Slipped Disc pain shouldn't be a life sentence

Think you have a slipped disc? Don't Panic! We can help.

Your disc will definitely NOT have totally slipped out BUT you may have a disc tear, disc herniation or disc prolapse. This can cause back pain AND sciatica.

You might be asking "Do I need a scan?" "Should I stay at work?" "Will I need an operation" "How do I get to sleep comfortably?"

We can answer all your questions and set you on the path of recovery. Did you know that over 95% of all slipped disc problems resolve WITHOUT the need for surgery.

Time & Rehab are the 2 things that you need. Unfortunately there is NO quick fix for this type of problem. It's not 'crack your back and hey presto all is fine'.

The whole disc itself NEVER slips. The discs are stacked in between the vertebral bones in your back. They are made of a very touch outer part called the annulus fibrosus and a more gel like inner part called the nucleus pulposus.

Sometimes a tear can develop in the outer part and some of the gel like nucleus can herniate or prolapse out.  It moves into the space where the nerve leaves your spine and if the nerve is 'impinged' or compressed then you can get sciatica.

Sciatica means pain in the leg from the sciatic nerve. Lots of people think they have sciatica but don't.  If you do have it, the nerve being irritated or compressed is the reason why.

The disc material doesn't pop in and out like it might feel. So avoid anyone who tries to tell you that they can push your disc back into place!

We have seen thousands of people with this type of pain so you are in safe hands.

If after we have assessed you we think that you DO need a scan we will write to your GP or consultant and get that arranged.

If you have any pins and needles, numbness or weakness in your leg. This can be very normal and is no cause for alarm. However we do recommend that you read this just as a precaution.

We recommend that if you do have a slipped disc that you see us sooner rather than later. Understanding it better and beginning rehab sooner WILL HELP you start get better sooner.

People in pain often leave it a long time before asking for help,

they don't know what is wrong, and worry about the future.

live the life they want and keep doing the things they love.

      From a 1 week episode to 10 years worth of pain. It’s still one of the most common problems that we see in our physio clinic in Macclesfield Cheshire.

      When it comes to slipped disc pain & sciatica, it feels like everyone has an opinion on what’s best for you. It can be confusing to know who to listen to and who to trust. Most of the advice is often out of date.

      One thing that is certain about slipped disc pain & sciatica is that your pain and the contributing factors to it are individual to you. So what might have worked for a friend will not work for you.

      If one treatment worked for everyone then slipped disc pain & sciatica would not be the problem it is!

      satisfied customers!

      Excellent knowledge and everything was well explained. Comfortable atmosphere and very professional. Hogan & Mitchell physio helped me with a back pain problem I'd had for years. About a month after seeing them for only 1 session I don't have any pain. Their diagnostics and instructions have been well worth the money.

      Richard M.

      Very good practice, friendly but also professional. If you have any issues relating to sore backs and stiffness this is the practice to use. I have tried others in Macclesfield and have not had the same help that I have had from Simon and Ross.
