Herniated Disc

A Herniated Disc is often referred to as a ‘slipped disc’.  However, contrary to popular belief, discs cannot ‘slip’.  The discs within our spine are exceptionally strong and robust.  What can happen though is discs can herniate or bulge.  It is vital that our language here is understood as it can affect individuals beliefs and expectation outcomes.

However it is understood, the patient is usually in a high degree of pain.  The good news is that these symptoms can pass with non-surgical treatment.  Once upon a time the recommendation for this condition was bed rest, for up to two weeks! Times have changed since then and now the recommended advice centres on movement and controlled exercises.
