Disc Herniation


It isn’t uncommon for people to experience a herniated disc. 19 to 27% of people suffer from a herniated disc. It can result from many factors such as aging, poor body mechanics, poor posture, frequently lifting heavy objects, excess weight, and so on.


A herniated disc occurs when the nerves in your spine get pinched by a spinal disc nucleus pushed through the annulus(outer layer). A herniated disc can have multiple locations and stages, for instance, an l5 s1 disc herniation, which is very common. You may also experience various herniated discs. 


We advise you to get diagnosed by a professional because often, you may not experience any symptoms of a herniated disc. However, you can keep an eye on these signs of a slipped disc and consult to start herniated disc treatment immediately:


  • Pain, numbness, or tingling sensation in back, foot, arms, hand, leg, neck, etc.

  • Lower back pain.

  • Weakness.

  • Difficulty bending or straightening the back.

  • You are in-between the age of 30 and 50.

  • Male are more prone to suffer from a herniated disc.


Take Action, Rest Easy.


Many people wonder, “Do herniated discs heal?” While the pain it produces is highly tormenting, we assure you it is possible to treat herniation if you get the proper care on time for your absolute comfort. 


Starting herniated disc treatment is the best choice you can make. Please don’t wait until it becomes a significant condition that calls for surgery. You can start acting on it today with medical treatment along with physiotherapy and massage therapy


A slipped disc physical therapy won’t only free you from the pain of a herniated disc; it can also prevent surgery altogether. It has long, and short-term results. You can also recur to deep tissue massage for relief.
