Rehabilitation after removal of disc herniation

IVRSpine strengtheningRehabilitation after removal of disc herniation

The rehabilitation period after removal of disc herniation is a period, during which patients try to return to everyday life after back surgeries. Restoration of the muscular system supporting human spine is the main objective for the rehabilitation period.

Rehabilitation after removal of disc herniation at the Institute of Vertebrology and Rehabilitation

The programs of rehabilitation after removal of disc herniation are developed by professionals at the Institute of Vertebrology and Rehabilitation for every patient individually. The programs are aimed at full restoration of integrity of musculoskeletal system and typically consist of three stages.

  1. The first 2 weeks after surgery. During this period, doctors aim all efforts at elimination of pain and subsidence of edema. Intensive medication-based treatment and preventive procedures are used to prevent possible post-operative complications. Doctors also prescribe orthopedic support corsets to prevent displacement of the vertebrae and promote rapid healing of stitches.

  2. From 2 weeks to 2 months. During this period, our doctors help with patients’ adaptation and recommend basic therapeutic exercises, gymnastics and physiotherapy after surgeries for removal of disc herniation.

  3. From 2 months to 1 year after surgery. During this period, our professionals work on full recovery of injured spine areas, prevention of pathological changes in patients’ bodies, and strengthening of the muscular system in the back

Then, preventive procedures are necessary throughout life. In particular, patients should undergo periodical diagnostics to monitor condition of the entire musculoskeletal system.

During the entire rehabilitation period after removal of disc herniation, doctors at the Institute of Vertebrology and Rehabilitation use:

  • Medications (pain, swelling and inflammation relief).

  • Physiotherapy (electrotherapy, laser therapy, ultrasonic therapy).

  • Therapeutic massage.

  • Remedial gymnastics.

All procedures help restore the structure of bone and cartilage tissues, improve blood circulation processes, as well as increase and develop the tone and elasticity of the back muscles.

Starting with the 3rd month after the surgery, you are welcome to undergo rehabilitation treatment at our Center for Spine Strengthening and Joint Rehabilitation with the help of innovative professional David medical stimulators. Based on results of extensive computer testing our physicians develop individual exercise routines with David training devices for each patient.

The Finnish-German David method makes controlled and safe loads on muscles possible for recovery after removal of disc herniation in the lumbar and other back segments.

Restrictions for rehabilitation period after removal of disc herniation

  1. No movement without a special support corset

  2. No sitting for the first two weeks

  3. No lifting of items weighing more than 2-3 kg for the first three months
  4. No leaning forward or sideways, twisting, sudden and amplitude movements

  5. Frequent changes of body positions

  6. No sessions of osteopathic treatment

  7. Weight control and no weight gains

DAVID F110 DMS-EVE

The DAVID F110 DMS-EVE is one of the most essential training devices for back pain relief often used for training of the iliocostal muscles of the chest and back, longissimus dorsi muscle.

DAVID F120 DMS-EVE

The DAVID F120 DMS-EVE training stimulator allows rotation in the thoracic and lumbar spine, providing individual load and amplitude for every patient. During training sessions the lower part of the body is rotating, shoulders and knees are stabilized with a special stabilizing mechanism, internal and external oblique muscles, transverse muscles of the back, deep rotator cuff muscles, semispinal muscles, and deep multifidus muscles are properly developing.

DAVID F130 DMS-EVE

The DAVID F130 DMS-EVE training stimulator is used for the muscles flexing the thoracic and lumbar spine. The stimulator is equipped with a special stabilizing mechanism for patients’ shoulders and knees. This allows for the focus on training of the abdominal wall muscles, which are of the primary importance for the health of the back and abdominal organs.

DAVID F150 DMS-EVE

The DAVID F150 DMS-EVE training stimulator is used for improvement of mobility of the thoracic and lumbar spine, enhancement of the square and psoas major muscles. An important operating concept of the training stimulator, as well as in the case of the rest of the stimulators in the product line, is the alignment of the spinal axis with the rotation axis of the stimulator. Similarly to the F120 stimulator, DAVID F150 DMS-EVE is good for the abdominal muscles, including the oblique muscles.
