Disc Herniation - TRCC Total Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Centre

Please wait...

The intervertebral discs are located throughout the entire length of the spine in between each of the vertebrae (bones of the spine). A disc Herniation occurs when the jelly-like substance from within the disc protrudes out the back and side of the spinal column. It is theorized that the protruded herniated disc material caused the release of irritating substances or initiated an autoimmune inflammatory reaction. This disc, the corresponding inflamed nerve root, or compression of the nerve root by the disc may be the source of pain. This can cause any of the following symptoms; low back pain, tingling, pain and weakness down the affected limb (usually below the knee). The pain is often of sudden onset from a bending and/or twisting manoeuvre but is the result of cumulative repetitive trauma. There is often a past history of several bouts of low back pain that have resolved. The disc can become dysfunctional due to cumulative trauma (ie: repetitive combined movements of flexion of the back and rotation), the effects of aging, or degenerative disorders of the spine. Most people with back pain however, do not have pain from herniated discs. Current research using an MRI had shown that as many as one third to one half of healthy asymptomatic young men have signs of disc bulge or Herniation.

Here's an example of what just one session of Fascial Remodeling can do! This before & after are an hour apart.

RMT Asha started working with this client to prep her for breast reduction surgery. They did 2 prep sessions prior to the reduction, and this treatment was their first one since the surgery 3 weeks ago.

The client reported feeling more breast congestion on her left side post op, but as you can see her entire torso was congested (1). Her whole right side was pulled up (3) and rotated (2), and most of her weight was on her left leg (4). After the treatment, the torso girth reduced, her rotation relaxed (see the belly button position), and her weight was evenly distributed on both legs.

Breast work was modified according to the client's current activity level, surgeon's recommendation, and scar quality.
