my friend nishanth,20 years old. He s suffering from back pain.and when he took MRI scan the doctors here told that spinal cord disc has moved.plz suggest ideas
It is called IVDP(Intervertebral disc prolapse). Disc is a protective structure which lies between two vertebral bones. This protects the bones and also acts as shock absorbers.
In this condition the disc moves from the place. This creates a disc space narrowing. it may lead to bone erosion, back muscle spasm and nerve compression which causes back pain. Consult an orthopedician.
