Causes That May Benefit From the DRS Protocol
There are many causes that lead people to seek help with the DRS Protocol. It may have taken repeated visits to your physician for a proper diagnosis. Do any of the terms below sound familiar to you? If so, we may be able to offer you help with the breakthrough progressive treatment, the DRS Protocol™.
- Herniated Discs - when the cushion that sits between the spinal vertebra is pushed outside its normal position
- Degenerative Disc - the gradual degeneration of the discs that reside between the vertebrae in the spine. The discs in the spine act as shock absorbers for the entire body weight. These discs can break down over time and create significant symptoms.
- Sciatic Nerve - one of the most common forms of pain caused by compression of the spinal nerves in the lower back. Pain in the leg is usually much worse than the back pain.
- Pinched Nerve- the term for pain or impaired function of a nerve that is under pressure. It happens to nerves that control muscle movements or relay sensations to the brain
- Neuropathy - nerve fibers that may be damaged, dysfunctional or injured, which then send incorrect signals to other pain centers
- Spinal Stenosis – a narrowing of the spinal column that causes pressure on the spinal cord, or narrowing of the openings (called neural foramina) where the spinal nerves leave the spinal column.
- Bulging Disc - occurs when one of the discs between two vertebrae develops a weak spot and pops out beyond its normal perimeter. When the bulging disc impinges on the nerves of the spinal column, the damaged disc can cause pain to travel to the hips, buttocks, legs, and feet. In the upper back, the pain would radiate from the neck down the arm and to the fingers
- Slipped Disc – This term does not mean the disc has shifted or fallen out of place in any way; rather, it refers to a disc that has split or ruptured. Slipped discs are more properly called herniated, or ruptured, or torn discs. Slipped discs can occur as intervertebral discs and surrounding bone structures deteriorate, or they can be a result of an injury from improper lifting or poor body mechanics
