Intervertebral disk treatment and rehabilitation will consist of hands-on treatment in the practice to help improve movement and give you pain relief.
You will also be shown how to protect your back, what activities are safe and what should be avoided while you recover.
Home care for intervertebral disk herniations will consist of repetitive movements into a pain-free zone, specific stretches and core stabilising exercises.
Bed rest is not recommended, however it can provide temporary relief if necessary. But it is important to continue to stay active so that the stabilising muscles of the spine don’t become weak as this could delay recovery.
Muscle imbalances and movement issues will continue to be monitored throughout your recovery. The goal is to restore proper biomechanics and core strength with rehabilitation exercises.
