A HOLISTIC PLAN FROM OUR PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Physical therapy can do wonders to relieve your herniated disc symptoms and help you ward off future bouts of pain or neuropathy from this annoying problem. Your physical therapist will start by evaluating your condition carefully. We will discuss your medical history, any specific incident (such as a heavy- lifting mishap) that may have herniated a disc, and analyze your symptoms in detail. We will also X-ray your spine to pinpoint the exact spot where the herniation occurs. These initial steps enable us to give you the most accurate and effective care possible. Your personalized treatment prescription may call for a mix of physical therapy techniques. For instance, if your herniated disc has caused your back or neck muscles to seize up painfully, you may benefit from massage therapy to ease those spasms and make your muscles limber enough to exercise. Ice, heat, and cold laser treatments can also reduce pain and inflammation; this may prove especially helpful if your herniated disc was accompanied by other soft tissue injuries. We may even recommend chiropractic adjustment or traction to help take pressure off of nerve tissue. Physical therapy exercises may play a key role in easing your herniated disc troubles.
Examples may include: • Core exercises to help you build the strength and stability in your lower back, thus straightening and normalizing your posture • Flexibility exercises to help improve your range of motion and reduce your risks for future neck or back injuries • Extremity or balance exercises to help you rebuild muscle atrophy caused by nerve compression Once you have recovered from that herniated disc, you want to make sure you don’t give yourself another one. Anything you can do to keep musculoskeletal stresses and strains at a minimum will help you ward off disc issues going forward. We may recommend lifestyle changes such as weight loss or improved workplace ergonomics to help you protect your spine. We can also provide ongoing fitness counseling and exercise recommendations for a lifetime of better health, comfort, and function.
