Physiotherapy Tips for Managing Herniated DIsc

Herniated disc pain is one of the most weakening and debilitating pain influencing people from age 30 and up. Herniated discs within the lower back and neck can irritate adjacent nerves, causing individual debilitating pain in the neck, shoulder, arms, and/or legs.

The pain caused by a herniated disc can be greatly uncomfortable and can contrarily affect an individual’s quality of life. Fortunately, whereas surgery is utilized as a final resort, numerous people enduring from a herniated disc are able to manage their pain without it.

Following Tips will help to manage pain caused by herniated Discs

Hot and cold treatment: Applying hot or cold pack to affected area safely can help you to relieve inflammation and reduce pain.

Respect pain and Avoid movement which aggravates pain: Avoiding any physical activities or movement that triggers pain or referred pain down to arms or leg.
