Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

Symptoms of a herniated disc usually include pain that travels into one or both arms or legs, numbness or tingling in areas of extremities, muscle weakness, and loss of the reflexes in extremities. The symptoms of a herniated disc may not include a wide array of pain. The symptoms come from increased pressure and irritation of the nerves. Many people may not have neck or back pain with a herniated disc. Where these symptoms occur depends on where the herniation is located. The location of the symptoms helps determine the diagnosis as nerves usually travel in specific patterns.

Anatomy of A Disc

An intervertebral disc is a strong ligament that connects one vertebral bone to the next. The discs are the shock-absorbing cushions between each vertebra of the spine. Each disc has a strong outer ring of fibers, called the annulus fibrosus, and a soft, jelly-like center, called the nucleus pulposus. The annulus is the strongest area of the disc and the ligament that connects each vertebra together. The nucleus, or center of the disc, is hydrated and serves as the main shock absorber. Discs in the spine increase in size from the neck to the low back as there are increasing needs for shock absorption due to weight and gravity. These specific disc ligaments function just like knee ligaments and shoulder ligaments do. They allow the spine to move so we can bend forward, backward and sideways. Just like other ligaments, the discs can be injured.


Causes of herniated discs

Herniated discs are most common in young to middle-aged adults, it rarely occurs in children. A herniated disc may occur when too much force is exerted on an otherwise healthy intervertebral disc. Heavy forces on the neck or low back may simply be too much for even a healthy disc to absorb. For example, falling from a significant height such as a ladder can cause significant force through the spine. If strong enough, a vertebra can break, or a disc can rupture. Bending can also place high forces on the discs between each vertebra. If you bend and try to lift a heavy object, the force can cause a disc to rupture.

A disc can also rupture after repeated annular tears that weaken the disc over time. At some point lifting or bending can cause too much pressure across the disc. This activity may have been only a little force and something that years earlier would never had been a problem. This is due to the effects of aging on the spine, or degenerative changes. The natural process of aging causes discs to become weakened from degeneration. Not everyone with a herniated disc has degenerative problems and not everyone with degeneration will suffer from a herniated disc.

A disc herniation can arise from something as simple as poor posture. As postural muscles fatigue, shoulders begin to round forward and the head will also drift forward creating excessive tension on the discs, ligaments, and joints of the cervical spine. Every inch of forward head posture adds an additional 10 pounds of pressure on the spine, that means having your head held in a forward position by 4 inches can add 40 pounds of pull on your cervical spine. Over time, excessive tension causes disc weakness, joint and ligament inflammation, and muscle tightness.

Testimonials Prescriptions Why do American doctors recommend Z-CoiL footwear to their patients with feet, leg, knee and back pain?

More than 90% of the foot, leg, knee, and back pain is caused by inflammation. If you have a pain when you press such area, it means that you have inflammation on that area.

To eliminate inflammation, reducing the repeated impact on the feet, leg, knee and back, and continuously massaging on the area will increase blood flow through capillaries, then, the pain is usually gone.

Z-Coil shoes can help with this. Our springs reduce impact on your body up to 50%, and our rigid Z-Orthotic cradles the foot, equalizing pressure distribution. Therefore, your feet can be gently rolling while walking. And It will increase blood flow just like massaging effect that inflammation will be easily gone.

For example, in the case of plantar fasciitis, the best way to help naturally cure while standing and walking on daily basis is to reduce a direct impact on soles and massage their feet sufficiently to increase blood flow. Just wearing Z-CoiLs helps to do that!

Increased Mobility in the Right Shoes
Imagine taking a road trip in a heavy-duty truck with little shock absorption and a no-frills cab. Every bump in the road is transferred into your body. You will arrive at your destination feeling worn out and needing rest. If you take the same trip in a luxury car, you will arrive feeling rested, ready to explore and enjoy your new surroundings. The difference in travel experience is comparable to moving about in regular shoes versus Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear®. Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear provides a luxury experience that allows you to travel on foot with ease, and that keeps you moving farther faster.

How Z-CoiL Shoes Increase Mobility
When people have lower body pain, they often limit their activity to minimize painful movements. When staying sedentary isn't an option, walking posture may change and may be reduced to shuffling to minimize the pain felt in the foot, knee, hip and lower back joints. Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear's patented technology and innovative design deliver significant impact reduction, which provides immediate lower body joint pain relief, at the same time it provides energy return with each step that combats fatigue. Z-CoiL customers describe the feeling as gliding vs. walking. Over time, effortless pain-free steps actually lead to an overall increase in mobility for Z-CoiL wearers. Our shoes actually encourage wearers to lengthen the stride of their gait, which means they cover more ground with each step, so they move farther faster.

Why Increased Mobility is Significant
Chronic pain in the foot, leg and back limits mobility and diminishes the quality of life. A smooth, effortless gait is essential to maintaining an active lifestyle. When you can continue to stand, walk and run, you can get the exercise you need to naturally combat painful conditions, like osteoarthritis, and maintain overall health. Shoes that equip you to handle the stresses of standing, walking and running on unforgiving surfaces can prevent impact-induced injuries. Injury limits mobility as well as avoids other costly and invasive pain relief treatments, like cortisone shots, prescription pain blockers and surgery.
