There are many disc problems and one of the most popular problems is degenerative disc disease. It is a problem related to the lumbar spine.
According to the research on degenerative disc disease by the Journal of clinical and diagnostic, there are some exercises for l3 and l4 that can be helpful for degenerative disc treatment.
Degenerative disc treatment exercises help to strengthen your core muscles and also improve the flexibility of your spine.
There are 5 vertebrae in your lumbar spine, but degenerative disc disease mostly occurs in the l3 and l4 vertebrae.
This problem can also result in arthritis and bone spurs that cause excess pressure on the nearby nerve. This nerve is responsible for the sensation in the lower body and also provides strength to your legs.
In this condition, the l3 and l4 vertebrae cause pressure on the l3 spinal nerve root. This leads to problems in the area directly connected to this nerve like your knees, hip muscles, and the front of your thighs. This problem is also known as lumbar radiculopathy.
People who suffer from nerve root compression face complications like weaknesses in the knees and hips, tingling and pain in the lower back and or the areas that are connected to the affected nerve.
Before you start doing these exercises, it is important for you to understand that these exercises should improve your condition. If you feel that any of these exercises are increasing your symptoms, it is better to stop practising these exercises.
Also, you need to first consult your doctor and only then you should practise these exercises for l3 and l4 problems.
Degenerative disc treatment exercises are an excellent way to improve your condition however, you need to keep a check on your diet, postures and lifestyle as well.
If you really want an effective result, it is best to start with diet and exercises because this will increase your recovery time. It is best to ask your doctor or physiotherapist regarding the stretching exercises based on your symptoms and their severity.
Also, in the starting, you might face a lot of difficulties practise yoga asanas and exercises but after a while, you will surely feel the positive changes in your condition.
