A herniated disc is a condition that occurs when the discs that make up the spine tear or slip, resulting in compression of the nerve roots. Symptoms of a herniated disc include pain, numbness, tingling, weakness and difficulty walking. How quickly a herniated disc resolves depends on the size and location of the herniated disc and the degree of pressure on the nerve root. In general, 85-90% of herniated disc cases are cured without surgery.


Rest: It is important to rest to relieve the pain caused by a herniated disc. Bed rest can help reduce herniated disc symptoms.

Painkillers: Taking painkillers or anti-inflammatory medications prescribed by your doctor can relieve pain.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy offers specialized exercises and treatment methods for people with a herniated disc. Your physical therapist will recommend muscle strengthening, stretching and posture correction exercises.

Hot or cold applications: Hot or cold compresses can relieve pain. Hot compresses can relax muscles, while cold compresses can reduce inflammation.

Exercise: With your doctor's approval, you can do exercises suitable for herniated discs. These exercises can help strengthen muscles, stretch and improve posture.

Epidural Steroid Injections: The doctor may recommend epidural steroid injections to reduce pain.

Surgical Intervention: In some cases where herniated disc treatment methods do not work or the condition is serious, surgical intervention may be necessary. You should discuss this decision with your doctor.

Herniated disc treatment may be different for each individual, so it is important to consult a doctor. Your doctor will perform an examination and, if necessary, may order imaging tests (for example, an MRI) to determine the most appropriate option for herniated disc treatment. You should always consult a health professional before using self-treatment methods.
