. This time we will tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of herniated disc treatments There are several methods to alleviate this condition and it is important that you know everything about them. If you suffer from a herniated disc, go to a specialist, do not self-medicate or ignore the symptoms.
Non-surgical treatment for herniated discs may consist of medication, rest and physical therapy to strengthen the back area. It may also require the application of special medications directly to the herniated disc to decrease inflammation and help the disc return to its place on its own.
Herniated disc surgery is used in cases where this condition prevents a person from functioning normally. It consists of removing or returning to place the damaged disc portion. It may also include the placement of metal plates to fix the bones.
As you can see, the best treatments for herniated discs depend on several factors: including your age, general health condition, state of the hernia and degree of deterioration of the spine. In any case, the first thing you need is to consult a specialist and obtain imaging studies of your spine.
