In Part 7 we discussed our treatment, Functional Disc Rehydration. We showed how it works and talked about why it is so successful compared to other traditional treatments. Our treatment is so effective because it takes the pressure off of the damaged and herniated disc, which allows oxygen and nutrients to re-enter the disc. This "rehydrates" the disc, and heals it. Our treatment can even cause the nucleus that has leaked out of the disc to return to the inside, thus eliminating the herniation completely!
