Dear Kalyan,

Please accept my sincere wishes that your sister should have speedy recovery with her back pain. With regards to her case, I am unable to make recommendations on mri findings alone. However, many of our patients have similar mri findings which include bulging discs, disc bulge, annulus tear, ,annular tear,  etc. and have experienced excellent results. Back Clinics of Canada offers a unique system called the High Performance Healing System, which integrates Spinal Decompression as a component of an extremely successful approach which is both non-surgical and drugless and in over 20,000 sessions offered we have seen unparalleled lasting results. The system also incorporates Class IV k- Laser, this is the most powerful non - surgical therapeutic laser around as well as Disc Renewal plus - a breakthrough nutritional supplementation system which supports the healing of damaged connective tissue as well as can help reduce pain and inflammation. We have many patients from all over the world, including from India where you are writing to me,  who travel to our clinic to be evaluated for their candidacy as well as treatment.

Spinal Decompression Toronto. I have treated patients many thousands of times which enables me to answer questions about which conditions are most successfully treated by Spinal Decompression. I can answer any questions regarding the science and methodology of how Spinal Decompression works. I can speak about who is and who is not a good candidate for Spinal Decompression, and I can speak about alternative treatments for severe, chronic back pain and neck pain. I can also speak about the various conditions which respond to spinal decompression care as well as which conditions should not receive this care I cannot make specific diagnoses or specific treatment recommendations for a patient without first conducting a consultation and examination with them. There are general protocol guidelines that I can share. I cannot recommend any individual to make changes to their medications or current medical care (prescribed by another doctor). I cannot make specific comments about another doctor.
