My Philosophy of Herniated Disc Treatment


My Personal Rehabilitation Philosophy

I believe that disc rehabilitation needs to focus on two main goals:

  1. Centering the nucleus
  2. Restoring the moisture content of the disc

The Do's:

The Don'ts:

I maintain that gentle rehabilitation techniques should be utilized at all times, therefore:

With all of the above, be sure to check with your doctor or physical therapist before proceeding on your own. There may be extenuating circumstances that will require you to modify your particular home exercise program.

In most instances, you can rebuild your herniated discs with a home exercise program, but enlisting your doctor or a well-trained physical therapist to help you monitor the situation -- and advise you along the way -- may just mean the difference between success and failure.

Yes, it is possible to go it on your own. But why not make a little extra investment and, thereby, stack the odds in your favor?

Until next time,
