2. Warm Bath
A warm bath isn’t going to address the cause of your discomfort, but it might have a number of other secondary benefits.
Firstly, a warm bath is immediately soothing. Heat is ideal for easing any kind of a pain because it helps to effectively ‘scramble’ the pain signal as it comes in.
At the same time though, heat can also help to encourage blood flow to the affected region, thereby helping you to heal more quickly. The best part of a warm bath though is that it will help you to relax your muscles. While a slipped disc is not a muscular problem, tension held in the muscles can certainly exacerbate the issue and cause you to constrict the nerve further. This is why relaxing in a warm bath can really help.
