CAN DISC HERNIATIONS HEAL?Sep 09, 2018
💥 It is high time to retrain the misinformation pipe line regarding back pain! Today let’s look at hermiations💥
⚪️Disc herniations are common
⚪️ Despite imaging results, disc herniations are often found in asymptomatic individuals
This may not be a consolation if you’ve got one and it hurts but...
⚪️ Herniated disc can heal over time (both of mine have btw)
⚪️ A smart treatment plan with conservative therapeutic support is key. .
Research (citation at bottom) shows that spontaneous regression of herniated disc tissue can occur, and sometimes it completely resolves!
Here are the rates of spontaneous regression:
👍 96% for disc sequestration, with 46% Complete Resolution
👍 70% for disc extrusion, with 15% Complete Resolution
👍 41% for disc protrusion
👍 13% for disc bulging.
