  1. The safest and most versatile thing that comes to mind is swimming, because in water the spine is devoid of static axial load on the spinal column, therefore pressure is removed from the vertebrae and intervertebral discs. At the same time, almost all the muscles of the back, legs, arms, and abs are strengthened. Also, swimming helps to relax, relieves stress, trains the heart, lungs, improves blood supply to muscles and organs. This is both cardio and strength training at the same time.

    But it is better to discuss the issue of classes with a neurologist, an adequate sports coach, and perhaps even a traumatologist. After all, you can also swim in different ways, and different styles and intensity can have different effects: one will injure and aggravate your hernias, the other will help smooth out the discomfort and stabilize the position.

  2. Real exercises for a herniated back can only be recommended by a qualified medical specialist-preferably a vertebrologist, or a neurologist. You can also consult a neuro-surgeon (in addition to the first two, but not to replace them).

    I have a similar problem (only not in 4 places, thank God), consulted with many (especially to fully understand what my problem is and what I definitely need to do), eventually received advice and parting words from an excellent neurologist. I try to do as she said – the pain has passed, I sleep normally, I feel good. I will not repeat it here, because this does not mean that it will suit you at all.

    In short, TQ is not the best place for this kind of question. Go to the doctors!

  3. Good afternoon! First of all, you need to deal with hernias. Which of them interfere with life, and which do not. Then restore the intervertebral discs. And only then do a muscle corset. Ready to help, because

    I have extensive experience on this issue. At first I was treated by myself, and now for 15 years I have been managing my own medical center AKSIOMA, specializing in Non-surgical treatment of intervertebral hernias.

    The method is called “Internal local decompression”, developed in the late 90s in the United States. Treatment is performed on the DRX9000 (lumbar spine) and DRX9500(cervical spine) devices. During the procedure, only the treated segment is affected, and the entire spine remains at rest. A pump effect is created inside the segment. The intervertebral disc gains mass, restores volume. The percentage of herniated body weight to disc body weight changes significantly. The hernia ceases to push the nerve root, i.e. be aggressive, and due to the pseudo-vacuum effect, it is gradually partially “drawn” inside. The main thing is not that the hernia disappears (more often it significantly decreases in size), the main thing is that the pain goes away. The course of treatment consists of 20 procedures on the DRX9000 and 18 procedures on the DRX9500. The method not only makes it possible to successfully heal herniated discs, but also provides an opportunity to restore the disc after neurosurgical surgery, provided that it is preserved and there are no metal structures on the operated segment. In parallel, we use the methods of manual therapy, massage, and physiotherapy. At the final stage, we connect the exercises on the Exart papparat. The result: 95% without repeated visits to spinal doctors within 5 years (the observed period).

    With respect,

  4. You have 4 places in which the disk protrudes and you think what exercises to do? What are you trying to do to get into a wheelchair? You don't need to think about exercises, unless of course they are part of a comprehensive hernia treatment.
