Relieve Back Pain from Herniated or Slipped Discs
with Water Physical Therapy in Sarasota, Florida
Herniated discs are caused by aging, degeneration of the disc (degenerative disc disease – DDD) or injury to the spine. Disc disease may result from tiny tears or cracks in the outer capsule of the disc, called the annulus. The jelly-like material inside the disc (nucleus) may be forced out through the tears or cracks in the capsule. This causes the disc to bulge, break open or break into sections. White Sands Physical Therapy and Aquatics offers a protocol which combines computerized decompression tables, aquatic decompression and exercises, manual therapy and McKenzie extension exercises. This protocol can decrease bulging and herniated discs in most cases relieving back pain and radiating (pain that shoots down the leg) pain.
