For all practical purposes, everyone on this forum who is experiencing back pain has one thing in common. Their medical practitioner, be they a surgeon, a Chiropractor or whatever, is missing the source of the problem. Muscle tension is what makes a disc bulge, or "slip". But what makes the muscles be tense? It is likely from an unconscious pattern of protection, on which exercise or strengthening or drugs are not going to have any effect. What is needed is to address the underlying pattern, and when that pattern is gone, the muscles can then relax, and the body will return to normal, without the pain.

Hey, I'm from Texas and my father had faced the problem of herniated disk. The doctor at OrthoTexas recommended him to undergo surgery and trust me, surgery proved to be a great option.

You can go to for Ayurveda treatment Jaipur or Kerla. Its cost may be around 15-20K but it take times 7-15days. This is permanently and very effective solution

My wife recently (5 days ago) gave birth to our second child, she is now suffering from extreme pain in her lower back and right leg (sciatic nerve). This has left her unable to walk without assistance and in pain even whne lying down. She had an MRI done yesterday and the results were a slipped disk. Her OB has referred her to a Orthopedic Surgeon, and that appointment will be in two days. My reasons for posting a comment are in interest of gaining some insight as to options for treatment, knowledge of past cases / studies, and personal experience. Thanks in advance
Chronic low back pain that lasts for more than a month may be due to an underlying organ dysfunction rather than merely due to a musculoskeletal injury. Please check out this article.
