Diet Plan for Slipped Disc problem
A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like center of a disc becomes weak or torn and allows the inner portion to slip out. This can happen with ageing or in case of any injury. Eating a balanced diet with right amount and variety of nutrients can reduce such back problems by nourishing the muscles, bones, discs and spinal structure. A balanced diet helps in building strong bones and strengthening the body.
