[Lumbar disc herniation] How to treat? Apart from taking painkillers, is there any cure for the root cause?
Lumbar disc herniation belongs to the category of TCM arthralgia/back and leg pain. It is more common in manual labor such as porters, long-term bending work, sports contusions, and poor postures. The cause is nothing more than the following two types：
1.External force factors: usually caused by a fall, injury or heavy lifting caused by sudden severe pain, the intervertebral disc may be ruptured and herniated.
2.Degenerative strain: The annular ligament that protects the intervertebral disc gradually ages and softens, causing the intervertebral disc to bulge outward.
The most common symptom of the clinical manifestation of lumbar disc herniation is sciatica. Due to the rupture of the lumbar intervertebral disc fibrous annulus, the severe pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, radiating from the lower back through the buttocks to the lower limbs, the lower limbs are weak. Numbness and tingling.
Traditional Chinese medicine uses traditional cupping to act on the painful part of the lumbar spine. With the help of the negative pressure in the cup, the psoas muscles relax and the pressure caused by the herniated lumbar intervertebral disc is relieved. The patient can instantly feel pain, numbness, soreness and tingling. For patients suffering from low back and leg pain, it is undoubtedly a better treatment plan.
