Diet Chart for Slipped Disc Problem

A slipped disc is a condition in which a soft cushion of tissue between the bones in your spine pushes out. It becomes more painful when it presses the nerves. 

The signs and symptoms of the slipped disc include pain and numbness in the back, worsening of pain at night, muscle weakness, sensation of aching, burning in the affected area, pain while walking for short distances.


Causes of slipped disc problems may include ageing, obesity, injury, occupations demanding lifting of heavy weights. Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion of the disc to protrude through the outer ring.
