Living with a herniated disk

Posted on August 20, 2015 3:24 pm under Premises Liability

Living with a herniated disk is more than just a physical ordeal. It may affect how you earn your living and impact your finances. On the other hand, limited functionality and decreased independence may also profoundly affect your emotional health.

To prevent the physical and emotional repercussions of a herniated disk, consider these tips:

  • See your doctor. Ask them for the best therapies and medications to relieve the symptoms of herniated disk
  • Avoid stress. Symptoms of herniated disk can sometimes be triggered by stress, so managing it might be a good way in keeping the pain at bay
  • Avoid activities that may worsen your pain. However, too much bed rest may cause your muscles and joints to be stiff and may thus trigger pain
  • Know what triggers your pain. It can be a particular work activity, or a specific way of sitting or lying down

If your herniated disk is a result of a slip and fall incident in an unsafe premise in Madison, you might be eligible to recover damages from the responsible premise owner.
