What you will cover in this lecture

In this spine surgery lecture, non-operative treatment of lumbar disc herniation is covered.

The author describes the range of modalities available for non-operative management including medication, spinal manipulations exercises, injection therapies and adjuvant therapies such as traction and ozone therapy. All the main indications and side effects of major groups of medication employed, such as NSAIDs, opioids, steroids etc., are described.

The physical modalities are explained in detail such as ultrasound therapy, low level laser therapy and short wave diathermy. The postulated mechanisms of actions are discussed and relevant clinical data about their efficacy is provided.

Spinal manipulations are discussed in detail with special reference to their contraindications and relative contraindications so as to guide the listener, especially when their use is going to be counterproductive. As exercises are a cornerstone in physical management of disc herniation, they are explained in great detail with informative diagrams in light of clinical data to support their employment.

The role of injection, traction and oxygen ozone therapy is explained with relevance to the documented relief they provide to the patients.

Overall, this lecture will aid the listener in understanding the amount of relief in symptoms possible by physical therapy and to make judgement for surgery clearer.
