What is a herniated disc
It is said that a soft bone protrudes between the hip bone and the lumbar bone, and this soft bone is a disc.
A spinal disease in which a disc in the lower back (lumbar spine) protrudes and presses on the nerve next to it is called a “lumbar disc”
In general, numbness and tension in the legs appear along with back pain, and even in the same back, the pain area varies depending on the location where the nerve is pressed.
Symptoms may appear in one area, such as the lower back, buttocks, thighs, calves, back of the foot, soles, or toes, symptoms may appear in multiple areas, and symptoms may appear in one or both legs.
Comparison of herniated disc and spinal stenosis
A herniated disc and spinal stenosis are often mistaken for each other because of numbness in the buttocks, legs, or feet.
On the other hand, in spinal stenosis, there is no pain when bending forward, but the pain worsens when bending backwards, and it is difficult to get up from lying down, but once you move, you can feel the back soften a little.
symptoms of herniated disc
As the disc prolapses, it stimulates the nerves in the lower back. Therefore, the pain often comes strongly when bending or bending the lower back.
I also have a herniated disc, numbness in my legs. The pain is so severe that daily life becomes difficult.
This is because the surrounding ligaments and muscles in the lower back are weakened and the nerves are compressed.
At first, people mistake it for a simple pain, but when the symptoms get worse, the pain also comes when you sneeze or cough.
In addition, the symptoms of a herniated disc appear to the extent that it is impossible to lift the leg while lying down.
Therefore, when these symptoms occur, it is important to think of it as a herniated disc and consult a specialist for treatment.
How to treat herniated disc
-Tuina (correction) treatment
When a bone is punctured, the disc between them is pushed out to the side and presses on the nerve, causing pain.
At this time, if the bones are corrected with Tuina therapy and the sagging joints of the whole body are tightened, the disc will not be pushed and the pain will stop because it is separated from the nerve.
Diseases covered by Tuina treatment include lumbar disc, cervical disc, lumbar disc, low back pain, lumbar sprain, sciatica, headache, migraine, neck pain, arthritis, scoliosis, shoulder pain, shoulder arthritis, and cerebrospinal joint disorder. Sacroiliac joint displacement, myofascial pain syndrome, other diseases (stress, strain and inflammation, spondylolysis, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative degeneration of the spine, knee disease, etc.)
When the communication of qi is not smooth due to a misaligned joint, acupuncture helps to facilitate the circulation of the qi and blood, which is acupuncture, to relieve the stiff muscles around the shoulder and facilitate joint movement.
Physical therapy uses heat, ice, air, light, electricity, electromagnetic waves, ultrasound, mechanical force, gravity, etc. to relieve pain, promote tissue healing, and improve body movement for specific purposes refers to the procedure to obtain
