Top 3 Reasons for Lower Back Pain
- Arthritis, Stenosis, Disc Degeneration
- Herniated Disc, Sciatica
- Pelvis, SI Joint
What Does it Look Like?
With a herniated disc, the disc pushes backwards into the nerves stemming off of the spinal cord. The herniated disc itself is not painful. The pressure on the nerve is the source of the pain. Pressure on the nerve (commonly called a pinched nerve) can lead to pain, tingling, numbness, heaviness and weakness in the legs, groin, buttocks, feet and back.
With a healthy spine, the disc material does not press on the nerve. The disc stays in its defined space.
Can I Heal My Herniated Disc?
If you took 100 people without back pain and gave them all an MRI, how many would have a bulging disc or worse?
People with bulging and herniated discs can be pain free. Research shows that it is possible to heal a herniated disc naturally without medications, injections and surgery.
It does require finding exactly what is causing your pain and doing the right treatments to address the specific problem.
Successful non-surgical treatment involves pushing the disc material forward away from the nerve and strengthening the stomach and lower back muscle to prevent the herniation from happening again.
