Major part of this include disc bulges and protrusions which will be manifested as irritating pains,numbness,loss of mobility and the symptoms goes on..
In this era everybody will be having some sort of medical knowledge..thanks to Google...
From our experience in treating these issues since last 15 years and critical analysis from our research wing, we would like to answer some common questions and ayurvedic solutions.

1. If surgery not opted,what happen to the nucleus pulposes of protruded disc lying within spinal cord? Does it disappear or remain in the canal.
Ans: Massive disc herniations usually reduce in volume and by 6 months size of the protruded material will be 1/3rd of original size.

2. Does disc herniations cause reccurent clinical symptoms?

Ans: If the patient shows improvement with therapies, normally 85-90% of disc herniations will have sustained improvement.

3. Is there a risk of nerve damage resulting from ayurvedic approach ?

4. Is it safe to adopt AYURVEDA management other than surgery for cases of disc related complaints ?
