Herniated discs are a common cause of back pain in adults and can be treated with non-surgical methods. There are many things that you can do to help to relieve your symptoms, but it is important to talk to your doctor before beginning any treatment or activity program.

In this article, we will discuss some of the natural methods that people use to reduce their back pain. 

Here Are the 3 Natural Methods for Relieving a Herniated Disc:

Fortunately, there are many natural methods that can help relieve your symptoms without the need for surgery.


This method has been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of health problems. The practitioner inserts extremely thin needles into specific points along your body’s meridians in order to free up the Chi channels from blockages and imbalance, which may cause pain or illness based on what condition you’re dealing with at that time. Using this method instead could be one way we can help to relieve some symptoms such as herniated disc pain. In a few short weeks, you may notice an improvement in your symptoms.


Acupressure, also called acupoints for short, is an ancient technique that uses pressure to restore lost energy through the body. This treatment can be done by fingers and hands but not needles. Some people who should avoid this treatment include pregnant women as well those suffering from high blood pressure or susceptible to migraines because they will likely be overstimulated by feeling pain when applied near these areas.


When you receive regular massages, it may offer chronic low back pain relief. A massage involves the stroking and movement of your tissues that are being applied in various ways to promote circulation as well as increase blood flow for better delivery of oxygenated nutrients including those removing waste products such as acid or alkaline byproducts which can accumulate over time if left untreated.

Massage isn’t proven at relieving herniated disc disease but it’s generally safe if done properly without side effects in most cases.

Massage therapy can be an effective way to relieve pain and tension. There are more than 100 types of massages, including Swedish massage which uses long strokes on superficial muscle groups in your body like shoulders or feet. However, it does not penetrate below the surface as deep tissue techniques do with direct pressure and slow movements for a deeper release from chronic muscular problems such as herniated disc injury. Wherever possible include a list or descriptions about any pre-existing medical conditions you may have other than just back discomfort.

Final Thoughts…

If you are suffering from herniated disc pain, the best thing to do is consult your healthcare provider. But if they can’t offer any relief or give you a good prognosis for the future, the above are some natural methods that may help relieve some of your symptoms and pressure on your spine.  As with anything else in life, there is no one size fits all solution so it would be wise to explore multiple avenues before giving up on getting better. 

The first step should always be consulting with a doctor who understands spinal disorders because their knowledge will often provide the most effective treatment plan-natural or not.
