Disc degeneration is a natural part of aging and is one of the most common causes of low back pain. Not all people will develop symptoms. The lumbar disc acts as a shock absorber between the vertebrae in the spinal column. Pain associated with disc degeneration is often caused by inflammation or instability. Unlike other tissues in the body, the spinal discs do not have a direct blood supply. Once a spinal disc is injured, it cannot repair itself.
Typical Laser Treatment:
Laser therapy promotes the formation of small blood vessels, softens the disc, and helps restore the spinal fluid that keeps it inflated (imbibitions). The discs become rehydrated and retract from impinging upon the spine, as well as slow or reverse the narrowing of the disc space. Treatments have been shown to improve disc elasticity, restore imbibitions, and reverse the degenerative disc disease.
