Conservative Treatment for Slip Disc

Most people with a slipped disc in the lumbar region of their spine (lower back) are offered “conservative” treatment, meaning that the treatment does not involve surgery. This mainly involves Chiropractic Adjustment, exercise, relaxation and positioning, anesthetics, and manual and physical therapy.

Some slipped discs don’t cause any symptoms, whereas others lead to severe back pain. A slipped disc can press on the sciatic nerve and cause pain that often radiates down one leg and into the foot. Most people recover from a slipped disc within six weeks without treatment. Until then there are a number of treatment options that aim to help relieve the pain and improve mobility. A slipped disc — also called a herniated, bulged, or ruptured disc — is a painful condition. While your spine can handle a lot of twisting, flexing, and supporting, it may give you trouble at some point in your life. Each bone in your spine is surrounded by shock-absorbing discs, and these discs are often the ones to blame for your pain.

When the soft spongy center comes through a crack or tear in the outer layer of the disc, it can lead to pain in your back, neck, hips, legs, or buttocks, depending on which disc is affected. Not all slipped discs cause pain, but the majority will. You might also experience tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness, which can make daily activities more difficult.

To the help your spinal disc heal you want to take it easy and avoid overexertion, especially right away. But while bed rest was a common suggestion in the past, it is not the course of action that doctors advise today. Gentle exercise is now the recommended way to get pain relief for a slipped disc, helping your spine heal and return to a healthy state while you keep your body moving.
