Treatment of Lumbar Disc Problems

Do you want to know how your Osteopath can help treat a lumbar disc injury? Keep reading!

Before beginning treatment, your Osteopath will take a full history and do a thorough assessment to determine the most likely cause of your pain, and help guide their treatment.

Treatment can help to reduce muscle tightness, reduce pain, and improve your mobility. Your osteopath may also treat other areas of the body that may be contributing to the issue, such as the hips or mid back. The specific treatment techniques used vary from person to person.

Your Osteopath will give you advice on ergonomics, and how to modify your daily activities, to help manage your pain. They may also prescribe home stretches and exercises to initially help manage your pain, and at later appointments, may prescribe exercises to help strengthen your muscles to prevent the issue from occurring in the future.
