain can be a result of torsional injury or compression injury of the annulus fibrosus. Traditionally, many that have a slipped disc (slip disc) are encouraged to have surgical interventions. While surgical centers and surgeons prefer surgical treatments, it might be better for you to avoid surgery as surgery has failed to show lasting improvements.

Hip Pain and Lower Back Pain Treatment in Kuala Lumpur

The Chiropractors and Physiotherapists of Chiropractic Specialty Center offer the best and most comprehensive hip pain and ower back pain treatment in Kuala Lumpur. Their treatments are better as they identify the source of your hip and low back pain and then get busy fixing them. The key to recovery is targeted treatments that fix issues that caused your pain in the first place. Best of all, the care you get is painless and through technology that others do not have.

Low back pain can be coming from the structures in the lumbar spine or referred from the adjacent joints such as the hip joint. A detailed examination of the hip joint in patients with low back pain is necessary to rule out abnormalities of the hip joint such as labral tears, rim lesions and osteoarthritic changes in the joint. Abnormalities of the hip joint may present as low back pain, or both the hip joint and lumbar spine can be the primary sources that contribute to the lower back pain. Therefore, both conditions that coexist must be managed and treated at the same time to achieve maximum medical improvement in the shortest period of time.

Any structures of the lumbar spine that are capable of producing pain are called nociceptive (pain-producing) structures. Vertebral venous plexus, dura mater, ligaments of the vertebral arches, muscles, and fascia, vertebral bodies, laminae, apophyseal joints, and annulus fibrosus of the intervertebral disc are the common structures that can result in low back pain when these structures are being irritated.

Irritation and damage of the intervertebral disc and facet joints are the most common causes of lower back pain. However, as the condition progresses, abnormalities of the adjacent soft tissues must be considered as the sources of lower back pain. Abnormalities of the ligaments of the intervertebral joints, muscles, fascias, and neural structures must be taken into consideration when treating chronic lower back pain.

Chiropractic and Physiotherapy for Low Back Pain

Spondylolysis or stress fracture of the pars inter-articularis is commonly seen in athletes who involve in gymnastics, fast bowling (cricket), throwing sports and tennis due to repeated hyperextension with or without rotation of the body. Fracture of the pars inter-articularis on both sides can result in spondylolisthesis, slipping of the vertebra over another segment. Spinal canal stenosis is more commonly seen in older patients and they often complain of pain aggravated by walking and relieved by rest. Examination of the hip joint must be included for lower back patients as abnormalities of the hip joint such as labral tears or joint contracture may present with signs and symptoms similar to lower back pain with radicular pain in the leg.

There are a few anatomical structures in the lumbar spine which are capable of producing pain when they are damaged or irritated. These include nucleus pulposus, annulus fibrosus, facet joints, ligaments, muscles, nerve and synovium that are found in the lumbar spine. Health care practitioners should be able to identify more than one abnormality in these structures when a person presents with low back pain.

People who are aged between 20 and 50 have an increased risk of lower back pain. There is a higher incidence of low back pain and sciatica in smokers compared to non-smokers. People working in a field that requires a lot of physical demand that involves bending or twisting are more prone to lower back pain. Physical work with high exposure to vibration can lead to increased risk of low back pain and sciatica. However, sedentary occupation with long hours sitting or standing also showed a higher percentage of low back pain.

Spinal Disc Treatment and Chiropractic in Malaysia

Spinal discs are one of the joints that contribute to the movements yet provide stability to a functional spinal unit. One functional spinal unit consists of two adjacent spinal vertebrae, the intervertebral disc and surrounding soft tissues (e.g. ligaments) that connect them together. Spinal discs are made up of the inner nucleus pulposus, outer annular fibrosus and cartilaginous endplates at the top and bottom surfaces that are in contact with the adjacent vertebra.

The matrix of the nucleus pulposus is mainly water, collagens, and proteoglycans. As the nucleus pulposus is mostly made up of water, it can distribute forces evenly in all dimension when the weight is being placed on it. The annulus fibrosus contains layers of lamellae and collagen fibers. This multi-layered annulus fibrosus aligned in various angles provide the tensile strength and flexibility to the spinal columns. The cartilaginous endplates of the adjacent vertebrae are rich in microscopic blood vessels that supply nutrients to the spinal discs.

Degenerative changes in the intervertebral disc are shown to occur in the early decades of life. As the disc degenerates, there can be significant variations in the structures of the intervertebral disc, associated ligamentous damage and structural alterations in the spinal columns. These degenerative changes can lead to severe neck or back pain with or without radiculopathies such as numbness, tingling sensation, and weakness. If degenerative disc disease is not properly care for, it will lead to slipped disc.

If you happen to be the unlucky person who suffers from a slipped disc, worry not as we have the perfect solution for you. Our methods of integrative treatments and technology can reverse even a severe slipped disc. Find out about your non-surgical solution that the surgeon did not mention today.
