Recurrent (repeated) disc prolapse

In ten per cent of all cases, despite successful treatment, a recurrence of the prolapse can occur. This can occur at the same spot or even at a different one. Based on the original condition, advancing wear and tear can sometimes cause further prolapses. Early weight-bearing after surgery can also be a reason for further prolapse.


The possible treatment methods include conservative therapy, disc cultivation, microsurgery, fixation, disc replacement and others.
