Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is part of the natural process of growing older. Unfortunately, as we age, our intervertebral discs lose their flexibility, elasticity, and shock absorbing characteristics. The ligaments that surround the disc called the annulus fibrosis, become brittle and they are more easily torn. At the same time, the soft gel-like center of the disc, called the nucleus pulposus, starts to dry out and shrink. The combination of damage to the intervertebral discs, the development of bone spurs, and a gradual thickening of the ligaments that support the spine can all contribute to degenerative arthritis of the lumbar spine.
Your doctor will be able to discuss with you what your diagnosis means in terms of treatment options. For most people who do not have evidence of nerve root compression with muscle weakness, the first line of therapy includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy. A soft lumbar corset is often prescribed in order to allow the back to have a chance to rest. Surgery is offered after physical therapy, rest, and medications have failed to adequately relieve the symptoms of pain, numbness and weakness over a significant period of time.
WEI PATCH TREATMENT
For neck, back, lower back pain and sciatic pain due to bulging disc, a treatment with 6 WHITEE Patches in the disc area and one 100ml LC Balancer is recommended over a 2-week period. A mechanical adjustment or exercise during the treatment is necessary to bring the disc back to the right position. A 2nd mechanical adjustment or exercise at the end of the two-week treatment is recommended to ensure the right positioning of the disc. Patients may not feel immediate pain reduction until the disc is being adjusted. For severe cases, 2nd and 3rd treatment sessions are recommended in the 2nd and 3rd month to achieve total symptom elimination. For aging related bulging disc, if patients experience the pain again later on, they may need another treatment session.
