You have must heard from MRI reports or your Doctors saying that the Slip Disc is causing the Nerve Root pain. Let’s see what happens in first case, when the Disc gets compressed it tend to come put of the place and presses the Nerve which is on the either side of the Vertebrae. Based on which level of Vertebrae compression happens it affects the whole Nerve Root. For Ex:Sciatic Nerve Root compression causes the pain,numbness,weakness in the whole leg.Because the Nerve Root supplies blood supply to the whole leg. Hence it weakens the whole Leg and causes Limping and Pain down the Leg as well. That is the reason people who has Nerve Root pain are not able to stand for long and sit for long, because of the Nerve Root irritation which actually gets worse because of the weaker Muscles.
How many times you have woken up with Low Back and Neck pain after your sleep.How many times you have noticed your Mattress whether it’s taking your shape or not. Researches says that Mattress plays an important role in mainlining your posture while sleeping. Because if the Mattress sinks your Lower Back arches quite a bit thus it makes the muscles stiffer over a period of time.Then your Spine becomes immobile because of the weak and stiff muscles. That’s why feel a Stiff back in the mornings when you wake up. Same goes for the Neck as well,when Upper Back sinks it makes your Neck muscle stiff in turn it causes Neck spasm and all. Sometimes it leads to Nerve root irritation hence it causes Weakness and Numbness and all. So you Mattress shouldn’t be too soft of too hard either. It should be a medium one which keeps holding your Posture well.
