If you have pain and are looking for herniated disc treatments in San Diego CA then you may want to read this!
16 years and 25,000 treatments later and we are still working on perfecting our protocols and getting patients out of pain as fast as possible and keeping them that way. This weekend I spent 16 hours at a seminar learning more about pain free techniques and have dedicated my life to helping others in pain by applying what I learn to myself first and perfecting it.
Disc herniations are a serious injury and need to be treated with the respect they deserve. Too often they are not and are simply masked with drugs, injections and surgeries that do not address the why behind the pain and the cause and simply treat the symptoms, with the symptoms only to return and ultimately worsen as the problem was never properly resolved in the first place.
You see the disc in between our bones in our spine (vertebrae) act as shock absorbers. These intervertebral discs re avascular tissues, simply means they do not have a direct blood supply. Therefore in order form the discs to receive proper nutrition, oxygen, water and nutrients as well as pump out waste products and inflammation - they need movement. Controlled movement that is, called "imbibition". Think if it like a sponge, all day long the disc compresses slightly and expands and this "pumping" motion is what it needs to stay healthy.
The problem arises when a disc herniation occurs, the disc can no longer get its water, oxygen and nutrients and therefore starts to dehydrate and become acidic which leads towards a significant amount of pain and dysfunction. In addition, the disc can no longer "pump" out the inflammation it has accumulated from the pain and lack of motion and this further increases the pain and dysfunction. This is now a patient who is stuck in the pain cycle and only drugs, injections and surgeries are offered for a mechanical problem. You see the problem here? The treatment being applied and offered in a typical medical setting is non causation resolving and focused on keeping that patient reliant on the drugs, injections and or surgeries as they are not solving the why behind the pain.
We focus on the why behind the pain and resolving these disc herniations with NSSD Therapy - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression as part of our protocols and although it is an important part, it is by far not the only part of our protocols that have such a high success rate in solving these cases non surgically and with no invasive procedures.
NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression works by applying a gentle distraction to the disc that are causing the pain and reducing the pressure until it becomes a "negative" pressure within the spine which allows for the disc to come off of the nerves as well as allow water, oxygen and nutrients back inside the disc to aid in the healing of the disc and at the same time "pump" the inflammation out of the disc, thus alleviating the painful sensations.
