Background and aim: Lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy has been one of the most difficult conditions to manage in orthopedic manual therapy. While there are many clinical studies concerning the standardization of surgical treatment, there is to date no standardized literatures for the most effective non-operative care for lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy which suggest that extreme measures to ameliorate lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy are urgently warranted. In this study, a 35 year old man who was diagnosed with lumbar disc herniation and was planned for lumbar surgery due to failure of medical interventions was successfully treated using non-operative management.
