Keeping slipped disk at bay

Posted on August 21, 2015 9:15 am under Premises Liability

Herniated disk is a painful musculoskeletal condition that occurs due to a variety of reason: poor ergonomics, repeated and forceful motions, obesity, and lack of exercise. If left unmanaged, this condition may lead to more serious medical harm, such as uncontrolled bladder, worsening pain, and permanent paralysis.

To keep slipped disk at bay, remember to maintain the following:

  • Healthy weight – An added weight means an added pressure to one or more of your disk, making them more prone to herniation
  • Proper posture – By maintaining good posture, you are reducing the pressure applied on your spine
  • An active lifestyle – With regular exercise, you can strengthen your muscles that support your spine, making your disks less likely to herniate

In some instances, however, a herniated disk can be a result of a traumatic injury caused by slip and fall. Unfortunately, poorly-maintained premises pose safety threat among those occupying the property.
