Hernia de Disco

Low back pain is a common cause of limitations to perform daily life activities, as well as of work absenteeism. One of the main causes of chronic low back pain is the degeneration of the intervertebral disc, which increases after the age of 40 and is caused by a cascade of multiple cellular, inflammatory and complex mechanical events that condition segmental instability in the functional unit.

). A prolapsed lumbar intervertebral disc can generate compression or irritation in one or more lumbosacral nerve roots, being the most common cause of sciatica or lumbosacral root syndrome (pain that radiates into the buttocks or legs and is associated with a tension in one or more lumbosacral nerve roots or neurological deficit).

Treatment for a herniated disc can be conservative or surgical.

A surgical treatment does not necessarily cure symptoms, since the success rate varies between 60-90%; in other words, between 10 and 40% of the patients do not have favorable results and will continue experiencing symptoms, between 3 and 12% will require a surgical re-intervention due to the recurrence of the herniated disc.

There are various techniques and therapeutic modalities that can help avoid the need for a surgical procedure; some of them stand out, including treatments focused on regenerating the intervertebral disc as well as antioxidant therapy, physical therapy and rehabilitation. Everything must go hand in hand with an adequate spinal hygiene that will give us the possibility of not requiring a surgical intervention so we can go back to performing our daily activities.

The Ovando Sanders Treatment has shown 98% effectiveness in patients with Lumbar Hernia, it is carried out in the course of a few weeks and without side effects.
