I hurt my back a few months ago. I was diagnosed with a bulging lumbar disc. I’ve always been a very active – running, rollerblading, swimming. It’s getting me down, not being able to move like I used to. What can you recommend?
Having a painful back condition is discouraging when it prevents you from engaging in the activities that make you feel energized and alive. The good news is a bulging disc can be treated successfully with the High Performance Healing SystemTM offered at our Toronto back pain clinic.
The High Performance Healing SystemTM is an integrated, safe approach that has at its core non-surgical spinal decompression, Class IV K-laser and nutritional supplementation. Bulging disc is one of the more common painful low back and neck conditions that we treat.
Until you successfully heal and get rid of your pain, you definitely don’t want to push your body to the point of further injuring or stressing your spine. It’s always best to discuss any activity with your doctor, and to trust your own body to know what activity you could engage in. (Only you know how you feel!) One point to note is that the vast majority of patients who undergo care at our Toronto back pain clinic are able to continue working, while receiving treatment.
In some cases if your doctor permits it, low back core strengthening exercises may be an option for maintaining muscle tone. Also core strengthening exercises have the capability of improving spinal and even disc integrity.
Your goal should be to build strength in your back and abdomen, the main muscle groups that support the spine.
You did not indicate which mode of care you are currently receiving for your bulging lumbar disc. There is a successful and credible non-surgical, non-invasive, drug-free option for successful true healing at Back Clinics of Canada.

Yours in Health,
Dr. Ron Nusbaum
