I recently started working with Magenta and I couldn't be happier with my progress so far. Magenta is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She took the time to thoroughly assess my condition and tailored her treatment plan to my specific needs (lower back pain). Her positive attitude and encouragement made the sessions enjoyable, even when the exercises were challenging. Thanks to Magenta, I have seen a significant improvement in my mobility and overall well-being. I highly recommend Magenta to anyone in need of physiotherapy services.

I have been very impressed with the therapy I’ve received by Magenta. She has helped with many of my pregnancy issues including lower back, neck and hip pain. She has a wealth of knowledge and is constantly up-skilling herself to ensure she has the most up to date practises. For me, she has used a combination of massage and giving me exercises to do at home. Not only that, but she has a wonderful disposition and is always happy to chat and see how I’m getting on. She has been there throughout my second and third trimester and I couldn’t be more grateful!
Thank god for Kurt and Kanvi. Without them I’d be in big trouble! Huge help with bad hip, back and neck pains. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Magenta/Danielle! Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and all-around lovely people. They gave me very helpful advice/support for strength and flexibility training, including deep tissue massages and acupuncture during the sessions. Without them, I would not have been able to recover from my IT band injury before my ultramarathon this summer.

I had a very positive experience working with Magenta on my rehabilitation following a tri-malleolar ankle fracture and surgery. It was a long and tricky recovery journey, but Magenta's professionalism, advice and positive attitude were extremely helpful in dealing with the whole thing. Thank you, Magenta and One Body LDN 🙂

I was on a week's business trip to London and had severe recurrence of slip disc induced sciatic pain in my left leg. In order to prep for the long return trip back to India the next day, I went for 1 session to One body LDN. Mridul, the physio, did a great job in understanding my problem, the pain areas and providing a deep tissue massage that helped me manage my pain during the return flight. Thanks Mridul and One body LDN!

Appendix: key terms and concepts for disc herniation

Disc herniation is a condition where the soft inner portion of a spinal disc pushes out through a crack in the tough outer layer. This can cause compression of spinal nerves, leading to pain and discomfort. Herniated discs are more common in the lower back (lumbar spine), which can result in pain in the lower back, hips, buttocks, and legs. Treatment for disc herniation may include rest, physical therapy, medication, or surgery depending on the severity of symptoms and individual circumstances.

Disc herniation occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tougher exterior casing. This can cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, leading to pain, weakness, or numbness. Diagnostic tests like MRI and CT scans are used to identify the location and severity of spinal cord compression caused by a herniated disc. Treatment options vary depending on the severity of symptoms but generally include physical therapy, pain management, and in severe cases, surgery to remove or repair the herniated disc.

Disc herniation is a condition that can occur anywhere along the spine, but most commonly occurs in the lower back. It is often referred to as a bulging, protruding, or ruptured disk and can cause severe leg pain or sciatica. Along with leg pain, individuals may also experience low back pain. Certain activities like standing, walking or sitting may worsen the pain. Straightening the affected leg can also make the pain worse. Herniated disks are a leading cause of lower back and leg pain, affecting up to 2% of people every year.

When a patient is suspected of having a herniated disc, an x-ray may be ordered to show the structure of the vertebrae and the outline of the joints. X-rays are useful for ruling out other potential causes of pain, such as tumors, infections, or fractures. However, a spine x-ray alone is not enough to diagnose a herniated disc. Additional tests such as a nerve conduction velocity test or a spine MRI or CT scan may be necessary to determine the location and severity of the herniation. In some cases, a myelogram involving an injection of dye into the spine using X-ray guidance may be used to reveal spinal stenosis and the location of the herniated disk.

Ibuprofen is often recommended as an anti-inflammatory medication to manage the pain associated with disc herniation. It is important to limit activities for 2 to 3 days and avoid movements that can cause further pain. Resting for one to three days can also help ease the pain, but it is important to avoid long periods of bed rest to prevent stiffness. In addition, physical therapy with specific exercises can help strengthen your lower back and abdominal muscles, while applying heat or ice to the affected area can also provide relief.

Disc herniation can cause various symptoms, including leg weakness and numbness, loss of normal bowel and bladder functions, difficulty standing or walking. In rare cases, it may lead to a more serious problem called cauda equina syndrome which requires immediate medical attention. If you experience symptoms like loss of bladder or bowel control, tingling, numbness or loss of strength in your limbs, you should seek medical help immediately. Pain from disc herniation can interfere with daily life and work, and if the symptoms persist for more than four to six weeks or get worse over time, it is important to consult a healthcare professional.

The intervertebral discs in the spine are cushioned by a tough outer layer called the annulus and a soft, jelly-like center known as the nucleus. A herniated disc occurs when the nucleus pulposus is displaced from its position. This can cause intense back pain that may radiate into the lower extremities. The condition is often caused by an inciting event and is different from mechanical back pain. Proper treatment and management of disc herniation can help alleviate symptoms and prevent further damage to the spine.

One diagnostic tool for disc herniation is Electromyogram (EMG) which involves placing small needles into various muscles to evaluate the function of nerves. It helps determine which nerve a herniated disk affects and whether there is ongoing nerve damage or another site of nerve compression. This test, however, is infrequently ordered. Other diagnostic tests include Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), Myelogram, Spine MRI, and Spine CT to determine the exact location and size of the herniated disc and if there is spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal.

Acetaminophen is an over-the-counter pain reliever that can be used to ease the pain caused by disc herniation. It is commonly used along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. However, it is important to note that long-term use of these medications may cause stomach ulcers as well as kidney and liver problems. In some cases, narcotics such as codeine or oxycodone-acetaminophen may be prescribed by a doctor if over-the-counter medications do not work. It is important to follow your healthcare provider’s advice when taking any medication for disc herniation.

Disc herniation can cause muscle weakness and loss of sensation. It is important to have a neurological examination to determine the extent of the injury. The doctor will check for muscle strength in various parts of your body and assess how you walk on both your heels and toes. Other tests such as an MRI may also be ordered to accurately diagnose a herniated disk. Strengthening exercises, such as those that target the core muscles, can help improve muscle strength and prevent further injury.

Naproxen, along with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, can help relieve pain caused by disc herniation. These medications can reduce inflammation and swelling, which can help alleviate the pressure on the nerves that causes pain. However, it is important to use these medications only as directed by a doctor and not for an extended period of time to avoid potential side effects such as heart problems or bleeding. Other treatments for disc herniation include physical therapy and avoiding movements that can worsen the pain.

Disc herniation can be diagnosed by reviewing the patient’s medical history and performing a physical examination. The doctor will ask about the patient’s symptoms, any prior injuries or conditions, and determine if any lifestyle habits are causing the pain. A neurological examination may also be performed to determine if there is any muscle weakness or loss of sensation. Depending on where the patient has symptoms, the doctor will examine their neck, shoulder, arms, and hands, or their lower back, hips, legs, and feet to identify the source of pain. It is important to consult a doctor as soon as possible when experiencing pain.

Herniated discs can cause intense pain and discomfort, which may require a combination of treatments to alleviate symptoms. Pain medication is often prescribed along with physical therapy and other non-surgical treatments to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Muscle relaxants may also be helpful in conjunction with physical therapy. In some cases, spinal injections may be recommended to provide relief from persistent pain. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

One of the common symptoms of disc herniation is the loss of reflexes in certain parts of the body. Your healthcare provider will test your muscle reflexes, sensation and muscle strength during a physical exam to diagnose if you have a herniated disk. Reflexes at the knee and ankle are commonly tested, and a loss of sensation may also be detected by checking whether you can feel a light touch on your leg and foot. In some cases, an MRI may also be ordered to confirm the diagnosis. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience any symptoms related to disc herniation.

Disc herniation can be a painful and debilitating condition. It is important to seek proper health care for diagnosis and treatment. Your healthcare provider may conduct various tests to assess your symptoms and determine the best course of action. It is essential to follow their advice for managing pain and avoiding further injury. At Mayo Clinic, patients receive high-quality care with attention to detail and efficiency, leading to satisfied patients with positive outcomes.

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic test used to determine the exact nerve root that is involved in a disc herniation. Other tests, such as myelogram, nerve conduction velocity test, spine MRI or spine CT, may also be used to determine the size and location of the herniated disc and where it is pressing on the spinal canal. EMG measures the electrical activity of muscles through small needles placed in them and can detect nerve damage and muscle weakness. These tests are important for diagnosing and treating disc herniation and related conditions.

Disc herniation can cause muscle spasms in the affected area which can be extremely painful. To relieve this pain, there are several treatments available such as aquatic vertical traction, hot therapies, and lying flat on your back with knees bent. Muscle relaxants can also be prescribed by a doctor to ease muscle spasms. Additionally, nerve pain medicines such as amitriptyline and gabapentin are options to ease nerve-damage pain associated with disc herniation. It is important to consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment of this condition.

Disc herniation is a common condition that can cause significant pain and discomfort. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available to alleviate symptoms and promote healing. One of the most conservative approaches is physical therapy, which focuses on strengthening the surrounding muscles and improving flexibility to reduce pressure on the affected disc. In some cases, medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or muscle relaxants may be prescribed to manage pain and inflammation. For more severe cases, epidural steroid injections may be recommended to provide targeted relief. In rare instances where conservative measures fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be considered. Surgical options include discectomy, laminectomy, or spinal fusion, depending on the specific circumstances of each patient. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for an individual’s unique situation.

A disc herniation occurs when one of the discs in the spine ruptures or slips out of place, putting pressure on nearby nerves. This can happen due to age-related wear and tear, improper lifting, repetitive motions, or sudden trauma. It can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area.
