The latest low level laser therapy ——Hand held Laser
The nucleus pulposus of the inter-vertebral disc is mostly due to long-term chronic annulus fibrosus and nucleus pulposus degeneration or sharp mechanical compression, which causes low back pain, hind leg pain, and occurs in the lumbar 4-5 inter-vertebral space.
What causes lumbar disc herniation?
1, Trauma: Acute injuries, such as lumbar sprain, it can easily cause disc herniation without the protection of the lower back muscles.
2,Overloading: The high-risk group of lumbar disc herniation is manual labor, and the early degeneration of the intervertebral disc is caused by excessive load. The study found that when the spinal weight is 100Kg, the normal intervertebral disc space is narrowed by 1.0mm and bulged 0.5mm to the lateral side. When the intervertebral disc is degenerated, the same weight is lost, the intervertebral space is narrowed by 1.5-2mm, and the lateral bulge is 1mm.
3,Frequent vibration: The most common group of people are drivers who have been sitting and rocking for a long time. The pressure on the lumbar disc increases, and the long-term vibration causes the pressure on the disc to increase, accelerating the degeneration or protrusion of the disc.
4,Bad posture: When working, it is necessary to constantly change position, including sitting, standing, lying and unavoidable various non-physiological postures, which can easily cause trauma or cumulative damage to the intervertebral disc, such as lifting heavy objects, often induced by bad posture.
5,Spinal deformity: Congenital and secondary spinal deformity in patients, because the disc is not wide, and often exist torsion, so that the annulus fibrosus pressure is not the same, easy to accelerate the degeneration of the disc. Patients with spinal deformity is a high incidence of lumbar disc herniation
What is the best way to treat a herniated disc in the lower back?
Not like painkiller, laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free, light-based therapy that uses red and infrared light to target inflamed, injured and diseased tissues. low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been verified the safest and economic way to treat the patients with acute and chronic low back pain caused by lumbar disk herniation (LDH).
Low level laser therapy was an effective method of reducing pain and functional disability in the therapy of low back pain
