Treatments for a Slipped Disc

A slipped disc can happen without warning and render those suffering with large amounts of pain and limited mobility. Our spine is what holds our whole body up and when its integrity is compromised it can not only be agonising but also throw the rest of our body’s alignment out – causing even more pain in other parts of the body.

Here at The Health Lodge, we are dedicated to helping find our clients not only an effective remedy for their aches and pains but also discovering what needs to be done in order to strengthen the body and prevent the same injury happening again.

One of the main focusses that we have in the instance of a slipped disc is on physiotherapy or sports therapy which works by reducing the inflammation and spasming of muscles around the afflicted area in order to allow the body to heal itself.

Bespoke Treatment Plans

We know that everyone’s body, and everyone’s pain, is different and that is why we treat each of our clients as an individual and take the utmost care to tailor all treatment plans to each person.

It may be that a number of treatments used in tandem may give the best results and we may also recommend a programme of core strengthening to help protect the back going forward.

Treatments that are often used in the instance of a slipped disc include:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Osteopathy
  • Cold laser diode therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Medical acupuncture or dry needling
  • Acupressure or trigger point therapy
  • Lymphatic drainage
