Lower Back Herniated Disc

Stop Living with Pain

A herniated disc in the lower back can be an extremely painful injury and makes it difficult to perform even everyday tasks. With physical therapy, however, you may find you can start to get some relief from your pain and return to the activities you enjoy. 

Here’s what you need to know about lower back herniated disc treatment with physical therapy.

What Causes a Herniated Disc?

An intervertebral disc can herniate or rupture, meaning it pushes through its outer wall. When a disc herniates, it can put pressure on your spinal cord or nearby nerves. This can cause severe pain and inflammation in your back and neck, which is why you should seek treatment from a physical therapist as soon as possible. With a plan of action from our PTs, your road to recovery could be easier than you think!

Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

The consequences of a herniated disc can be serious and potentially debilitating. Symptoms include intense pain, tingling sensations, numbness and muscle weakness. If you experience any of these symptoms for more than 3 days, see your doctor immediately. You may have a herniated disc and should seek treatment right away.

How Is a Herniated Disc Treated With Physical Therapy?

The first step toward treating a herniated disc is to see a physical therapist. They will examine your spine and ask about your symptoms before determining if you have a herniated disc. 

If surgery isn’t recommended for treatment, physical therapy may help ease pain and speed up recovery time for some people with herniated discs. 

With proper care and management of a herniated disc, many patients are able to live relatively normal lives without needing invasive treatments like surgery.
