80% of the world population is suffering from lower back pain!

 

Spine

Medical research has shown that around 80% of the world’s population experience lower back pain in which 5% of the back pain symptoms last for a month or more. 39% of them are caused by slipped disc, which is also the main reason for causing lower back pain and sciatic pain.

Soreness and numbness around the limbs are mostly caused by spinal disorders. Symptoms that persist for a long period of time will affect our organ’s functions and will cause difficult limb and body movements. In severe case, paralysis of limbs may result, thus endangering our health and impairing our life qualities.

What is spinal disorder?

Injuries to the spinal cord or minor misalignment of vertebrae will cause instability of spinal balance. Misalignment of the vertebrae places stress (in the form of compression) on nerves, vertebral vessels and sympathetic nerves. Depending on the level of compression and duration, the connected body parts will be affected, directly or indirectly, causing malfunction of the body. It will also lead to ostealgia (bone pain) and various internal disorders, namely spinal disorders.

 

 

 

 

Spinal Nerves and Organs

Type of spinal disorders

Minor malposition of the cervical vertebra will cause compression of our nerves and blood vessels. Temporary or permanent compression leads to poor blood circulation which may give rise to other disorders such as tension headaches, migraines and inner ear imbalance. Instability of lumbar vertebra and compressions on the nerves and blood vessels due to malposition of the lumbar vertebra will cause sciatica. Symptoms of sciatica include a sensation of numbness around lower limbs with lancination (tearing) or asthenia (weakness). This will affect the way we walk, stand and everyday movements, which may be followed by a series of complications.

Common spinal disorders include scoliosis (sideways curvature of the spine), bone spur formation, slipped disc, and discdegeneration.

Compression level of vertebrae is the measurement of pressures in our vertebrae at certain postures or when the body is engaged in certain activities; the higher the level of this compression, the easier we injure our vertebrae.
