How to reduce disc ischemia

Hello everyone,

I am worried about ischemia around a disc causing permanent damage. I asked my physiotherapist to try some of the treatments they offer, such as ultrasound, lazer... but he told me just to use a heating pad at home.

Is there any way to improve the blood flow to a disc and reduce ischemia? It is not easy when I cannot do exercises that involve a lot of movement in that area, and cardio is not exactly easy to get!

I sit too much, that is sure, but other than a standing workstation, what could I do?

I look forward to hearing any ideas you may have,

    I know that traction/spinal decompression has worked for me. Studies shows it helps to get discs nutrition.
