Slipped Disc Symptoms (Part 15)

0 Reviewed by Back Pain Advisor

Slipped disc symptoms include amongst other things…

  • severe, sharp or shooting pain in the leg
  • muscle pain and aches in the legs generally
  • pain down just one leg
  • numbness and loss of feeling in the leg
  • pins and needles in the leg
  • loss of reflex
  • loss of flexibility and limited range of motion in the leg

The cure for these slipped disc symptoms for the majority of sufferers is very clear-the brain has to be retrained to stop the pain!

It’s that simple!

Just understanding what’s at the root of the slipped disc symptoms is at the heart of finding the right cure.

Without knowing the root cause a lot lot of time and money can be wasted!

Just take a look at this extract from an N.I.N.D. back pain article (dated March 2010):

“Most acute back pain is mechanical in nature — the result of trauma to the lower back or a disorder such as arthritis. Pain from trauma may be caused by a sports injury, work around the house or in the garden, or a sudden jolt such as a car accident or other stress on spinal bones and tissues. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and/or range of motion, or an inability to stand straight…Some acute pain syndromes can become more serious if left untreated.”

As you can see, a common medical answer for slipped disc symptoms is to blame spinal abnormalities and ‘deficiencies’.

In my earlier posts, I have continually focused on the fact that slipped disc symptoms and the majority of back pain cases are actually caused by nothing other than simple oxygen deprivation to the muscles, tendons and nerves in the spine .

It’s like having a prolonged and very bad stitch in your Back!

Oxygen deprivation occurs when the blood flow to the spine is reduced decreasing the amount of oxygen available to the muscles, nerves and tissues. It really is a simple answer for most symptoms.

But why exactly are slipped disc symptoms being caused by this? What’s the root cause?

The answer to this question is at the crux of the cure for slipped disc symptoms and the majority of back pain.

It requires an open mind because without an understanding of the WHY finding a real back pain remedies will like chasing the wind.

In a nutshell, the explanation goes something like this:

The mind consists of three main areas, the conscious, subconscious and the unconscious. The unconscious mind also holds the autonomic nervous system which controls automated bodily functions such as breathing etc.

It’s the unconscious mind which, if it becomes overloaded deep down with buried emotions, will trigger through the brain severe pain to act as an effective distraction or decoy strategy from the real emotional issues at hand. This is by no means a psychosomatic illness as the direct cause of pain is physical, it’s oxygen deprivation via the blood supply.


The even deeper root cause of pain which triggers the ischemia symptoms is emotional in nature…

But Why Me and Why Do I have Slipped Disc Symptoms Right Now?

The answer to this question is simple, in our modern societies we;

  1. don’t concentrate on emotional coping skills, emotional maturity
  2. ignore and avoid our unpleasant emotions and repress them thinking that we have dealt with them if they are forgotten
  3. aren’t aware of how much grief or anger and frustration we can generate day to day in our lives
  4. use addictions such as drink, drugs, shopping, TV to block out and repress our painful emotions and push them down further where they become toxic.

This is where the emotional overload in the unconscious mind comes from, it’s the toxic emotional waste we don’t wish to or aren’t able to face.

BUT if someone continually represses their unpleasant emotions or has a number of traumas in their lives then they are sitting ducks for a severe form of this pain syndrome to be triggered off in the body and the spine is one of the most favoured sites for the syndrome as it incapacitates a person so much!

In summary, ignoring painful emotions has a heavy price to pay down the road. The presence of depression and anxiety in our minds are also witness to the overload deep down.

I believe that it’s only when sufferers understand this important connection and the root cause of back pain or slipped disc symptoms that they can begin to break free. The solution is both simple and affordable.

You need to LEARN WHY the brain triggers off the oxygen deprivation pain in the autonomic nervous system (which resides in the unconscious mind).

In the next post, to set a foundation for the cure I’ll be looking at the structure of the spine, a marvel of engineering in our backs…
