Back pain and disc injuries


Lower back pain is commonly associated with Intervertebral disc injuries. Excessive mechanical loading or acute trauma to the intervertebral disc (IVD) is thought to contribute greatly to the cause. Injuries to the IVD can occurs as a result of direct trauma to the lower back from things such as lifting incorrectly or gradual degenerative causes overtime the disc can herniate or bulge out otherwise more commonly referred to as a “slipped disc”.


Current evidence suggests that the best form of pain management associated with musculoskeletal conditions such as IVD injuries includes a combination of Osteopathy treatment, lifestyle changes and proactive exercise regimes.
