In most cases, the symptoms ease off gradually over several weeks. The usual advice is to do normal activities as much as possible. Painkillers may help. Physical treatments such as spinal manipulation may also help. Surgery may be an option if the symptoms persist, this case affects both women and men, but the ratio of affection for men  is more twice than women.

It usually results from making a sudden movement even it is a simple like coughing, sneezing, and rotating the upper part of the body in a critical situation, this causes the occurrence of slipped disc.
