A Comprehensive Approach to Disc Herniations and Sciatica

The majority of the US population will deal with some lower back pain over a lifetime due to improper posture, weak core muscles, or other mild to moderate strain issues. Many times, the pain can be related to a disc herniation of the lower back or neck with pressure on the nerves causing sciatica which is a pain that radiates to the leg and foot with occasional numbness and tingling.


Conventional treatments are focused on pain reduction and pain management initially and physical therapy to strengthen the spine when the patient can. If this did not work, surgery was considered as a last option. The most recent trend has been non surgical spinal disc decompression which boasted an 86% success rate and has saved thousands of people from invasive procedures over the past decade. While decompression therapy is a great choice to reduce disc pressure, the question remains: What to do now? The results of spinal decompression therapy helps with the pain and radiating symptoms but does not stabilize the spinal muscles of the core which is where the long term success lies.


Bring in harmonic spinal decompression, high intensity laser therapy, and AllCore training as the most comprehensive approach to disc and sciatic treatment. Harmonic spinal decompression uses a rhythmic pattern of targeted decompression to slowly reduce intradiscal pressure and "pump" spinal fluid back into the disc. Rather than a pull, hold, and release of most decompressive tables, harmonic decompression continuously increases and decreases disc pressure in a controlled pattern bypassing spinal muscle guarding which can prevent proper decompression of the herniated disc. This is all done in a painless and relaxed state by the patient.


Second, high intensity laser therapy is utilized for the affected area which helps stimulate pain relief in nerves, promote disc healing and rejuvenation, and reduce inflammation of the area. Class 4 laser therapy has the power and the laser properties to do this while not causing any injury to the tissue in the area.


However, by itself, these two therapies would be great for short term reduction of pain, reduction of disc herniation, and reduction of sciatica or other nerve impingement. But what about the long term success? What is going to keep these structures stabilized so they are less likely to reoccur? Why do some people always hurt their backs even after going through therapy?


The answer is proper core stabilization and balancing with AllCore 360. Core strength is relative to the individual as some are stronger than others. Core stability and balance are the key to "fixing" discs over the long term as small, intrinsic muscles of the spinal column must properly do their jobs to allow proper disc and bone motion as well as disallow any improper or excessive motion. AllCore 360 automatically and comprehensively trains 55+ muscles of your core while you are in a seated position within 10 minutes per session. The real results are seen with successive treatments over 6 weeks but the result is core balance and stability and a sense of "strength" without a single sit up, plank, or other core exercise.


The bottom line is, disc herniations and spinal injuries require a comprehensive approach with skill and precision. Come experience it for yourself.
