Exercises for a herniated disc

Radiating leg pain, also known as “sciatica”, from a herniated lumbar disc, can be quite painful. Besides the pain, this condition can be accompanied by tingling or numbness in the leg, and by weakness by the muscles in the leg or foot. Most people suffering from a herniated disc, will recover by natural healing, and a few will benefit from surgical removal of the disc material compressing the nerve root. Patients suffering from sciatic leg pain, caused by a herniated disc, often seek advice as to how they can relieve the pain.

Exercise and physical activity is the number one choice of treatment for people suffering from sciatic leg pain. Sometimes pain killers can be beneficial too. The exercises we prescribe are intended to reduce the pain, by relieving the mechanical compression on the painful nerve root.
