"What is Disc Pain - Causes & Treatment"

Disc pain refers to a symptom of back pain caused by an intervertebral disc. In the human spine you have 24 vertabrae with an intervertebral "disc" between each. A disc may have an impact on pain-sensitive structures like ligaments and nerve roots. Disc pain is often a source of neck and back pain.

Disc pain is usually a result of a herniated or bulging disc. These conditions can cause symptoms of pain, numbness and/or muscle weakness.

Acute & Chronic Disc Pain

Most acute back pain conditions (conditions between 0 and three weeks) resolve spontaneously without much intervention or treatment.  In fact, 40 to 90% of most cases may initially resolve prior to three months. 

Chronic back pain conditions (these are conditions lasting longer than three months) have been scientifically validated to be caused primarily by either:

  1.  Disc Pain - A painful intervertebral disc that is either bulging or herniated.
  2. A diseased or dysfunctional facet joint.
  3. A diseased or dysfunctional Sacro-iliac joint.

In either case, acute or chronic, when disc pain relief is sought, it is done so with rigor due to the disabling effects it can have on a person’s quality of life. Healing disc pain becomes essential!

Treatment for Disc Pain

Treatment for the relief of disc pain for the back or neck often includes physical therapy, ergonomic training (e.g. sitting postures), activity modification (e.g. sleeping with a pillow between your knees), heat and cold modalities, gentle stretching, acupuncture, therapeutic exercise(s), medications as prescribed and possible trigger point injections.

As a general rule, when seeking disc pain relief for your lower back, activities of daily living should be performed in a slow and controlled manner.  One should never try to be aggressive or force an activity.  This can in many cases cause an exacerbation of symptoms and a delay in recovery time.

Often, people who suffer from disc pain in the back experience periods of remission followed by periods of relapses.  This can cause much frustration and should not prevent one from seeking a cure for back pain and permanent relief of disc pain symptoms. It is important to maintain a positive attitude towards healing your lower back pain.

It is best to consult a qualified healthcare professional for the proper diagnosis and intervention of your condition.
