A herniated disc is an injury requiring the best physical therapy due to a projected long recovery period. Recovery is only prolonged by improper physical therapy treatment. The spine is supported by discs separating the vertebrae and acting as soft, compressible, shock absorbers. A herniated disc is ruptured– bulging – and has been left untreated. When the alignment of the vertebrae is disrupted, pressure is placed on the nerves of the spine – causing severe pain, immobility, and radiating pain.

Causes of Herniated Disc

Disc injuries cause a vast array of pain throughout the body and worsen through bending, twisting, and reaching movements.

  • Sudden injury
  • Sudden trauma
  • Gradual spinal degeneration over time left untreated

Nerve impingement from a herniated disc causes great pain and stress along the spine and can radiate to other appendages and areas of the body.
