Treatment For Slip Disc

By: Amuro Wesley

Do you know that most of back pains are actually caused by slip disc? To young people, they just dismiss back pains as minor ailments but to adults and elderly, they are not too optimistic and wonder whether treatment for disc is only possible through surgery. Let me assure you that this is not necessary as slip disc can be treated with the right advice and exercises.

The discs primarily served as shock absorbers and helps in movement between the spine’s bony vertebrae. Whenever we bend or twist, the force of movement applies a lot of pressure on the discs without us knowing or feeling until we reach our 30s, 40s and older ages.

Within the discs is a jelly like substance in the middle and fibrous outer layer. If too much pressure is applied upon the discs, the outer layer will be weakened and subsequently, that jelly like substance began to protrude just like how inner tube protrude from a weak spot within the type.

Such protrusion will result in inflammation of the adjacent structures including the sciatic nerve and soon after pain.

If there remains any significant problem, I will recommend you take a short course of anti inflammatories. Before taking, always check with your health professional just to ensure you are fine first and able to consume those pills.

To settle the incredible sensitivity and achieve the best results, you should do these personally so as to settle this incredible sensitivity presented at the meeting.

Other than, you need to do exercises based extensively on slip disc. This is so that your bulging disc will be reduced into its correct position between the vertebrael.

Begin by lying on your stomach. If the pain is sensitive and unbeatable, use 1 or 2 pillows and put them underneath your belly. If you can, apply this for an hour or two.
This is not set in stone. So you are free to change the number of times you do this and also depending upon how your pain is responding. Nothing is a case of no pain-no gain though, and if any exercises aggravate your pain, you should ease off or stop doing them altogether.

Once pain settles, begin to prop yourself up slowly but steadily to create more extension in your lower back.

By propping yourself up, you may wish to just rest yourself slightly up on to your elbows for a few seconds while lying flat on your stomach.

Once this gets easier, prop yourself up a little higher for a count of 5-10, maybe even beginning to push yourself up with your hands. While doing this, it is important that you only lift up from the waist while keeping your legs flat on the floor.

I am sure you can see the point here. Simply adopt and maintain a position of relative extension for your lower back for 1 to 2 days. But try not to do too much too soon. If not, you could just end up pinching on the disc bulge and aggravate matters.
