Disc Problems

Disc damage can be debilitating and opinions differ about the best treatment for this condition. Surgery and invasive techniques should only be used if conservative treatments have failed. A common reason for disc damage is an injury (such as bending and twisting to pick up something) or due to the muscles that protect the spine (core muscles) being "sleepy". Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) is an approach to the treatment & management of musculoskeletal conditions which can release tension to tight muscles and restore activity for "sleepy" muscles. DNS can restore spinal balance to the spine & muscles to improve strength and reduce injuries & damage to discs.

Because of the many stresses sustained by the spine and changes due to aging, the disc is prone to injury, which in turn can lead to lower back pain, leg pain, and other symptoms such as numbness and weakness.
