Herniated Disc

The spine in the human body is made with 24 bones, which are called as vertebrae and these are stacked on one another. A canal is created with these bones and act as protectors to the spinal cord. The lower back on the spinal is the lower five vertebrae in the spine and this area is known as lumbar spine.

Spine has the other parts.

Spinal cord and nerves are the part of the spinal cord and these act as electrical cables. These cables carry the messages between the muscles and brain, by travelling through the spinal canal. Other parts are intervertebral discs. These discs are flexible and present in between vertebrae. They act to be the shock absorbers, especially, while the human walks or runs. These have the thickness of half inch size and look flat and round. The intervertebral discs are made up of annulus fibroses and nucleus pulposus.

Causes

When any injury happens or tears because of wearing, jelly like nucleus starts pushing it against the outer ring and start herniating. The pressure caused in the outer ring would result in the lower back pain. During the injuries or worn conditions, the jelly like nucleus get squeezed all through the way. The nucleus herniated or broken through its outer ring, lower back will start increasing. It because the jelly like nucleus inflames the nerves of the spine. The pressure it puts over the spinal nerves that are sensitive will cause the weakness, numbness and pain in a single or both the legs. Apart from these causes, herniated disc also happens because of the natural process of aging of the spine. It is because the water content in the disk dries out. Then discs will get shrunk and the vertebrae spaces will become narrow. Such process by aging is called disc degeneration.

Biliary Atresia – This condition occurs from either absence of the bile ducts or abnormal development of the same. Acute Hepatic Necrosis – This condition is caused because the tissue in the liver dies. Liver Cancers – Primary tumors in the liver, and not yet spread to the external parts of the liver.
