If you suffer from chronic back or neck pain, you’ve probably been recommended one or more of the following options for treatment: spinal surgery, physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage, cortisone injections, medication or traditional chiropractic. We all know about these options, and their pros and cons. After awhile, none of them sound very appealing, and trying the same strategies over and over without results can get discouraging.
Chances are your doctor may have neglected to inform you about a treatment protocol called Laser Assisted Spinal Rehydration Protocols. Today, I will tell you a little bit more about it, and why it deserves to be talked about much more widely. I think you’ll agree with me by the end of this article.
I offer Laser Assisted Spinal Rehydration Protocols at my clinic, the Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, and the results I’ve seen in patients have been remarkable. Laser Assisted Spinal Rehydration Protocols aim to heal the discs and allow the body to recover, instead of simply soothing pain temporarily. Because these protocols are not talked about often, you may not know how it works. Here is a short description of the idea behind it, taken from another blog of mine:
Computerized Disc Rehydration targets the problematic disc(s) in order to rehydrate, and regenerate it. It works by creating negative pressure within the disc. The reversal of pressure then creates what is called an intradiscal vacuum that encourages the disc to reset itself into place, relieving pressure from pinched nerves. Through this process, nutrients, oxygen and fluids are drawn back into the disc to promote healing.
But, in my clinic, Computerized Disc Rehydration is also assisted by High Dose laser therapy (which you can find out more about here: https://drpetertingblog.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/the-top-two-procedures-used-by-dr-peter-ting-in-his-practice/), customized nutrition protocols and a personalized exercise plan. This approach targets the source of the pain as well as strengthens the body so it can heal itself. I truly believe that this treatment protocol is the best way for people to conquer their chronic back pain.
