🍩Fix that bulging disc without surgery? .
🍩Just to be clear, I’m referring to a herniated lumbar disc, bulging disc, ‘slipped disc’ and not a ruptured and sequestered blow out. In a case like that, you’re going to need some medical intervention. .
🍩Most of the population has a bulging disc and if you aren’t one of them, don’t worry, you will, and when it happens, this is what you do. .
🍩First thing you want to do is avoid flexion, and here’s why. When you load up flexion pulling your knees up or folding yourself in half, all you’re doing is unloading muscle spasm. The problem is that you’re also forcing the disc into the posterior of the vertebral unit. This means that the disc is pushing into the exact area where the nerves exit. .
🍩Now you’re left with pressure on the dorsal nerve root ganglion, the nerve itself, and you have a disc that’s lost centralization. No flexion. .
🍩Instead, decompress the disc, balance out the pelvis and then work extension to cause the disc to gradually centralize and draw in the nucleus pulposis (the jelly center).
Here’s a series to clean up that disc, do this daily 2-3 times per day.
1️⃣ 2 - 5 Minute Hang
2️⃣ Pelvis Reset
3️⃣ Pelvic Active Mobility
4️⃣ Prone Extension .
