Ruptured disc exercises
How do I safely exercise to eliminate pain? What about inversion therapy on a special table advertised to increase space between vertebrae?
It depends on the location of the ruptured disc and the types of exercises you enjoy. A physical therapist is the best person to answer these questions but the answer will be specific to your case.
