The scapegoat for so much back pain.
Could a disc herniation be the cause of pain? Sure.
Could it be other things as well? Yep.
True symptomatic disc herniations are actually quite rare AND most people will be able to recover from these without surgery.
Many people think that in order to feel better the disc must “heal” or resorb. This is not always the case.
Many of us are actually living with disc bulges and herniations and we don’t even know about it.
We don’t need to fear herniations so much!
What are your thoughts? Have you had a disc hernaition in the past, were you able to recover from it? Would love to hear your experiences!
