Microdiscectomy :: Do’s and Dont’s post Op

Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to reduce pressure when a herniated lumbar disc compresses a nerve.  Your surgeon will remove a part of the herniated disc to relieve pressure on the spinal nerve.  Here are a few tips to be aware of after your surgery:-

 

Precautions

– Posture is important particularly maintaining the natural curve of the lumbar spine (a rolled up hand towel can be useful!)

– Avoid rotating, twisting and bending forward using your lower back

– Lift only light objects if necessary (2kgs or less)

– Limit prolonged sitting and standing postures

– Sleeping on your side is preferred, try using pillow under lower back or between knees, make sure to support the neck as well

Scoliosis Treatment

Did you know that Idiopathic scoliosis may develop at any time during childhood. It is most common in periods of growth spurts, between the ages of 6 and 24 months, 5 and 8 years and 11 and 14 years of life. We can treat Scoliosis with manual therapy but more importantly, teach patients how to self correct with self correction exercises.
