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:-



– 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

Great Testamonial

Hi Nick,

Hope you are doing well. I would like to leave some feedback related to my post treatment progress.
I came to you with quite severe lower back pain which I have had from time to time since my early teens (I am now 56).
You treated me twice and suggested a series of ‘adaptations’ to my life, such as lumber support at the office and car, a heel raise and two exercises. I have complied with these since my first visit. The results are remarkable! I have basically been pain free for a good two months. I play beach volleyball every Sunday morning and routinely I suffered lower back pain after that which would keep me out of the gym for at least two days. I now wake up on Monday morning without a hint of problems. I lift more, have more energy and generally feel so much better.
I would like to thank you for your insights and advice, it has made a huge positive difference to my daily routine.

Very happy for you to use this ‘testimonial’ wherever you might have a use for it.

1 week to go…
