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.
