Disc Disorders of the Back
Those suffering from Disc Disorders often feel excruciating pain and such pain is a warning sign that should be heeded. If tackled early and quickly, pain from Disc Disorders can normally be eliminated.
The pain caused by Disc Disorders of the back can be hard to ignore and are normally alleviated from lying flat on ones back, and can exacerbated by sudden movements like sneezing.
Sometimes this pain can be caused by a damaged nerve ending and in this case the pain may be felt across the entirety of the nerve.
Back pain is often prevented by keeping the back muscles flexible and strong. Repetitive forward bending or twisting with heavy weights can make you more predisposed to having issues with your back. Learning how to lift and move objects correctly ensure you don’t overload your back.
Treatment can involve postural education (see Postural Assessment & Dysfunction), acupuncture, exercise and movement instruction, joint manipulation and mobilisation, massage and a variety of other techniques and modalities.
