Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

I understand your concern. Physiotherapy is one of the treatment options available in the treatment of cervical disc prolapse. Here pain reduction occurs gradually; however if the pain is immense it advisable to avoid those.

In this circumstances, if I were to be your treating doctor, I would suggest you to continue the analgesics prescribed to you along with warm compresses. We can hold the physiotherapy till pain reduces. Restart it slowly after pain reduction.

Discuss this with your treating doctor.

Hope this helps.
