Physiotherapy Treatment for Herniated Discs

What is a Neck or Back Herniated Disc?

Herniated DiscHerniated Discs occur in the lower back or neck. You may sense leg or arm pain with numbness or tingling sensation along with muscle weakness impairing your ability to lift and hold items. Other times, you may not experience any symptoms of a herniated disc.

When you sense worsening pain or a sensation traveling from your leg or arm, you need to seek medical attention to find the cause of pain. Some of the factors that cause herniated discs in the neck and back include:

  • Injuries such as whiplash
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Genetics
  • Overuse syndrome
  • Poor posture
  • Occupation (physically demanding job)

Your physiotherapist will perform a series of test to determine the physical tests to determine if you are having trouble walking, feeling muscle weakness or tightness, reflexes ability, and more. Your physiotherapist will then develop a plan, consisting of exercises that require you to bend and twist, weight training exercises, and other alternative methods.

Common Treatment Options:

  • Interferential current
  • TENS
  • Chiropractic and massage therapy
  • Laser therapy
  • Rehabilitation exercises
  • Acupuncture
  • Ultrasound
