Herniation: During a disc episode the hallmark component of treatment is the 100% STRICT crate rest 24/7 for 8 weeks to avoid damaging the spinal cord and to avoid surgery if possible.If surgery is an option for your family: Surgery can be very successful if performed early and by a board-certified surgeon. Surgery can also still be successful many times if surgery is performed within 12-24 hours after losing deep pain sensation (DPS) the last neuro function in the spinal cord.
