Some herniated discs heal within months or even weeks. Applying alternate heat and cold therapy and alternative therapies, such as physio, massage, acupuncture, and professional chiropractic treatment, speed up healing.
Chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy, massage therapy, hot and cold packs, physical therapy, oral medications, and/or steroid injections can heal the pain and inflammation associated with a herniated disc.
Sleeping in the fetal position is the best way to sleep when you suffer a herniated disc. Lie on your back and then slowly roll over to your side. Turn your knees inwards towards your chest. Throughout the night, switch sides to prevent any imbalances.
Yes. Staying active is one of the recommendations doctors and physical therapists give patients with a herniated disc. Walking stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the cells and keeps spinal discs hydrated, healing them quicker. Other practical low-impact aerobic activities are cycling and swimming.
If you have a herniated disc, you should avoid doing anything that puts more stress on your spinal discs. This includes sitting too much, especially while slouching forward, vacuuming, doing laundry, shovelling snow, or doing other strenuous exercises.
Herniated disc pain should get better within days and completely heal in 4 to 6 weeks. Ensure that you rest adequately, only carry out low-impact movements, use cold and heat therapy, and take the appropriate OTC medications to help recovery.
