Discs can Heal on their own

66.6% OF HERNIATED DISCS HEAL ON THEIR OWN - A RECENT META-ANALYSIS.

Most people think a disc bulge will stay with them for life.  Numerous studies have repeatedly shown rates of disc regression and healing between 40-100% of the time over the course of 3-40 months. (see hereherehereherehereherehere, and here).  Well, a recent meta-analysis (Zhong et al., 2017) has shown that 2/3 of disc bulges naturally heal on their own! Many of them within a few months too. 

The conclusion from the paper is that conservative treatment may become the first choice of treatment for lumbar disc herniation.
