Difference between normal disc versus herniated disc

Usually, many back pains, neck pains, sciatica may origin due to disc problems, such as herniated disc, slip disc, disc prolapse, spondylosis, spondylitis, degenerative disc diseases.

What is the Herniated Disc? When the nucleus pulposus protrudes outside through annulus fibrosis at intervertebral space, usually between C6-C7 and L4-L5 or L5-S1. It may also affect other spinal segments.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

  • Stiffness in the cervical or lumbar area, especially after sitting for long time or when you wake up in the morning after sleep.
  • Pain-usually nagging pain, discomfort, burning pain, numbness, localized or radiating pain.
  • The lumbar disc herniation can be impinging or pinch upon the sciatic nerve, which can cause sciatica pain that can radiate along the back or sides of your hips, buttocks, thighs, and legs.
  • Also, a herniated disc can limit your range of motions.

Best Treatment Options for Disc Herniation

> Herniated disc surgery: Types, procedure, risks, and recovery

  1. Lumbar Discectomy Surgery, microdiscectomy, minimally invasion disc surgery …but the success rate is only 5% and 70% of patients suffer serious surgical complications, such as paralysis, cardiac arrest, disability, and even death during or after surgery. Herniated Disk Surgery: What to Expect? You can get pain relief but complications of surgery are dangerous.
  2. Non-Surgical Safe Treatments for Disc Herniation: You can try DORN METHOD; DRN SPINE THERAPY FROM GERMANY. This is the only treatment that corrects or treats all spine/disc problems, such as disc herniation, disc prolapse, slip disc, degenerative disc disease, spondylosis, spondylitis, abnormal spine curvatures, such as scoliosis or kyphosis.

You can call or consult the best dorn therapist near me in Bengaluru here……for your spine and disc diseases (neck pain, back pain, hip pain, leg pain, sciatica)

You can feel the relief of neck pain, back pain, sciatica pain, disc pain, leg pain due to spondylosis or spondylitis IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT, AFTER FIRST SESSION.

3. Acupuncture (electroacupuncture, master Tung acupuncture, TCM-Chinese acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, ear acupuncture). You can get permanent relief or cure of herniated disc-related pains using this safe, non-drug, non-surgical treatment. So, no need to take pain killers and suffer from side effects.

Degenerative Disc Disease and Sciatica: Symptoms & Treatment

“Discs can shrink, atrophy and degenerate with age due to obesity and osteoporosis. It can result in sciatica pain with symptoms of pain, numbness. Treatment options are as above.”

The treatment options include mineral supplements, vitamin D, sun exposure, stretching exercises, Dorn therapy to increase intervertebral disc space, acupuncture, bone-strengthening exercises, etc.

Surgery for Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease is also an option but not advised due to complications of surgery.

Many patients are confused with deciding on Surgery for Degenerative Disc Disease as the cost of treatment is very high and also no guarantee of results and complications.

Back surgery: When is it a good idea?

#The answer is “No” unless you are ready to die and permanently bedridden. First try above non-surgical methods, which are safe, very minimal cost, risk-free, etc.


Due to close proximity of spinal cord and spinal nerves / nerve roots close to discs, there is ALWAYS THE CHANCE OF NERVE DAMAGE, which can cause paraplegia, hemiplegia, quadriplegia (complete paralysis)

  • Cardiac arrest or heart failure (one of my friend died due to cardiac arrest after cervical discectomy surgery in BGS Hospital.
  • Permanent disability. Many patients may not get up and walk again and may need to use wheelchair or may become bedridden.
  • Postoperative pain. Surgery cannot treat neuropathy or nerve damage due to Spine Surgery for Degenerative Disc Disease.
