On the other hand, if symptoms persist and worsen you need to make time because this can lead to nerve damage and possible surgery, and that will lead to a lot more lost time than it takes to treat it.
I suppose theoretically if you could tough it out long enough the body could eat away the damaged tissue and scar over the damaged area.
I know it seems like you don't have time but nearly every time one of these is left untreated it will degenerate over time and cause worse issues in the future.
The whole area can degenerate and the whole disc can disappear over time...very painful and lots of symptoms, usually.
Go have a chiropractor at least re-align the bones in that area!
