Slipped Disk Self-Care at Home
Minor cases can be handled at home in consultation with your doctor. Treatment at home will likely include application of hot or cold packs, limited activity (although strict bed rest is not generally advised), and basic pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin). As your condition improves, specific neck or back stretching or strengthening exercises may be suggested.
