HOW TO OVERCOME CHRONIC BACK PAIN?Kako pobediti hronični bol u ledjima?

Disc herniation can rightfully be called a modern ailment. Due to the nature of jobs increasingly requiring prolonged periods of sitting in the same position, the number of people experiencing this unpleasant condition is constantly rising.

Symptoms of disc herniation:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Back pain when bending
  • Tingling in the arms
  • Stiffness in the neck
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Middle back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Upper back pain between the shoulder blades
  • Muscle weakness
  • Tingling in the legs and back pain

Chronic pain in the spinal column or neck significantly hinders daily activities and negatively impacts an individual's quality of life.

In the following text, you will learn about:

  • Lumbar disc herniation
  • Cervical disc herniation (disc herniation of the neck)
  • How to recognize the symptoms of disc herniation
  • What are its main causes

Back pain is experienced by almost every person after the age of thirty.

It is an integral part of the daily lives of most people at some point in their lives. Various factors contribute to its occurrence.

Factors such as genetics and age often play a role in its onset. Back pain from standing is common in most individuals.

Additionally, back pain during pregnancy is a very common occurrence. However, not every pain you experience is a symptom of disc herniation.

It is important to learn the difference between acute and chronic pain. Acute pain can last from a few days to several weeks.

Patients describe it as constant and intense back pain. However, if the pain persists for more than three months, it transitions into chronic pain. Nighttime back pain is characteristic of this stage.

In the case of disc herniation, the main symptoms manifest as chronic pain in the lower spine or neck.

Medications for back pain in this stage often don’t provide complete relief. If the pain radiates to the upper or lower extremities, seeking professional help is advisable. Such pain can be a clear indicator of disc herniation.

It is important to note that disc herniation is not a condition exclusively associated with jobs that involve prolonged sitting at a computer.

Physically demanding jobs are one of the main risk factors contributing to accelerated disc wear and degeneration.

Sometimes, everyday actions that may not seem like significant strain can impose a considerable burden.

Therefore, prevention is crucial. The best forms of prevention include:

  • Strengthening muscles through exercise
  • Swimming
  • Maintaining optimal body weight
  • Maintaining proper back posture
  • Lifting heavier objects with proper technique

It is important to emphasize that exercises should be applied with special caution due to the risk of injury and worsening of the condition.

Incorrect exercising and intense workouts in the gym can worsen your condition, so it is advisable to seek professional assistance.

Fizionova Physiotherapy Center offers a corrective exercise program for employees, which is an excellent form of prevention.

However, if the first symptoms of the condition have already appeared, it is necessary to start with a therapeutic approach and treatment.

Fizionova provides a solution with the help of FSWT-focus therapy.

The development of disc herniation symptoms occurs gradually. However, many patients choose to seek help only when they reach the last stage of pain.

At this stage, symptoms are often described as unbearable pains that persist day and night. Pain relievers are not helpful in alleviating pain at this stage, so it is better not to delay consultations with a healthcare professional.

In our center, the issue is treated with programs tailored to the specific type of disc herniation diagnosed in the patient.

Types of disc herniation include:

  • Lumbar syndrome, manifested as lower back pain
  • Cervical syndrome, manifested as neck pain

Depending on the type of disc herniation, a specific protocol is applied for therapeutic treatment.

Cervical syndrome, or cervical disc herniation, is characterized by pain in the neck area. The pain may radiate to the head, but it often happens that such a symptom is absent. Additionally, it can occur that the pain spreads to the shoulder or arm.

In the advanced stage of this condition, even damage to the spinal cord can be observed. For the treatment of cervical syndrome, we apply our Protocol 2, which consists of a series of therapeutic methods.

In the treatment of cervical syndrome, the following methods are applied:

  • Spinal decompression Tritton DTS Chattanooga
  • Kinesiotherapy (optionally with RSQ1)
  • Cold laser
  • Hyperbaric therapy
  • IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation)
  • MFR (Myofascial Release)
  • Radial waves
  • Focused Shock Wave Therapy (FSWT, if prescribed by the doctor)

As mentioned earlier, lumbar syndrome manifests as intense pain in the lower back.

Lumbar disc herniation, as previously mentioned, presents as pain in the lower part of the spine with a tendency for the pain to radiate down the leg.

When the pain extends to the lower extremities, it can localize in the foot and cause general weakness in the legs.

This type of disc herniation is treated with our Protocol 4, which includes several practical therapeutic processes:

  • Spinal decompression Triton DTS Chattanooga
  • Kinesiotherapy (optionally with RSQ1)
  • Cold laser
  • Combined therapy (US + TENS)
  • Hyperbaric therapy
  • IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation)
  • MFR (Myofascial Release)
  • Radial waves
  • Focused Shock Wave Therapy (FSWT, if prescribed by the doctor)
