I stopped watching after the first two exercises, both of which involved
lumbar spinal FLEXION. Why would you tell people to do that for a posterior
disc bulge, thats a huge disservice….

I was stricken by acne problems for some time. It turned so crappy that I
attempted to shut myself away. I made use of everything I could obtain,
however it failed. After which I found out about the Acne Executioner
internet site (Google it) and my pimple breakouts disappeared. It’s
different but I don’t mind seeing photographs of myself for the first time

What a coincidence! I was browsing YouTube for information on a bulging
disk and low and behold the first video was with a doctor with the same
name as me?? lol
Great information and very helpful in understanding the condition!

thank you very much for this video. I have been searching for a solution
for my mom’s disc bulges. she has three bulging discs and her right leg
pains very often. so can i try these exercises on her? please let me know
ASAP. She is taking medicines but these give her temporary relief from pain
and she needs to take those everyday. i just want your opinion whether she
should be doing these exercises or not. she is in her 50s. .

I had a MRI last year in November and it showed that I had a central bulge
on L3, a Diffused Bulge on L4 and one on L5, with Lumbar sciatica. also
been diagnosed with DDD.Paralyzing arthritis runs in my family and I am
scared one day I will wake up and not be able to move and I have 2 kids
that depend on me. It hurts to bend forward, backward and side to side. I
am taking 400mg 2x daily of neurontin, 200mg 2x daily of Celebrex, 7.5mg
Mobic 1x daily, and 5mg 3x daily of flexeril. They helped at first and now
it’s like taking candy. There are days I rather shoot myself then deal with
the pain. The numbness and tingling down my legs is awful. I have tried the
exercises you have showed and it feels like my back is breaking. I am
waiting on my insurance to approve a new MRI to see how bad it’s gotten,
cause in the last few months its been worse. I just don’t know how much
further I can go with this. Is there anything I can do to make it better?

DO NOT DO THESE EXERCISES, with the exception of the extension exercises. I
am a qualified Osteopath who has suffered from sciatica as a result of a
disc bulging putting pressure on the L5 nerve root so I know what works.
These exercises will further enlarge the bulge and may cause a full
prolapse significantly worsening the injury which may result in the need
for surgery to correct the problem. These are only suitable for facet joint
irritations NOT disc or sciatic pain. This Doctor does not know the
fundamentals of anatomy, if he did or had suffered from nerve root pain he
would not be encouraging you to do them.

Our Disc is a jelly/liquid like… it can be moved easily… while you are
bending to your left, the vetebrae body has squeeze the disc on the left
and pushes the disc/fluid to the right, and impinged/press more to your
nerve (imagine how if you press a baloon and how the fluid would flow to
opposite site) so, a better exercise for you is to bend towards your right.

I have 3 lumbar disks bulging to the right (and one anterior bulge in the
thoracic) but when I bend to the left I’m in pain. Conversely, when I bend
to the right it reduces my pain. I don’t know why this is.

you should definitely avoid lumbar flexion with disc pathologies, but in
saying that the flexion stretches he is showing is still safe to do because
your discs are not loaded when you’re lying on your back and when your
lying on your tummy on a ex ball. you particularly want to avoid flexion
when standing up because your discs are loaded/”compressed” due to gravity

Thank you, Dr. Dan!

Since then i took extreme precautions and did what ever doctor said. he
suggested some stretching exercises. after 3 months, since May i started
swimming as well. Now i dont have sciatica pain. Can you tell me when can i
come back to my normal life style like start playing cricket, volleyball,
badminton etc. however, this time if i can start i’ll definitely take care
of bending my back in the sports though. Can you tell me how long will it
take to the herniated disc to heal or will it heal?

Hi Dr. Perez, I am 35 yrs and i too have L5S1 disc herniated. I was having
this pain since 2 years and i thought it was just a pain caused because of
my physical activities like playing cricket, volleyball, badminton etc.
However, On December 29th 2012 it got worse and i couldnt even walk. I
consulted doctor and got MRI scan and it showed that i have herniated disc
at L5S1 region. Continued in next post

I thought forward flex was really bad for bulge?
