Conservative Management of a Foraminal Lumbar Disc Herniation
A 39-year-old college professor presented to physical therapy via direct access, with a 2-month history of progressive lower back and right buttock pain. Following examination, the patient self-referred to a physiatrist, who ordered magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a moderate, broad-based right foraminal disc herniation at L5-S1 encroaching on the right L5 nerve root exit.
