Worn down lower back disc (degeneration) or lumbar disc bulge/herniation

  • No high impact exercise, only low impact exercise.
  • Do loads of core stability strength work.
  • Yoga is ok is some cases but not all. Ask your Chiropractor.
  • Freestyle swimming and Pilates is very good and helpful. Do lots
  • Body balances fitness classes are good.
  • Use weights only when back is supported. Be careful picking up weights. We don’t suggest body pump.
  • Avoid sugar as it increases inflammation.
  • Stop smoking as it reduces blood flow to the disc and the spine
  • Invest in a good bed. A medium to firm orthopedic bed is recommended. The more you spend on it the better.
  • Don’t sit on soft sofas- only chairs which support the back.
  • Supplements can be helpful- Glucosamine Sulphate. Gelatin. Turmeric, krill oil, MSM.
  • Don’t sit for long periods of time without moving (get up every 30 minutes). Sit in an ergonomic chair.
