Continue to read to learn different aspects of slipped disc disease and physiotherapy treatment for that.

We should start with an overview of a slipped disc.

The wear and tear in the spine can cause damage to soft muscle tissue, which can lead to excess pressure on bones and discs. It causes the disc to move from its alignment and cause disc herniation (commonly called a slipped disc). It causes pain and difficulty handling day-to-day activities. 

To get the right treatment promptly, you must identify the symptoms of the disease. 

SlippedDisc

Let us see the symptoms of a slipped disc

  • Sudden and shooting pain: You may also experience that the pain in the upper back radiates to the arms, and the pain in the lower back radiates to the pelvis and legs.
  • The pain lasts for hours to several weeks at a stretch
  • You cannot sit or stand for an extended period. Sitting or standing for a long time only increases the pain. When you change your body position, you notice that the pain reduces.
  • Frequent and painful muscle spasms.

Now that we have learned about a slipped disc’s symptoms, we should know about the causes of the disease.

So, what are the causes of developing slipped disc?

The most common cause of slipped disc is aging. Over time, the vertebrae’s rigid encasement becomes brittle, and the gel inside slips through the cracks. However, there are other lifestyle-related causes like:

  • Strain and Occupational Stress: People in more physically demanding jobs are prone to a slipped disc.
  • Obesity and genetic factors: The excess weight in the body puts prolonged pressure on the backbone, leading to a slipped disc.
  • Accidents and Injuries: Unexpected physical damage from accidents can crack the vertebrae.
  • Gender: Studies have shown that men are more prone to slipped discs than women.
  • Most slipped: It can be treated non-surgically, with the aid of physiotherapy. Please seek treatment if symptoms persist over time.

How to diagnose the slipped disc disease?

If you are experiencing complications of a slipped disc, then you should visit our doctor. Here we will perform a thorough examination of your issue. We will perform a physical exam to check your muscles’ strength, nerve function, and the source of your pain. 

We may ask you to undergo an X-ray, MRI, CT scan to have a clear image of your problem area. Then we will advise the treatment plant for you.

So, how does the treatment go?

Depending on the severity of the case, a slipped disc can be treated in the following ways:

  • Medication and pain management: Pain can be controlled with various pain relief treatments, including medication. PHYSIOFITGURU offers a Cell Repair modalities Treatment that used frequency-specific microcurrents to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area.
  • Surgery: In rare cases, the pain doesn’t subside for a prolonged period (6 weeks or more), and surgery can help relieve the pressure on the nerve endings caused by Sciatica.
  • Spine rehabilitation: There are multiple approaches to physical therapy in spine care, and they can stabilize the spine and help patients with disabilities or restricted physical movement. It improves the mechanical functioning of the range, manages pain, promotes the regeneration of the affected tissue and disc, and improves strength and flexibility with functional training.
  • Requires six weeks of physiotherapy spinal rehabilitation
  • Even in the case of surgery, follow-up rehabilitation helps sustain and improve the results.
