Herniated Disc

With snow approaching later in the week, the risk of our injuring our discs will be increased due to the "bending-type" (flexion) positions we put our spines in when shoveling snow or pushing a snowblower. 80% of all acute back pain incidents are due to disc injuries; however, most people do not realize disc injuries can be easily treated with activity modification, exercise, and manual treatment. Watch this quick video regarding disc herniations for a better understanding of the condition.
