Slipped Disc and Disc Disorders Of The Back - Singapore Physiotherapy
Slipped Disc and Disc Disorders and Physiotherapy
More than seventy percent of adult suffers from a form of disc
disorder of their backs, and a big portion suffer from herniated disc.
More than half of these get prolonged and long term pain. It may not
always be the issue of the disc; back pain can be caused by joints,
ligaments, muscles and discs of the back.
the time, back pain is the result of trauma or injury, or poor prolonged
posture, as well as the cumulative stress on the back and spine...but
at times, other causes includes inflammations and more serious back
problems such as progressive disorders that can affect bone and joints.
In the case of slipped disc, it is a back problem where the disc in the
spinal column "slips" out of it usual position, between the spinal
columns, and may compress onto nerves, causing sciatica where patients
will experience radiating pain in the leg, foot and ankle. Some also
will report a sense of numbness as well as pins and needles.
father had a bout of disc slippage and herniation; and presented with
sciatica as well in March 2011, and we provided him with pain relief
exercises, as well as taught him exercises to maintain joint range and
how not to aggravate the condition. He had a keyhole surgery in that
month itself, and though the pain is not as severe as before, it still
comes and goes, affecting him once in a while.
our physiotherapy clinics in Raffles Place and Orchard Road (see how to get to us here); we assess and treat a variety of back and spinal problems, including
slipped disc. Clinically, we find the most important thing is that back
pain can be minimized, even prevented by strengthening the back muscles,
as well as increasing the flexibility of the spinal muscles on top of
not aggravating it by carrying heavy loads.
Physiotherapy interventions will/can involve a few approaches: posture management, Exercise and Movement therapy, joint Manipulation & Mobilization, Deep Tissue Massage and Electrotherapy.
Exercise physiotherapy may also be used to increase your general
fitness and/or to strengthen the muscles of the back and spine. We will
also share on preventative advice to decrease risks of re-injury and
recurrence of back pain.
