In brief: Different kinds

One type that is popular and has a good track record is mckenzie technique named for robin mckenzie, an australian physiotherapist.
The theory is to find a lumbar range of motion that is relatively comfortable and train the patient to engage in these exercises. Often for a prolapsed disc, it involves back extension exercises which seeks to "centralize" the pain into the back and out of the leg.
