Prolapsed Disc Treatment
Not likely to help: Ayurvedic treatment is not likely to have any effect on disc prolapse and cord compression, as the symptoms are due to a part of the disc physically pressing on one's spinal cord or spinal nerves.

I do not know: It would be best to ask an ayurvedic practitioner what kind of success they have had. I am sure it would help in recovery if surgery were needed.

Depends on symptoms: Rectal prolapse is most common in older people, and treatment options take into account a person's medical fitness and suitability for operative treatment.

Rectal prolapse: If mild - it can be gently reduced and pushed back in - use a moist washcloth. Stool softeners may help prevent reoccurence.
