Plantation / PRC - Herniated Disc
When the sponge-like discs that cushion the vertebrae in your spine break or rupture, a herniated disc occurs. These slipped discs often press upon a nerve in the back that causes unpleasant symptoms such as numbness, weakness, and pain. Fortunately, the treatment for a herniated disc is fairly simple and straightforward, with most sufferers finding relief from their herniated disc pain within a few weeks. Relax The Back in Plantation has many different products that will improve your at-home pain relief treatment. Bed rest, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, and heat therapy are all at home treatments that promote the rejuvenation of your spine. You can also take at-home pain relief treatment to the next level with products that promote a healthier spine, such as ergonomic office chairs and mattresses that support your spine curvature.
If at first the pain is too extreme for movement, take a break from any activities that irritate your spine and find a comfortable place to rest. Relax The Back in Plantation can be a helpful tool for finding a relaxing, spine-friendly place to rest your back and allow it to heal. Too much bed rest, however, can be a bad idea. If your herniated disc pain permits, take a short walk every few hours to keep the muscles in your back engaged and healthy.
Another effective way to find pain relief from your herniated disc is to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication — talk to your doctor about which medication may be right to treat your pain. Ice and heating pads are also helpful in reducing inflammation and reducing herniated disc pain.
