The disc slip treatment generally takes about 1 to 3 months and it normally involves exercise, physiotherapy, and medications, while disc surgery may be recommended in some extreme cases. The surgery would help to relieve the pressure on the affected nerve and may also need removal of a part of the herniated disc. In many instances, it has been observed that the spinal disc herniation gradually shrinks back on its own, thereby easing the pain when the disc moves away from pressing the nerve. Sometimes the brain can reduce the pain signals arising from the nerve which allows the individual not to feel the pain even though the disc is still pressing on the nerve. If you have a slipped disc, your general physician would recommend you to remain fit and active which may be difficult initially but can be improved with gradual trials. This is particularly suggested if you have slipped disc in the lower back as it prevents the joints from becoming stiff and keeps your back moving in order to speed up the process of recovery. If you suffer from the slipped disc symptoms you must indulge in a gentle workout and avoid straining exercises under any circumstances. Avoid heavy impact workouts like jumping, twisting or even running as they may aggravate the pain. While the treatment results in fast resumption of normal activities, having a fit and healthy lifestyle with good posture (whether you are sitting or standing) is the key to preventing slipped disc problems.
