Disc Herniation Physiotherapy - Curezone Physiotherapy

Disc Herniation Physiotherapy

At Curezone Physiotherapy Clinic in Mississauga and Oakville, we understand the challenges that come with disc herniation and the impact it can have on your daily life. To address that, we’re committed to providing comprehensive treatment strategies that are tailored to your needs, and are aimed at relieving pain and improving function.

Disc herniation is a common condition, affecting about 5 to 20 cases per 1000 adults annually. It’s most prevalent in individuals aged 30 to 50, with a higher incidence in males. In about 95% of cases, the discs in the lower back, particularly L4-L5 and L5-S1, are affected. Therefore, this condition can lead to significant lower back pain, as well as leg pain, numbness, tingling sensations, and weakness.

During your assessment at Curezone Physiotherapy Clinic, special tests will be conducted to determine which level of the spine is affected by disc herniation. These tests help us pinpoint the source of the symptoms, guiding our treatment approach for optimal outcomes.

Our treatment strategies for disc herniation encompass a variety of evidence-based techniques and modalities, including:

Manual Therapy:

We utilize hands-on techniques such as joint mobilization and soft tissue manipulation to alleviate pain and improve joint mobility.

Exercise Therapy:

Tailored exercise programs focusing on stretching and muscle strengthening are designed to support your spine and improve function. However, it’s crucial to ensure that core stability is fully restored before engaging in strength and power training.

Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Practices such as acupressure, acupuncture, and cupping have shown effectiveness in reducing pain and disability associated with chronic low back pain including disc herniation.

Spinal Manipulative Therapy and Mobilization:

These techniques provide short-term pain relief for acute low back pain and can be effective for managing chronic pain and reforming our posture.


Traction therapy has shown positive effects on pain and disability in patients with intervertebral disc herniation.

Aquatic Vertical Traction:

This method has demonstrated greater effects on pain relief and spinal height in patients with low back pain and nerve root compression.

Hot Therapies:

Heat therapy increases blood flow to the affected area, promoting healing and reducing muscle spasms.


Cold therapy is used during the acute phase of low back pain to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms.

Shockwave therapy and Ultrasound:

These modalities aid in pain relief and increase the extensibility of connective tissues.
