Disc prolapse is a common hip problem nowadays, common for men and women. Studies show that around 40 out of 100 people have hip-related problems mainly membrane dislocation. But people do not pay enough attention to this and hence it becomes a serious condition such as nervous disorder or even a stroke. The common problem which occurs due to hip pain is called disc prolapse.
- Causes very high pain when waking up in the morning.
- Causes pain while going for a walk.
- Causes cramps in our legs making it difficult for us to move.
Reason For Disc Prolapse
There is a region called the lumbar region in our back that undergoes pressure when we do physical activities such as bending down or lifting heavy objects, etc. Naturally, there is a high chance of membrane dislocation in this region. This membrane dislocation is called disc prolapse. Pain starts from the lumbar region and slowly moves to the legs and even causes cramps.
In modern medicine, the immediate response to this condition is surgery. The dislocated membrane is removed by surgery and replaced with a clip which is said to reduce the pain. The majority of these surgeries result in failure. The reason for this is because there is a lot of destruction after the surgery is finished. When we fail to do so, this results in the damage of the clip, and hence another surgery would be needed.
