Recovery from a herniated disc
A herniated disc can occur after an accident or strenuous physical activity, or can simply develop over time. The injury can be extremely painful, and make it difficult to go about your day to day life as you might want to, and it can also take quite a long time to heal. Here are some tips on making your recovery go as fast as you possibly can.
Speak to a doctor
Your doctor will always be able to give you better advice on healing from injuries and illnesses than anyone else will be able to. This is because your doctor has your medical history and can examine you to ascertain exactly how badly you are injured and what the best course of treatment is likely to be. Visit a doctor as soon as you can, and follow their treatment advice to the letter.
Use a physical therapist
A physical therapist can help to ease the pain that you are in, but more importantly help your body to get back to normal, increasing your flexibility and range of movement as time goes on, and ensuring that you are stronger than ever by the time you have fully recovered. A physical therapist may be able to recommend other types of therapies you can try alongside your doctor’s treatments, to help with the pain.
Change your physical activity
If you have a very physical life, you will need to pull back a lot of what you do every day to allow your back a chance to heal. However, many people who are suffering from a herniated disc will try to have long periods of bed rest to ease the pain, but this can actually make the pain worse. Try to stay active, but minimally, so that your back can heal and recover.
