What is the best treatment option for a 24 year old with a ruptured disk?

Depends. The treatment of ruptured or herniated disc consists of of course of conservative care (physical therapy, rest, nsaids, conservative alternative methods). For those that fail that treatment they may be a candidate for an epidural steroid injection. The last resort for patients is a surgical intervention in the form of a discectomy procedure. Visit your local spine surgeon for more information.
