There is one thing we all do every day that makes our herniated discs, sciatica, back pain and neck pain worse. If you continue to do these things you will very often prevent your condition from getting better
When we are performing our herniated disc treatment we see patients that have bad habits that until they eliminate these activities the progress of their care is slow.
The task is using their cell phones. When you have your neck flexed forward for an extended period of time the result is to overload the spine and the discs. If discs are overloaded for too long they become painful and broken down. The end result is herniated discs, pain and headaches.
We advise all our patients that are in our herniated disc treatment to adapt better posture when using their cell phone. There are a few activities that will prevent your back pain and herniated discs from getting better. Texting and using cell phones is definitely one of them.
The key to our herniated disc treatment is to eliminate the cause of the problem. In this case the cause of the herniated disc it the pressure from the forward head, neck and upper body posture. We have the ability with our herniated disc treatment to eliminate the pressure on the disc thereby eliminating the herniation.
We have several MRI evaluations that show that herniated discs can go away. The key is to eliminate the cause. If you are suffering with a herniated disc your goal needs to be to eliminate the cause. Finding more ergonomic texting positions will definitely help..
