Disc Prolapse


A 22 year old call centre worker in Bangalore contracts back pain. Goes to the local doctor, gets pills. Pain subsides. The incident is forgotten.


A 24 year old call centre manager in Chennai contracts back pain. Goes to the doctor, gets pills. Pain Subsides. The incident is forgotten.


A 24 year old MBA student goes on a trip to Pondy. Strains his back while throwing his friends into the pool. Goes to the doctor, get pills. Pain subsides. The incident is forgotten.


A 25 year old manager at a financial services company gets back ache from sitting too long at the desk and driving a two wheeler. Goes to the doctor, gets pills.
Pain does not subside. Takes an Xray. Nothing is wrong. Goes for physiotherapy, doesnt help. Takes an MRI scan. He has a disc prolapse (one of the ‘washers’ between his vertebrae has slipped out and is pressing on spinal nerves). He has to have a microdiscotomy to fix the problem. Major surgery, requires 3 days bed rest.

Moral of the story: Sit straight in that chair!
