• Find Relief from Slipped Discs with Physiotherapy

    A slipped disc, or herniated disc, is a common condition that affects many adults worldwide. In 60% to 80% of adults experiencing lower back pain, a slipped disc is one of the most common causes.

    Slipped disc pain is usually caused when one of the rubbery discs between the vertebrae in the spine slips out of place, causing inflammation and pressure on nearby nerves and resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. This condition usually causes sharp pain and is highly uncomfortable for patients, significantly affecting a person's quality of life.

    Physiotherapy helped many with an effective treatment option for a slipped disc, not only reducing pain but also improving mobility. Dr. Rathee is a highly trained and experienced physiotherapist who works with patients with a tailored and customised treatment plan that includes exercises, manual therapy, and other techniques to reduce pain and restore mobility.

Understand the Causes of a Slipped Disc

  • In a few cases, a herniated disc or a slipped disc can occur without any clear cause. However, making proper lifestyle changes like maintaining a healthy weight, practising good posture, avoiding repetitive movements, and quitting smoking can help reduce the risk of developing a herniated disc. Here are some causes of a slipped disc (herniated disc) presented in points:
  • Age: As you get older, your spinal discs become less flexible and more prone to tearing or rupturing
  • Injury: Trauma or injury to your spine can cause a disc to herniate
  • Genetics: Herniated discs may run in some people's families
  • Repetitive Movements: Repeatedly bending or twisting your spine or performing heavy lifting tasks can increase the risk of a disc herniation
  • Obesity: Carrying excess weight can put extra pressure on your spine and discs, increasing the risk of herniation
  • Poor posture: Sitting or standing in a hunched or slouched position for extended periods of time can put stress on your spine and discs
  • Smoking: Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes can cause discs to lose their elasticity, making them more susceptible to injury
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: This condition is caused by wear and tear on your discs over time and can lead to herniation
  • Spinal Stenosis: This is a narrowing of the spinal canal that can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, leading to herniation

Physiotherapy : A Proven Solution for Slipped Disc Pain Relief

  • Physiotherapy helped many patients with the treatment of a slipped disc. Here are the different physiotherapy treatments available at Dr. Rathee Physiotherapy Clinic for a slipped disc:
  • Exercise Therapy: Exercise therapy helps to strengthen the muscles surrounding the affected area, improve flexibility, and increase mobility. Exercise therapy includes stretching exercises, core-strengthening exercises, and aerobics
  • Manual Therapy: Hand techniques used by a skilled physiotherapist to manipulate the joints, muscles, and soft tissues surrounding the afflicted area in order to enhance mobility, reduce pain, and increase range of motion
  • TENS Therapy: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) therapy employs electrical impulses to relieve pain and inflammation by promoting the creation of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers
  • Heat and cold therapy: heat therapy helps reduce muscle spasms and inflammation, and cold therapy helps reduce pain and swelling. The therapist may recommend alternating between the two therapies
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Ultrasound therapy promotes healing and reduces inflammation and pain
  • Spinal Traction: Spinal traction involves the use of a machine to gently stretch the spine. This therapy helps to reduce pressure on the nerves and discs, which can reduce pain and improve mobility
