When we experience back pain it may be easy to assume that you have a disk bulge (herniation), or suffered what is commonly called a “slipped disc” and therefore you need to rest and avoid movement.
But did you know that actually 30% of 20 year old’s and over 80% of 80 year old’s have “disc bulges” and are completely pain free!!
You may also be interested to know that the majority of disc bulges self resolve in six – 8 weeks!
It has also been widely reported that when back pain occurs, one of the most important things to do is stay physically active! This will help to strengthen core muscles returning you to health and keeping you pain free.
