Are there non steroidal and non surgical treatments for a l5-s1 disc hernia?

Therapy

Motrin
You can try Ibuprofen over the counter and Physical therapy as a first line treatment of a herniated disk without surgery. If you fail therapy and your pain persists, you may need surgery. Try to do physical therapy first. Williams and McKenzie exercises help quite a bit.

Can an l5 s1 hernia heal on its own?

Herniated disc?

Scarring
IF you do not have nerve compression resulting in pain or bladder/bowel dysfunction, your body will eventually form scar tissue around the new place the disc rests and the symptoms will improve. This can take 2-3 months.

Hello,lm from Macedonia and l need a help because l really dont know how to get health l have 27 age,and l have discuss hernia L4,L5 L5-S1 pls,help?

Sciatica

Open-uri20130401-27429-1knx07
True sciatica is leg pain that shoots from back, down the leg PAST the knee. This mimics the path of the Sciatic nerve, thus it's name. Young patients more likely to have herniated disc. Older patients, pressure from arthritic spurs. All can be treated non-surgically if not getting worse. Physical therapy, Tylenol or Aleve, nerve blocks, the combination works 80% of the time.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

How can you solve l5-s1 disc bulged problem?

What is the problem?

Back_pain
It really depends on what your symptoms are. if you're experiencing back pain, it's important to look for other possible pain generators aside from the L5-S1 disc bulge. Regardless, core strengthening may help slow the progression.

Can bulging disc at l5-s1 cause pain in the genitals?

Unlikely

Pain
Nerve root most commonly compressed by a disc at L5-S1 is the S1 nerve root, less commonly the L5. Compression of either nerve root would cause pain down the leg, not typically the genitals.

Can disc bulge at l5-s1 cause atrophy of calf muscle?

Yes

Strength_training
In a young person like yourself, you might want to get a neurosurgery consult. Atrophy of muscle due to a disc bulge is an indication for surgery. Pain from a disc can be treated with medication and physical therapy in many cases; muscle atrophy or loss of function cannot.
