What Is The Treatment For Disc Herniation In The Neck?

Therapy for neck disc herniation consists of many steps, and apart from emergencies (which are very rare), following these steps is the most accurate, scientific and ethical method. The first step is bed-rest treatment, meaning you just have to rest all day with a proper collar on your neck, until the pain resolves. By a proper collar, I mean that it may be thin, soft and comfortable to use; or it may be a kind that encloses the entire jaw and chest and never allows neck movements. The important thing is, whichever your doctor recommends; your must wear it continuously while sitting and standing. Use special neck pillows in the bed, they are sold in separate sizes for men and women. Adjust your head restraint at the top of your seat in a car such that it always touches the back of your head, and take this warning throughout your entire life. Your doctor will also prescribe you some medicine. Use these only for the period as recommended by your doctor.

Physical therapy is the second step, but if possible for 20 sessions, ie for 1 month. It is very important that you are well protected from cold weather before and after the physical therapy sessions. In other words, physiotherapy is best suited when nearest to your home or workplace. This treatment must be able to make you feel comfortable for at least one year. You will not have to experience the same problem again if you make the exercises prescribed during the physical therapy sessions regularly and even make them a part of your life.

The third and last step is various surgical procedures. So surgery should always be the last resort. What I did not do in fact assures what I do…
