Do you have back or neck pain? It could be a prolapsed disc…

A prolapsed disc is when one of the discs slightly bulges. It can happen over time or suddenly as a result of a sudden movement or an accident. The pain is normally quite deep and achey. Sometimes activities such as coughing, sneezing or bending forwards can make the pain worse. If the bulge of the disc causes pressure on the nerve exiting the spine then there can be arm pain or tingling and loss of feeling in the arm also.

Physiotherapy techniques which can help include manual therapy, massage, specific exercises, advice and acupuncture.
