Continuing to work with herniated dics...

Recommended Posts

I am just curious if anyone has ever herniated a disc or discs and continues to work post treatment? What was your treatment and was the injury from a specific trauma or cumulative? Thanks

I had a herniated disk. Was treated with a series of 3 epidurals and steroids via the epidural and was back on the job in 4 weeks.

still had pain, was on light duty for 3 more weeks but no residual effects.

I was lucky, one of my friends same service, became totally disabled due to herniated disks.

It's all in how you respond to treatment and how committed you are to make that treatment work.

I had a minor one from improper lifting of a fridge.

It still bothers me time to time, I just try to focus exercises on my back and keep that portion toned. Keep your back strong that is the #2 best thing you can do.

Some suggest chiropractic. I won't recommend one way or another.
