How to treat a slipped disc?

Hi, I am 28 years old. I have a slip disk in my lower back. It hurts me a lot. Sometimes it is very difficult to even walk I used to practice Yoga a few years ago. But off late got lazy/busy and not practicing yoga now. I am putting around 14-16 hours infront of computer per day. And my situation is worsening. I need to get rid of this pain. What do you suggest I must do?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to a herniated disk.
I suggest to use anti inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the pain.
I also suggest physical therapy and gentle stretching exercises.
If the pain continues, you should consult a neurologist for further evaluation.


Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
