You cannot treat it yourself. Use an abdominal belt to stabilize the same. Surgery would be required if the pain is severe.

doctor1 MD

Avoid physical exertion. Use lumbosacral support. Surgery necessary.

Hi, Yes. Herniated discs can shrink down in size over time and pain will reduce. There are a number of treatment options before surgery will be considered. Gentle exercise such as swimming or cycling. Physiotherapy with manipulation, massage and exercises to build up core muscles can help. Pain killers as needed. If these measures fail, surgery may be needed. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger MBChB FRCA
