10 Incorrect Information About Lumbar Hernia! prof. Dr. Ziya Akar

Low back pain ranks first as the most common reason for referral to physicians in the adult population. In our society, 8 out of 10 people experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Contrary to popular belief, very few back pains are caused by a hernia.

Acıbadem Ataşehir Hospital Brain and Nerve Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. Ziya Akar pointed out that early treatment is very important in hernia, which can significantly reduce the quality of life, and said, “When surgery is needed, the rate of benefiting from surgical intervention performed with the right timing is higher. After the patients develop a loss of strength, the expected length of time negatively affects the success of the surgery.

Lifting heavy loads causes herniated disc. FALSE!
TRUTH: Contrary to popular belief, the problem of herniated disc is not associated with lifting a heavy load. Individuals who lead a sedentary life are more at risk than those who regularly work in a heavy-bodied job. prof. Dr. Ziya Akar said, “Patients mostly avoid moving too much. However, adopting a sedentary lifestyle is also one of the causes of herniated disc and is an important risk factor. The reason for this is that the intra-disc pressure reaches its highest level when we sit and the herniated disc increases the pressure on the nerve roots.

Long-term bed rest is required after surgery. FALSE!

Surgery is the last resort in lumbar hernia. FALSE!
TRUTH: When there are symptoms such as loss of strength in the legs and feet, numbness, decreased sensation and loss of urine, surgical treatment should be performed without wasting time. prof. Dr. Ziya Akar warns that otherwise there may be permanent nerve damage.

It is not necessary to see a doctor for simple low back pain. FALSE!

TRUTH: Misbeliefs that it is okay to go to a chiropractor, physiotherapist, osteopath or fracture-dislocation specialist instead of a doctor for simple low back pain can cause serious problems. prof.

For this reason, it is extremely important to first consult a neurosurgeon, physical therapy or orthopedic physician.
