Treating herniated disk with conventional medications and therapies

Posted on August 19, 2015 4:38 pm under Premises Liability

Herniated disk, or the compression of spinal nerves due to a rupture of the soft, gelatinous material in between the vertebrae, is accompanied by symptoms such as pain, weakness, and numbness. Although there are invasive procedures in managing herniated disk, Mayo Clinic states that conventional medications and therapies relieve herniated disk symptoms in 9 out of 10 people.

Conventional medications for slipped disk include over the counter pain relievers and narcotics to ease pain. Muscle relaxers are prescribed for individuals suffering from muscle spasm. Steroids might be administered orally or through injection to relieve inflammation and swelling in the affected area. On the other hand, therapies to relieve herniated disk symptoms include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and heat or ice compress.

Unsafe and poorly maintained premises may pose slip and fall risk among occupants and visitors alike. To know if you are eligible in filing a claim after being hurt in an unsafe property in Milwaukee, consult with our legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling (414) 271-0900 today.
