What Does a Slipped Disc / Lumbar Disc Hernation look like a Spinal Level?
Can I See an Osteopath Following a Diagnosis a Diagnosis of Lumbar herniation?
Yes but on the condition you that you are not in severe pain as it maybe more appropriate to go for an appointment with your GP. Treatment will be quite conservative
Can I see an Osteopath for treatment following Disc Removal Surgery / Diskectomy?
This will be dependent on the advice of doctor or surgeon. Though we can provide post-surgical care where treatment will be generally quite conservative.
Will I need to be referred to the GP or Specialist Doctor?
If the lumbar disc hernation is severe then the osteopath you would need to be referred to GP for either further investigation (MRI scanning) or Orthopaedic surgery (i.e. a Diskectomy) or spinal injections maybe required to treat the disc hernation.
How Can We Help?
If the pain has a musculoskeletal origin or cause, then we can provide manual therapy treatment to help reduce the pain severity and improve joint mobility.
However, WE DO NOT offer Traction Therapy for Slipped Discs / Lumbar Herniation. The 2016 NICE guidelines on Low back pain and sciatica in over 16s: assessment and management makes it very clear not to offer traction therapies.
