Prolapsed Intervertebral Disc

Intervetebral disc is the structure in between 2 spinal vertebrae to serve shock absorbing and allow movement of back.  Accumulated strain and adapted postures cause wear and tear of the disc and may slip out of the original position. If the slipped disc touches nerve root, symptoms including pain, numbness or even muscle weakness are typical.

Depending on stages of prolapse and severity of nerve root compression, treatment will vary from pain relief, realignment of disc, stretching and muscle strengthening and last but not least postural correction.
