Any tips for debilitating pain from a herniated disc in the lower back? Braces hurt it worse I’ve tried two. Physical therapy massage and chiro helps but then I go back to work and it starts all over again I’m taking celebrex and a muscle relaxer which don’t help at all anymore

      Sorry you're in so much pain, I have bulging disks in my neck and manged to get ortho-bionomy from a physio and it helps with the pain a lot and is very gentle, my husband has to do it on me at home(he was taught by my practitioner)but I highly recommend it, not all of it requires someone to help you

        @Maryprune what is it?

          @Mickey1210 it's subtle supported movements and positioning that encourages your body to relax and realign, when in pain for so long you tense up the areas and as a result blood flow and healing isn't optimal, its just like a reset, it's more effective than massage therapy has ever been for me and not painful whatsoever, it won't fix your disks but it should prevent it progressing and reduce pain in the area, I hope my explanation makes sense, it does make me dizzy after from the lactic acid release so you wanna make sure you're hydrated

        @LaurenRomero how long has it been since you’ve had yours? For me it’s been 7 months I was in a car accident
