Ending Disc Pain
In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peer-reviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD and his research team, in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have the ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutrition”. When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease circulation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? … Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness, and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of the car telling the driver that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in the car dash are NOT the problem. They can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed because the problem is still present.
In the spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to degenerate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs. The CTX Method treatment that is provided by Dr. Russ Schroder is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients fall asleep while undergoing the treatment.
Unless someone with these conditions has tried our CTX Method, they have not tried it all. Every day we have successes with patients who had "tried it all" in the past. Some of our patients even have told us they were almost ready to give up thinking they might just have to live with the pain, before finding us.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let patients know if we can accept their case for treatment.
My name is Dr. Russ Schroder, DC, FACFN, DACNB and I am a Fellow in the American College of Functional Neurology and a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, with over 18 years of experience in treating chronic pain issues. I am also the Lead Editor of the CARTILAGE & NERVE REGENERATION RESEARCH REVIEW 2015-2016 (which contains over 1,000 studies, from the National Institute's of Health, detailing cartilage repair and regeneration).
Over the past 10 years, we have developed a unique clinical treatment that combines medical therapies with advanced technologies to make the healing process fast and more effective. Many patients are seeing great results, even many of those who have "TRIED EVERYTHING" before. Our drug free and surgery free non-invasive natural treatment could be the answer to your back and neck discomfort.
