Fall as a teenager starts arthritis, bulging discs, and bone spurs.

This is an image of the cervical spine of a mid 50 y.o. man who started having  neck pain a couple of weeks ago, out of the blue.  His neck had caused him problems off and on for years but it had always just eased up on its own.  Not this time.  If you’ll look at the 5th and 6th joint from the top you can see large bone spurs.  These spurs develop after damage like what you would get if you were in a car wreck, had a  blow to the head, or if you had been in a  fall.  The disc’s are degenerating (breaking down faster than normal) and accumulating permanent damage.  We should have him out of pain in under 10 days with decompression, that’s how we take the pressure off of the disc, and with our Laser treatment.  The laser will repair and regenerate some of the cartilage damage.  Yes I said repair cartilage damage, you may have been told that “you can’t do anything about arthritis and cartilage damage”  WRONG, you can help speed up the healing and repair the damage, even if it has been over 40 years in the making. I’ll keep you posted about his progress.
