The chemonucleolysis treatment is regarded as a viable alternative to the disc surgery. There are 3 variants of disc injuries and in the case of lumbar disc protrusion the disc could be intact but there is an unwanted bulge. On the other hand, the fibrous wrapper may tear allowing the nucleus pulposus to ooze out but is still joined with the disc. In the case of a sequestered disc, a small part of the fragment may have broken free from the nucleus pulposus and is moving in the spinal canal. The chemonucleolysis for herniated disc could be an effective treatment in the extruded and protruded discs but it wouldn't be able to help much in the case of a sequestered disc. Before conducting any kind of herniated disc cure, an oncologist would assess whether you are a good candidate for the treatment and exercises for herniated lumbar disc. It is generally speculated that if the patient is aged between 18 to 50 years and suffer from unbearable leg pain that has not been cured through any medication or other treatment option and if that individual wants to avoid surgery he/she may opt for this treatment. It is important to pinpoint the exact area where the herniated disc is pressing on the local nerve through a CT scan, an MRI, and a myelography. Also, there are some situations where your oncologist would want to avoid the chymopapain injection. This enzyme is derived from the papaya fruit and it has been estimated that about 0.3 percent of individuals are allergic to this fruit. Hence, assessing the benefits with the help of a medical practitioner is essential.
