Slipped disc

The pain of a slipped (or herniated) disc can be debilitating, and further spinal disc damage may be irreversible.

Under stress, a disc’s inner material may swell, pushing through its tough outer membrane. The entire disc becomes distorted. All or part of the core material protrudes through the outer casing at a weak spot, pressing against surrounding nerves. If further activity or injury causes the membrane to rupture or tear, the disc material can injure the spinal cord or the nerves that radiate from it. This causes extreme debilitating pain. It’s an unmistakable signal to stop all movement immediately. Further disc damage may be irreversible. In some instances the injured disc itself is the source of pain.

The vast majority of disc injuries occur in the lumbar region of the lower back. Only 10% of these injuries affect the upper spine. However not all slipped discs press on nerves, and it is entirely possible to have deformed discs without any pain or discomfort.

Slipped discs are most common in men and women between 30 and 50 years old, although they also occur in active children and young adults. Older people, whose discs no longer have fluid cores, are much less likely to encounter the problem. People who do regular moderate exercise are much less likely to have disc problems than sedentary adults. People who exercise tend to stay flexible considerably longer.

Slipped Disk Overview

The disks are protective shock-absorbing pads between the bones of the spine (vertebrae). The disks of the spine are also referred to as intervertebral disks. Although they do not actually “slip,” a disk may move, split, or rupture. This can cause the disk cartilage and nearby tissue to fail (herniate), allowing the inner gel portion of the disk to escape into the surrounding tissue. This leaking jelly-like substance can place pressure on the spinal cord or on an adjacent nerve to cause symptoms of pain, numbness, or weakness either around the damaged disk or anywhere along the area supplied by that nerve.

Many people experience no symptoms from a herniated disk, and the majority of people who have herniated disks do not need surgery.

The layman’s term “slipped disk” is, therefore, a misnomer and actually refers to a condition whereby portions of an abnormal, injured, or degenerated disk have protruded against adjacent nerve tissues. This condition is also known as a herniated disk, ruptured disk, or prolapsed disk. The most frequently affected area is in the low back, but any disk can rupture, including those in the neck.

Body Systems – Western Model

In western medicine, the body is studied in terms of systems or groups of organs that work together. The organs in a system are grouped together because they are interconnected and also because they have made up of the same type of tissues.

System Planet Major Organs and Structures
Skeletal Sun Bones, cartilage, joints and ligaments that hold them together.
Muscular Saturn Muscles: (i) skeletal or voluntary (with bones and tendons is responsible for all forms of conscious movement ), (ii) smooth muscles –responsible for involuntary movement of internal organs, (iii) cardiac muscles, the bulk of the heart.
Nervous Mars Brain and sense organs (eyes, ears, taste buds, smell and touch receptors), nerves andspinal cord.
Endocrine Venus Control and influence the body’s chemistry and metabolic processes. Hormone producingglands: pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, pancreas, thymus, testes/ovaries.
Respiratory Mercury Lungs, bronchi (tubes to lungs), trachea(windpipe), mouth, larynx, nose, diaphragm.
Cardio- vascular Sun Heart, arteries, veins, capillaries, blood.
Lymph-vascular Mercury Structures involving the circulation of lymphand the body’s defense against disease, including lymph nodes, lymph vessels, spleen, tonsils, adenoids, thymus.
Digestive Jupiter Mouth, teeth, tongue, salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, small intestines, liver, gall-bladder, pancreas.
Excretory Saturn Organs and glands involved in the removal of waste matter from the body: sweat glands, large intestines, urinary system (kidneys,ureters, bladder, urethra).
Reproductive Venus Male: testes, penis, prostate gland, seminal vesicles, urethra.Female: ovaries, Fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva.Male and female sex hormones relates to sexual growth and function (menstruation in females).
Table of Zodiac Sign/Body Correspondences.
Zodiac Sign: Areas Ruled: Zodiac Sign: Areas Ruled:
Aries The head, the cerebrum, eyes, face, upper jaw, carotid arteries, front of the body. Libra The kidneys, ureters, adrenal glands, skin, loins, lumbar region, back of the body.
Taurus The neck, ears, lower jaw, throat, cerebellum, thyroid gland. Scorpio The bladder, urethra, genitals, ovaries/testes, prostate, sigmoid colon, pubic bone, nose, haeme.
Gemini The lungs, bronchi, trachea, shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, sympathetic nervous system. Sagittarius The hips, thighs, ilium, femur, sacrum, coccyx, ischium, blood vessels, sciatic nerves, pituitary.
Cancer The breast, diaphragm, stomach, oesophagus, taste, left side of the body. Capricorn The knees, bones, teeth, skin, joints, hair, parathyroids, right side of the body.
Leo The heart, vena cava, back, spine, spinal cord, back, thymus gland. Aquarius The lower legs, ankles, circulation, pineal body.
Virgo The intestines, duodenum, peyer’s patches, solar plexus, abdomen, parasympathetic nervous system. Pisces The feet, toes, thalamus, blood fibrin.

The Sun is the life giver to our physical bodies and controls the prana or life force. The placement of the Sun is very important for overall health as it governs entire constitution of the body. No number of words can express the Sun’s importance in bodily functioning. It specifically rules the heart, eyes, upper back and spine, aorta and blood circulation.
