Shockwave therapy and laser therapy are two biohacks for damaged discs and bulges

Both Shockwave and laser help damaged disc and bulges by:
• Stem cell activation: Stem cells are effective in inhibiting disc degeneration and disc herniation. It’s a pretty complex interplay between the stem cells and the immune system cells but the result can be disc tissue regeneration.
• Stem cell activation: Shockwave will promote regeneration of the outer tissue of the disc. As you improve the regeneration, this helps contain and lessen the bulge (scar tissue formation).
• Stem cell activation: Laser increases the number of cells to the area which brings more oxygen to the damaged disc and accelerates healing by reversing the low-oxygen (degenerative or dying) environment in the spine. Everything heals better and faster with increased oxygen.
• Stem cell activation: Laser reduces and prevents herniation by suppressing the non-healing inflammation.
