Hello Mr. Shofwan.
Thank you for the question.
HNP or nucleus pulposus herniation is a condition where the pads between the vertebrae come out of their original position and pinch the nerves behind them. The causes include:
spinal cord injury
lifting heavy weights in the wrong position
wrong habits of the cervical spine such as forced movement
pain in the legs or shoulders
weakness in the part of the body below the affected spine
tingling or stiffness
unable to hold back urinating or defecating
pain in the affected area
HNP management includes:
limit lifting of heavy weights
sleep using a solid base
not make any coercive movements of the neck or the habit of ringing the neck
warm compresses on the neck
taking pain medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen
surgery or surgery
do light activities such as walking
The operation is performed when:
symptoms did not improve after 6 weeks of treatment
weak and stiff muscles
difficulty standing or walking
unable to hold back urination
You should consult a neurosurgeon for your healing problem. Usually the doctor will also treat you together with a Medical Rehabilitation Doctor to relieve pain that arises from HNP.
Hopefully my explanation can answer your question.
