Back Pain & Disc Problems.

Back pain is the largest single cause of disability in the UK and low back pain being the most prevalent. 

It is most commonly caused by the degeneration of the spine or intervertebral discs. 

Age is a contributing factor, but back pain is often accelerated by poor posture, a sedentary lifestyle and repetitive movements.

Cartilage Degeneration and the consequences:

Healthy cartilage surrounding the intervertebral discs regenerates constantly, preventing damage to the back. If the cartilage cells of the spinal discs lack the required energy, or if their cell metabolism is disturbed, their natural repair mechanisms can no longer function. This can lead to the degeneration of the disc, which can result in painful herniation (slipped disc) – most commonly in the neck and low back.  

​Arthritis of the spine is caused by the degeneration of the cartilage within the articulating facet joints.  See our page on osteoarthritis for more details about treating arthritis of the spine.

How can MBST help with back pain?

MBST directly targets the cartilage degeneration in order to stimulate cellular regrowth.

It does this by transferring energy to the specific area in order to regenerate the damaged tissue cells of the spinal column and the intervertebral discs.
