The bulging, splitting or rupturing of the disc of the spine causes the nearby tissues to fail or herniated. This herniated disc puts pressure on the spine making you feel pain and numbness. The treatment for slipped disc depends upon the causes, condition and severity of the problem. However, the usual treatment methods include taking adequate rest, light physical exercise as advised by the doctor, treatment with an ice pack initially after getting injured and later switching to heat packs, physical therapy and light massage.
You must consult a specialist before taking up any of these treatment methods as the symptoms and causes could vary, requiring individual attention.
