Abstract

Dr. Shweta Siddhartha Dethe*, Dr. M. J. Qadri and Dr. Piyush Mathariya

ABSTRACT

A prolapsed intervertebral disc is term used for slipped disc or herniated disc. Prolapse of intervertebral disc is commonly noticed in the cervical and the lumbar spine. These intervertebral discs are placed in between each of the vertebrae of the spine for shock absorber. 80% cases of Prolapsed Intervertebral Disc are traumatic in origin, 15% cases are degenerative and remaining is due to increased tension in disc. When the fibrous outer part of the disc breaks down it allow the gel like core to bulge outwards. The disc which is damaged puts pressure on the spinal cord or a single nerve fibre. These result into pain in the area of disc or the region such as arm or a leg supplied by suppressed nerve. Prolapsed disc can be a reason for severe lower back pain. The symptoms seen on lower back referred sciatic pain, paraesthesia, tingling numbness in lower limbs. The modern line of treatment is mainly surgical consisting of laminectomy, discectomy; which is expensive and has chances of recurrence. Method: A case of 30 year male patient approached us with low backache radiating pain to bilateral leg having tingling sensation and numbness. Patient having history of heavy weight lifting after that he had above complaints. MRI spine was done s/o disc prolapse at L4-S1 with annular tear of L4-L5 nerve root compression. He was treated with Agnikarma done with Panchadhatu Shalaka. Result: Improvement was seen regarding symptoms low backache, tingling and numbness.
