A disc bulge can be extremely painful and you can understand why people think the right way to treat it is with immobilisation and rest. Wrong!

Studies show if you have some sort of rehabilitation within the first six weeks of sustaining your disc bulge injury, you will gain 50% more improvement than those without treatment.

Our Geelong myotherapists have a complete understanding of why patients experience so much pain from a disc bulge or disc irritation and work to help alleviate pain, as well as rehabilitate the body and prevent similar injuries in the future.

We show you that there’s a lot more you can do than just taking painkillers and resting, especially with your posture, strengthening and decreasing associated muscles spasm.

This condition can be extremely painful, as discs in the spine can compress onto nerves in the back. You may not feel like moving, but our Geelong myotherapists show you how to safely get moving again so your condition can improve as soon as possible.

If you’re suffering from a disc irritation or disc bulge or disc slippage – there are many different names and grades of disc injury – Geelong myotherapy practitioners can help you.
