BACK ACHE/LUMBAGO/SLIP DISK :
Are you the type who has difficulty in getting up from a seat due to pain and stiffness in the back?.Having difficulty in turning sides in bed due to pain in the back? you could be suffering from Lumbago...

What is lumbago/back ache?
Our spine comprises of mainly the bones (vertebrae), the disks and the spinal cord .Bones (vertebrae) are stacked one on top of each other to form the backbone. Through these vertebrae passes the spinal cord .Discs are a kind of cushions that are positioned between two vertebrae. They act as shock absorber in the spine. These disks are round and flat in shape and are made up of tough outer covering which surrounds a jelly like material called nucleus.

Although the slipping of the disc can be triggered due to a trauma like over stretching or lifting weight etc. It is difficult to pinpoint one single cause for this kind of disc problem. This problem often occurs out of gradual degeneration of the disk and is related to the aging process. Gradually over a period of time, as we age, the discs loose their water content and both the outer shell as well as the inner nucleus becomes stiffer and brittle.

As the discs wear out, their outer covering becomes more prone to getting torn. It is when the outer covering of the discs that get torn and the nucleus moves out to irritate the nerve passing by, that the pain occurs. The pain can occur in back, hips or even legs. In severe cases relentless pain can occur even with simple movements causing one to lie down in one position for hours and days at a time. pain can sometimes radiate down the legs and this is called sciatica. Although the slipped disk can occur anywhere in the backbone, the lumbar (lower back area) is more prone for this kind of disk.
