    its sad to hear about your pain....If you have a disc bulge, there is still hope for recovery without surgery...by physiotherapy....there are number of procedures(traction,ultrasound,manual therapy,exercise threapy, thermotherapy, etc..) are presnt in physiotherapy...to treat conditions like slipped disk...

    Preventing a slipped disc

    Taking a few sensible precautions, such as leading a healthy lifestyle, can help prevent back pain and lower your risk of getting a slipped disc. For example, you should:

    take regular exercise

    use a safe technique when lifting heavy objects

    always maintain a good posture when sitting and standing

    quit smoking if you smoke......i think my ans may helps u...

      hey kaleem,

      your suggestions are really gud.

      but the thing is i m already doing this all from long time. regular exercises, yoga, physiotherapy and what not.

      but each time the relief is temporary.

      i really need a permanent solution to all this annoyance.

    Hi there I know how you feel I have an annular tar at L4 an L5 with disc protrusion after I fell of a chair at work going in for a spinal nerve block tomorrow then my surgeon will know which op to perform very scared right now as it's a risky procedure from what I have heard...you should be able to treat the bulge with mild stretches I did come across something on YouTube search for treatment for bulging discs there is an inflatable device that could help...all the best

      You're welcome...did the nerve block today was a very horrible moment the pain down the left leg when the surgeon inserted a needle was terrible like electrocution....if you are trying all sorts of alternatives and it's not helping see if you can get another MRI done to check if there's a difference in what you did or if it made things worse plus you have the Global health hospital there which I thought is awesome some of my Fellow South Africans have studied there and practice here in SA...get a 2nd opinion .
