Top 3 Exercises For Herniated Discs
A great exercise for disc herniation especiallyif the person has symptoms down the leg is a prone prop. A prone prop is laying onyour stomach propped up on the elbows. We hold this position in the for 2 minutes.Pretty simple. If this is too difficult and it is too much extension, too much bending backward,here is what we can do. Same idea here. We are propping up on a pillow. We arenot neutral. We are slightly beyond that. Same idea. What we are doing is we are compressingthe disc moving it forward away from the nerve relieving the symptoms downthe leg. Normally what will happen is if the person has symptoms into their lower leg andit moves forward in this direction, that is
called centralization. That is exactly whatwe are looking for. The next exercise is the prone press up. Itis a press up from the stomach position. You are going to start right here. Keep yourwaist and legs flat on the table. You are going to press up here, Becca. Hold that fora second or two and them back down. In our , we hold it at the top for 5 secondsand go up to 20 repetitions. We do it 20 times. The modification for somebody who can'tgo back that far. Start right here and press up halfway then back down. You can doit like that or you can put your hands forward and press up. Same idea just limitingthe range of motion. But as you are
doing this, if it is the right exercise foryou and you have symptoms in your leg, you should feel it moving towards your back. Whenyou don't have symptoms in your leg and they are only your back, you are doingthe right thing. For people who work all day long and theyhave a disc herniation, this is a great exercise that they can do throughout the day.What you are going to do is you are going to stand like this with your hands onthe low back, bend back and back up. The modification is you can put your hands onthe wall and do the same exact thing. Your hands would be on the wall like this, doingthe same exact thing. Take your belly button
towards the wall.
Common Causes of Back Pain
My name is Stephen Levin. I'm a Johns Hopkins Pain Medicine specialistpracticing at Howard County General . There are multiple different origins of backpain. They can range from the very minor to thevery severe. Muscle strains or sprains can cause spasmand the most common cause of back pain.fortunately, they can be very selflimited and go awayby themselves. Patients can suffer inflammation or arthritis,which can affect the joints in the back including the sacroiliac joints and the facet jointswhich can cause pain with movement.
There can also be pain that is referred fromthe hip. Patients can also experience degenerativedisc disease which can cause what we call axial back pain, which is pain in the middleof the back and in some cases those discs can herniate and create what we call sciaticaor radiculopathy and this is a result of pressure from the disc on the nerves in the back. Posture or scoliosis, which is a curvatureof the back, can lead to biomechanical back pain, which is pain caused by abnormal movement. Some individuals can experience infectionswhich can lead to back pain.
Some of those are very unusual infectionsthat include tuberculosis or lyme disease or can be a more common from bacterial infectionsand that can infect the bone or the epidural space. Patients or individuals as they age can experiencethinning of their bone or experience osteoporosis and that can be so severe that the bones fractureand cause back pain. And in some cases patients with kidney, breast,lung, thyroid and prostate cancers can have their disease spread to the back and thatcan also cause back pain. The diagnosis of low back pain starts witha careful medical history along with a complete
physical examination. If those examinations suggest concerns, thenblood tests, xrays, CT scans, and MRIs are sometimes needed in aiding the diagnosis. In some cases, we use diagnostic injectionsthat are xray guided to help facilitate the diagnosis. Most people experience back pain in theirlives. The peak incidence of back pain can occurat two different times in life. One time that it occurs most often is in themid30s when people's discs start to dry out
and they can be susceptible to injuries fromlifting which can cause disc herniation. Later in life the incidence will go up againand will be associated with degenerative processes associated with aging so patients will experiencemore arthritic problems in the back or the thinning of their bones or osteoporosis. In general, it's good to avoid lifting injuries,poor body mechanics, and it's also good to maintain a good body weight and have a balancedexercise program. Doing these things can lessen the likelihoodthat you'll experience back pain in your life. Determining the best treatment for back paincan involve the thoughtful application of
interventional techniques, medication management,as well as rehabilitative and wellness programs. Our program offers a full spectrum of themost sophisticated medication management, highly specialized interventional pain managementtechniques, as well as rehabilitative and wellness programs. The mainstay of conservative treatment forpatients with back pain is the use of physical therapy. It can be also very helpful for individualsto use short courses of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, oral steroids,or even in some cases a short course of opioid
