❓Annular Tearing – How Does It Happen? What Are Treatment Options?
An intervertebral disc is a type of ligament that connects one vertebra to the next adjacent vertebral bone. 📍These intervertebral discs act as shock-absorbing cushions between the vertebrae of the spinal column. Each intervertebral disc has two parts. The outer ring-like structure is called as annulus fibrosis and the inner soft jelly-like part is known as nucleus pulposus.
The outer ring, i.e. annulus is the strongest part of the disc. The outer one-third part of the annular ring is richly supplied with the pain nerve fibers. Thus, if a tear occurs in the outer one-third of the annular ring, it is a very painful situation. Although this tear is liable to heal with the passage of time having scar tissue on it predisposes to future tears and injuries. It is also proven from researches that annular tears and injuries predispose to degenerative disc disease as well as the degeneration of facet joints and endplates. Annular tears are also known as annular fissures. ✅Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression is an effective way to reduce pressure from the nerve roots of the affected region. Pressure may be due to a bulging or herniated disc or central canal stenosis. Spinal column can be decompressed either through surgical procedure (which we do not recommend) or through spinal decompression therapy. Here at Spinal Backrack, we provide you an innovative spinal decompression device that helps you decompress your spine safely at home.
This unique device is called Backrack™. It is designed to treat almost all spinal disorders through simple exercises. Anybody who suffers from annular tear or back pain can use Backrack™ to treat the cause of pain. Backrack™ works on the whole spine from neck to lower back and hips.
2.5 years out from her surgery. MRI follow-up. She still walks off with the nurses for sedation like it's no biggie. ✌She requested to pull out the IV herself 🤢 -- and she did (with nursing approval). The imaging looks stable and we will just continue to monitor for any symptoms from the syrinx (cyst) pressing on nerves in the spine. #chiarimalformation#decompression#syringomyelia

I'm moving through this sequence pretty quickly here, which some of you might enjoy, but for those of you who find your body needs more time with each or any of the movements before it's ready to respond (change, shift, release, lengthen, open, feel better, etc) please allow yourself to take as many breaths with each of the movements as you find you need, want and enjoy!
Keep these basics in mind:
▶ Grounding: Whatever body parts are on the ground at any given time, they are moving down toward the centre of the earth. Mentally join in with and don't fight this process. You are not trying to "hold a pose" by bracing into "position", you are endeavoring to "go with" the pull of gravity (down for stability) which will at some point lead you upward and out ward, toward release (the bodys response to grounding) #joyofmovement
▶ Breathing: As you practice grounding allow your breath to circulate freely. Let your breath do whatever it needs and wants to during these movements (you don't have to "do" or control the breathing, your breathing will show you what it needs to do -- Trust your body and go with it)
▶ Releasing: I used to say that letting your body ground and breathe freely, will help lead toward the experience of release, but I think it may be more accurate to say that the grounding and the breathing IS the release... What do you think?
If you'd like more specific instructions for any specific bits and bobs of this sequence, or if you get stuck with it in anyway, please don't hesitate to give a shout🙏
