Slip disc is also known as ‘herniated disc’. Our spine has bones that are called vertebrae. Between each vertebra, there are protective shock-absorbing pads. These pads are known as discs. Each disc has two parts. Due to aging or an injury, the inner gel may come out and cause protrusion in the outer ring. This condition is slipped disc or herniated disc or prolapsed disc. Common Causes of Slip disc:
- Wear and tear
- Poor lifestyle
Spondylosis is associated with the wear and tear of the bones, ligaments and weakening of the spinal discs. Spondylosis usually affects the elderly but the symptoms can be seen as early as in 20 years of age. Depending on the cause of Spondylosis and the intensity of damage, the doctor would begin with medication followed by low-intensity physical therapy and adequate rest. This can occur in the cervical spine (neck region), middle back or the lumbar spine (lower back). Common signs are stiffness in neck or headaches.
- Localized pain
- Sharp shooting pain
- Leg Pain, numbness, weakness and tingling
- Nerve pinching
Degenerative Disc Disease
Back or neck pain is the most common symptom in any of the degenerative disc diseases. The pain occurs around the affected area. If the disc is damaged near the neck, the pain is experienced along the shoulder blade and the arms. If the lumbar spine is affected, the pain spreads to the buttock, thighs till the knees. This pain gets worse with movement like twisting, bending and stretching. Causes Of Degenerative disc disease.
- Loss or drying of disc fluid
- Bulging disc or herniation
- Bone spur
- Heavy weight lifting
Brain Tumor Surgery
A brain tumor is a mass of tissue that forms in any part of the brain due to the accumulation of abnormal cells. The normal cycle of a cell in the body involves its production, aging then death and replacement by other cells. This is not the case for tumors as the cycle is disrupted making the tumor cells grow despite not being needed by the body. There are brain tumor symptoms which are generic and come across as warning signs that should not be ignored.
Brain surgeons are trained to handle each surgery on a case-to-case basis. This is key because every case they handle has its unique feature despite the similarities in symptoms from patient to patient. This begs the need for extreme care and thorough practice when handling the procedures. Additionally, as earlier stated, every brain surgery to be performed is greatly hinged on the condition that is being treated. Some of the common brain surgeries are :
- Deep brain stimulation
- Brain Biopsy
- Endonasal endoscopic surgery
Most brain tumor patients experience headache. Headache can be caused by various triggers and there are different types of headaches. When a tumor grows in the brain, there could be brain swelling. This causes intracranial pressure (ICP). ICP is the pressure exerted on the brain tissues and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain. Headaches in brain tumor do not occur separately but are in sync with other neurological symptoms like:
- Temporary unconsciousness
- Changes in sensory organs like altered vision or hearing
- Slurred speech, uncontrolled facial expression
- Memory loss
