Hello I have been experiencing upper and lower bach pain for about year now. Moreover my upper back pain goes on increasing. What should I do. Any exercises.
The symptoms caused due to herniated disc can be very severe and can also cause a bit of disability. The disc of the spine is like a cushion and separates the set of bones on the backside. The discs are shock absorbers of the spine and are mainly composed of 2 parts, a soft jelly centre called the nucleus and a tough outer covering called the annulus.
Effects of Herniated Disk
A herniated or cracked disc is a severe condition and it seems to happen most commonly in the lower back. It happens when a fraction of the soft centre gets pushed through the destabilized area due to degeneration, trauma or by putting pressure on the spinal cord.
Nerves are located precisely at the back of every disc and are responsible for controlling everything in our body. While a disc gets herniated, the external covering of the disc tears and creates a bulge. The soft jelly gets shifted from the centre of the disk to the region where the damage has occurred on the disc. Most commonly, the bulge occurs in areas where the nerve is located and it causes strain on the affected nerve. It has been observed that individuals do not feel any painful sensations even if their disc gets damaged.
When is Surgery Recommended for Herniated Disc?
Surgery for herniated disc is recommended only after options like steroid injections, pain relievers, exercise and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs do not work. If the pain persists even after these options, then it becomes important to go for surgery. There are certain risks involved in this surgery like infection, bleeding or nerve damage.
There are chances that the disc may get ruptured again if it is not removed. If you are a patient suffering from degenerative disc disease, then there are chances that problem occurs in other discs. It is very important that a patient maintains healthy weight to prevent any further complications.
The main factor that increases the risk of herniated disc is excess body weight, which causes a lot of stress on the lower back. A few people become heir to a tendency of developing this condition. Even individuals with physically demanding jobs are prone to this condition.
Activities like bending sideways, pushing, twisting, repetitive lifting can increase the risk of a herniated disk. At times, emergency surgery is also required to avoid paralysis in a patient. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

Lat Stretch on Stability Ball
Flexibility in the latissimus muscle is important for good posture. When this muscle is tight it pulls the shoulders forward, separates the shoulder blades,and contributes to “rounded shoulders.” This stretch helps to lengthen the muscle.
1.Sit up with your knees and toes on the floor and head facing forward. Place both hands on top of the stability ball with your palms up.
2.Slowly roll the ball away from you as you move your upper body into a flat back position.Once you feel slight tension, hold this position for 20 to 30 seconds and return to the start position.
Modification: Support the flat back position with one hand on the ground directly under the shoulder and stretch the opposite arm before switching.
Kneeling One Arm Reach on Stability Ball
Limited range of motion above the head is often due to tight upper back muscles. Releasing the tension in these muscles can improve the ability to perform activities that require reaching above the head. Whether you’re serving a tennis ball or reaching for a high shelf, this is an excellent stretch to improve mobility.
1. From the kneeling position, rotate the hips back to your heels and place your right hand on top of the stability ball in front of you.
2.Raise your hips and extend your right arm over the ball until your torso is parallel to the floor and your right arm is fully extended. Feel the stretch along your right side and then repeat with the left arm.
TIP: For an alternative to kneeling,stand with the stability ball against the wall from shoulder height to overhead. Step closer to the wall as your arm reaches higher.
It’s easy to forget how often we depend upon back rotation in daily activities,such as lifting a bag of groceries or throwing a ball. This series of movement isolates the upper back and strengthens the mid-torso and back muscles.
1. Begin on your hands and knees with your back level and abdomen tight. Place your right hand behind your head with your elbow pointing straight out.
2.Rotate your torso inward,keeping your hand on your head and drawing your right elbow toward your left hand. Turn as far as possible until you feel a complete stretch.
3.To complete the movement,rotate your torso upward as far as possible until you feel the stretch along your left side. Repeat this sequence 3 to 5 times and switch to the left side.
Keep your head and neck in line with your back and open your chest
