Nonsurgical treatment is effective in treating the symptoms of herniated disks in more than 90% of patients. bed rest , muscle relaxants and oTC pain meds usually work. activities should be slow and controlled. Heat or cold pads can be used .Surgery may be required if a disk fragment lodges in the spinal canal and presses on a nerve, causing significant loss of function.
