Conservative treatment of disc herniations

Home » Blog » Conservative treatment of disc herniations

Studies suggest that one out of every four Americans will experience some form of low back pain in their life. Low back pain can vary from musculo-skeletal disorders to nerve injury. Diagnosis of these conditions should be provided by an appropriate health care practitioner. After consult and diagnostics are performed an appropriate treatment plan can be implemented. Treatment can vary from stabilization to stretching and flexibility exercises. One of the most popular of all back conditions is a disc herniation. The discs in our spine are there to maintain vertebrae height and act as shock absorption for the spine. When a spinal segment becomes to mobile or trauma is introduced the fluid filled disc can bulge or become herniated. The first stage is conservative management and a balance between strength and flexibility. It is important to remember that every low back pain sufferer should be treated differently and treatment will vary from patient to patient.

Having numerous orthopedic problems over the years Jon & Charles are the answers to my aches and pains. Anytime I needed physical therapy they are the only people I trust. When I learned they were opening PSR I was one of their first patients. You could not find two more compassionate gentlemen dedicated to improving their patient’s well being. They put the Care in healthcare. - Diane C


My daughter has a form of cerebral palsy that weakens one side of her body. She can walk, but she’s always had to wear a brace to support her weak ankle and foot. After one month of Physical Therapy at Progressive Sports Rehab she has made more progress than ever before. Her Doctor has said she no longer has to wear her brace that set her apart from everyone else. We are elated!! - Jacqui W.
