Are You Making These Mistakes When Treating Your Back Pain?

Have you “tried everything” yet still suffer with debilitating pain? Tried physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage, cortisone injections or medications and nothing works? You’re not alone. The number of treatments available for back pain can be overwhelming. How can you know which one is right for you? To be able to understand the confusing and conflicting maze of information both online and in the doctor’s office, start by reading this article.

1. You Don’t Know the Cause of Your Pain

Perhaps you’ve been told you have problems with yours discs, arthritis, spinal stenosis, sciatica or neuropathy. Unless you’re a doctor, those terms aren’t going to tell you what you need to know. It’s crucial to have your condition directly analyzed to determine exactly why you’re in pain. What really caused this to happen? Is the problem degenerative, or was it the result of an injury? Until you get to the root of the problem (the cause of the pain), your attempts at treating it will be hit and miss at best.

2. You’re Only Treating One Aspect of Your Pain

Trying treatments that only address one component of your pain will not solve the problem long-term. Certain treatments only address muscles, while some offer only temporarily pain relief. In many cases, the culprit of the pain is missed entirely. For example, your lower back pain may be caused by a spinal issue—yet if you don’t know that, you’ll continue to treat only the muscular component and the pain will be recurring. No doctor can provide the best treatment for you without knowing the true cause of the pain.

3. You Haven’t Had a Full Evaluation of Your Condition

Failure to have a comprehensive evaluation that not only isolates the cause of your pain, but assesses how it affects your quality of life, will leave you uninformed and unprepared to choose a treatment. I can’t believe how many people come to see me at my clinic, Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, and say that they’ve never even been thoroughly examined, let alone told what their problem is. As a result, they continue to suffer needlessly day after day, while some suffer for many years.

It’s for these reasons that my primary focus is to discover the cause of patients’ pain. While determining if a patient would be a candidate for our clinic’s specialized, non-surgical L.A.S.R. (Laser Assisted Spinal Rehydration) Protocols, I always perform a thorough examination. This includes viewing past x-rays, MRI and CTScan reports and physically examining the patient. Even if my treatment isn’t ultimately suitable for them, they leave my office knowing the cause of their pain and can use that to make an informed decision about their future health.

If you’re tired of suffering from pain, and want to book your consultation today, call Dr. Peter Ting’s office, the Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, at 604.689.HEAL

Back Pain Treatment Protocols Not Many Talk About

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.

Now that you know Laser Assisted Spinal Rehydration Protocols is an option for you, call 604.689.HEAL today to book your consultation. A referral from your family doctor is not necessary. During the consultation process I, Dr. Peter Ting, will meet you and review your medical history including x-rays and MRI reports. I will then examine you and determine if your particular problem is something we can treat. If so, you may be able to get started right away, and be pain-free in weeks!

How to Get Rid of Chronic Back Pain Potentially in Weeks

Many patients come into my clinic having been told their pain is something that will never go away, and they will have to live with it for the rest of their lives. However, with the treatments I offer at the Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, even those suffering from chronic back pain for years can find relief. Patients with chronic severe back or neck pain caused by spinal stenosis, sciatica, herniated discs and bulging discs can potentially be helped without surgery, cortisone injections or medication.

Computerized Disc Rehydration and High Dose Laser therapy encourage healing, so my patients can move on with their lives and stop being slaves to their pain. In addition to the powerful impact of these procedures, I recommend a customized biochemical nutrition plan to each of my patients, as well as advising them on an exercise regimen that will strengthen their muscles and joints. All of this works to repair the spine and discs, creating a stronger and healthier back.

As a result, patients find that they can get back to activities that they had long since given up on trying to engage in. They often feel younger, stronger, and have dramatically increased mobility for walking, exercise, dancing, and more. The best part? All of this can be done within 4-6 weeks. Depending on my patients, the severity of their problem, and their availability, treatments can be done daily or several times a week. The treatments are non-invasive and do not disrupt their day. They are able to walk, drive, go out and resume their normal daily activities after every session. And they often notice that they get easier and more enjoyable for them after each appointment!

The Top Two Procedures Used by Dr. Peter Ting in His Practice

In my clinic, the Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, I use several treatments in combination with one another in order to offer a comprehensive healing experience for my patients. For this blog post, I thought I’d offer a more in-depth look at my two most indispensable, powerful procedures.

1. Computerized Disc Rehydration

This is a procedure used by specialists in the United States, and we are pleased to be offering it from our clinic in downtown Vancouver. 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.

2. Laser (High Dose) Assistance

The benefits of laser treatments for both medical and cosmetic procedures have become widely-known and trusted by experts and professionals. When used on bulging or herniated discs, the laser assists in softening, relaxing the discs as well as the nerves, ligaments and muscles surrounding them. This process is called photostimulation, and is a very effective healing method for soft tissue, allowing it to repair itself at a far faster rate than normally possible. When used in conjunction with Computer Disc Rehydration, the laser is able to penetrate even deeper without being encumbered by bony structures that obscure the discs.

Vancouver Residents Overcome Chronic Back Pain without Drugs or Surgery

Welcome to the blog of Dr. Peter Ting, Clinic Director of Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre. I enjoy helping others get out of pain and lead healthy lives.

For my first blog entry, I would like to share some patient testimonials of successful treatments with you. These patients were suffering from back pain from bulging or herniated discs, sciatica and spinal stenosis. Once they came to see me at the Vancouver Spine & Disc Centre, they had taken the first step in their journey towards a pain-free life.

J. Christensen of Pitt Meadows was in “unbearable pain,” but saw “major improvements in all areas” after just four treatments. Although it is crucial to complete the entire course of treatment, many patients are grateful to find themselves already feeling better early on.

In many cases, the results are dramatic and give the patient new levels of vitality. Before visiting us, Del Faulkner of Surrey said he “could not walk up and down stairs.” Upon completion of our treatment program, he is happy to report that he can “run up and down stairs!”

Delta’s Ruth Schmedding was given a poor outlook on her future pain management: “Before coming in, my pain was unbearable and there was nothing anybody else could do. I had surgery over three years ago and the pain subsided, but then worsened. All that was suggested was medication for pain control.” Computerized Disc Rehydration in my clinic left her relieved and happy: “Thanks. My pain has decreased significantly and I am able to live more.”



Beverley Gracie
Thanks to Dr. Peter Ting and his staff [for] giving me back the ability to function better at work and home,” says Beverley Gracie of Port Moody, who came to see me after she was “experiencing excruciating pain in my head, neck and shoulders.” Often, underlying back problems cause pain in other areas of the body. If so, physio therapy, massage therapy, injections and exercise may not be enough to treat the issue. Computerized Disc Rehydration, in combination with our High Dose laser, targets the problem at its source.

I’m proud to say that those are just a few snippets of extensive positive testimonials from people I’ve been able to help over the years. Click here to view their full testimonials, plus many more: http://www.vancouverspineanddisccentre.ca/vancouver-spine-and-disc-centre-patient-testimonials.html

Vaccine Industry Worried About Accountability


By Dr. Mercola Many people are unaware that in 1986 Congress gave the U.S. vaccine industry a shield from product liability that is unlike any other in existence. In most cases, if a pharmaceutical product injures or kills a person, the manufacturer of that product can be held financially accountable in a civil court of law. With vaccines, however, this is not the case. In the U.S., there is a federally operated vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) that Congress created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. The VICP was created 30 years ago as an administrative alternative to a lawsuit when federally licensed vaccines recommended for children cause injury or death. Federal compensation was supposed to be awarded when there was no other biologically plausible explanation for the vaccine-related injury or death, and plaintiffs denied federal compensation or offered too little were supposed to be able to access civil courts. However, in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court effec

The Brazilian Beef Scandal and the Future of US Grass Fed Beef


By Dr. Mercola Worldwide, we’re seeing strong growth in organics and grass fed farming. As of 2016, the organic food sector accounted for 5.3 percent of total food sales in the U.S.1 We now also have a brand-new grass fed certification by the American Grassfed Association (AGA), which is the highest certification you can get for dairy, beef and poultry, including chickens, sheep and goats. In short, we’re seeing a radically increased demand for healthier foods. A lot more people now know about the drawbacks of factory farmed beef and dairy, and are aware that when herbivores are grazed naturally, without hormones, antibiotics and other drugs, you end up with a healthier product. Unfortunately, the current food system still leaves a lot to be desired. Built around efficiency and profit, inevitable quality and safety deficiencies are par the course. International trade agreements also protect profits over safety and consumer ideals. While traceability is key for food safety, country of
