Yoga For Lumbar Disc Bulge

Updated on January 22, 2012

I am a 27-year-old individual working in a multinational company in Noida. As I have to sit all day long, I exercise in the gym every morning to keep myself flexible and fit. I am very health conscious and keep my weight in the normal range and stick to health food and drinks. I recently got an MRI screening of the lumbosacral spine done as advised by my orthopedist, although I was not having any back pain. The report came with the below-mentioned findings:

  1. Minimal bulge of L5-S1 intervetebral disc seen. No significant indentation is seen on the thecal sac and on exiting recess.
  2. Height and hydration status of the lumbar spine intervetebral disc is maintained. All lumbar vertebrae appear normal in height, morphology, and signal intensity.
  3. Straightening of the lumbar spine is seen.
  4. Facet degeneration is seen at L4-L5 and L5-S1 level with ligamentum flavum appearing normal.
  5. No evidence of any infective or metastatic lesion is seen.
  6. Spinal canal approximately A-P and lat dimensions is as follows:

  1. Conus medullaris ends at the L1 level and is normal in morphology and signal intensities. Nerves of cauda equina bear almost normal signals.
  2. No paravertebral soft-tissue abnormalities are noted.

I have no pain as such, but I want to prevent this disease as it is in the early stages which can further transform into severe disc prolapse if not treated on time. I looked on Internet and I am doing some yoga asanas for lumbar disc bulge like:

  1. Paschimottanasana
  2. Sarvangasana
  3. Setubandha sarvangasana
  4. Marichyasana III
  5. Balasana
  6. Supta padangusthasana
  7. Bhujangasana
  8. Bharadvajasana

Please go through my yoga exercise routine and advise me if what I am doing the asanas in the right order? Do I need to add anymore or remove some asanas from the list.

Now here is the yoga treatment for disc bulge. Do the below-mentioned yoga asanas for first 1 week:

Standing Asanas -

Tadasana 10 breathings.

Ardha kati chakrasana 10 breathings ( both sides)

Ardha chakrasana 10 breathings

Lying down (supine position) -

Ardha bavalamukthasana

setu bandhasana

Lying down (prone position) -

Bhujangasana 10 breathings

Consume 2 peppers plus two spoonful of honey plus 1 liter water every morning at 7.30 am.

Drink fresh sweet lime juice on a daily basis 3 times a day. Follow this advice and you will be able to cure lumbar disc bulge or prolapse in a matter of weeks. Following correct sitting posture in office is also highly recommended.
