Can physical therapy help herniated discs?

May11th 2020

Herniated discs are very common in many individuals with no low back pain. Research has shown that herniated discs can heal or decrease in size with appropriate treatment. Physical therapy reduces the pressure on a degenerative or herniated disc and improves the strength and stability of the muscles that support the spine through purposeful stretching and specialized exercises to ensure you are working safely and efficiently through your full range of motion.
