What is the diet modification of a patient with herniated nucleus pulposus

Diet modification would be essentially losing weight to take any undue stress off your lower spine. The excess weight, particularly around the midsection or abdomen places more stress on your lower spine. Especially around the L4/L5 area of the lumbar spine. If you were to lose this weight, it is thought that by reducing this load, there will be less weight bearing stress on this part of the spine.
