Physical Therapy in Cervical Lumbar Hernia

What is a Hernia?

The cushions between the vertebrae called discs provide equal distribution of the load and spinal dynamics. When this structure in the spine ruptures due to various reasons, a hernia occurs when the disc enters the spinal canal and nerve root and compresses it.

What are the Symptoms?

Nerves are responsible for transmitting orders to the relevant parts of the body, leaving the spinal cord. As a result of the resulting compression, different negative effects are seen in those areas.

A cervical hernia can manifest itself as numbness, pain and weakness in the arm. It can also cause gait disturbances in the following period.

Symptoms of herniated disc are,

• Lower back, leg pain

• Numbness in the feet

• Difficulty walking

• Impotence

• Urinary incontinence

• Night pains

• Morning stiffness

Physical Therapy in Lumbar and Neck Hernia

In physical therapy, pain-reducing physical therapy agents and medical massage are beneficial in reducing pain during periods when pain caused by hernia is high. In the period when the pain starts to decrease, it is supported by exercise to strengthen the muscles and reduce the load on the spine. After the physical therapy process is over, the patient is informed about the requirements and information about continuing sports.
