Over the last 30 years, Dr. Faria has developed a method for healing herniated discs at a cellular level. The Faria Method, as it is called, integrates many different techniques that together successfully heal herniated discs.
The Pathophysiology of Lumbar Degeneration Study says this:”The disc itself is active tissue.” If discs themselves are active tissue, then they have everything they need to heal themselves, which is why Dr. Faria’s method works in healing discs at a cellular level.
The Faria Method begins by using IDD Therapy, which is a spinal decompression therapy that recreates a pumping mechanism that allows circulation to heal the disc. A class four laser, called a light cure laser, is then used to heal the disc at a cellular level to increase the ATP (energy), reducing inflammation. After this, manipulative therapies and acupuncture are sometimes used respectively to get motion back into the discs and relieve pain. Finally, anti-inflammatory nutraceuticals are used along with detox programs for weight.
When these techniques are integrated in this method, there is a high success rate for healing herniated discs and ultimately preventing the need for back surgery.
