<1>What Causes Spinal Disc to get Damage?

Spinal discs are made up of two structures; an inner part and the outer part. The inner part (nucleus pulposus) is considered the heart of the spinal disc. The nucleus pulposus is water, collagens, and proteoglycans. As such, it is a jell-like in structure. It is the main structures that provide mobility and weight-bearing. Another critical function of the nucleus pulposus is to synthesis vital compounds need for daily repairs of the spinal. The current fibers or part is called the annulus fibrosus. The annulus fibrosis is made of cartilage, which is firmer in structures when compared to the nucleus pulposus.

Spinal discs provide three vital functions:
  1. Attaches the bones of the spine (vertebrae) together
  2. Provides weight-bearing
  3. Allows mobility
Spinal discs are essential to functional spine segments or units. Functional spinal units contribute to the movements and provide stability and weight-bearing. A functional spinal unit consists of two adjacent spinal vertebrae and the intervertebral disc (spinal disc). Functional units or segments are further supported with surrounding soft tissues (e.g., ligaments) that connect them together.

What are the Characteristics of the Spinal Disc Structures?

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.

How are the Spinal Discs Damaged?

how a spinal disc gets damaged

Spinal disc damage occurs when the nucleus pulposus is unable to synthesize the need compounds for daily repairs and maintenance of the spinal discs. Your spinal discs need specialized compounds to maintain health. These are the proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are the chondroitin and glucosamine products that all joints, ligaments, and soft tissues need for repair and maintenance. These are abundant compounds that the body makes daily. They can also be supplemented. Proteoglycans are readily available in the blood. However, these are rather large compounds, and their size makes it difficult to penetrate into the disc. Therefore, the spinal discs have to make enough proteoglycans to maintain proper function and health. 

What are Preoteogylcans and how they can help with Damaged Spinal discs?

To make sufficient quantities of proteoglycans, the disc needs ample flow of nutrients. However, poor sitting postures, prolonged sitting, excessive bending or twisting at the waist increased the pressure inside the disc. With increased disc pressure, the flow of nutrients is decreased. The nutrient flow decreases, so do the spinal discs' ability to make the essential proteoglycans. As cush, the spinal disc starts to degenerate. A degenerated disc is a damaged disc. A damaged disc is the primary reason why you end with slipped discs in your neck, upper back, mid nack or the low back.

What is the earliest stage at which a spinal disc gets damaged?

Spinal disc damage as such Degenerative changes in the intervertebral disc is 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 adequately cared for, it will lead to slipped disc.
