Slip Disc is a disease of the Spinal Cord.
Any severe damage to the structure of the disc causes Slip Disc.
The Spinal Cord is made up of Vertebrae.
The Vertebrae contains bones and cartilage discs. The central part of the Vertebrae is called Spinal Canal through which the Spinal Cord passes. It receives shock and protects the Spinal Cord from damage.
Three types of Spinal Cord are
Cervical Vertebrae : It involves the Neck.
Thoracic Vertebrae : It involves the Chest.
Lumbar Vertebrae : It involves the lower back.
The Spinal Nerve transmits the signals between the Body and the Brain. Hence it is a part of the Central Nervous System.
Any severe damage to the Spinal cord may displace the cartilage present in between the Vertebrae’s. The soft gel like substance bulges out from the ring. It causes pain and results in impairment of the Spinal Cord's Functions.
The nerve that is most affected in Slip Disc is Sciatic Nerve.
Causes of Slip Disc
Exercise in excess
