A non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that can relieve back pain resulting from many different conditions. Non-surgical spinal decompression is achieved through the use of a mechanical traction device applied through a computer that controls the force and angle of disc distraction, which reduces the body’s natural propensity to resist external force or generate muscle spasm. This enhanced control and allows non-surgical spinal decompression tables to apply a traction force to the discs of the spinal column reducing intradiscal pressure.
Non-Surgical Decompression is very effective at treating: Bulging discs, Herniated discs, Pinched nerves, Sciatica, Radiating arm pain, Degenerative disc disease, Leg pain, and Facet syndrome, Protruding Discs, Prolapsed Discs, Spinal Root Impingement, Hypo-mobility, Compressions Fracture, Joint Pain, Radicular Pain, Discogenic Pain.
During the decompression phase, the pressure in the disc is reduced and a vacuum type of effect . At the same time nutrition is diffused into the disc allowing the annulus fibrosis to heal. Very rarely is the nerve root compressed from the herniated disc and usually, the back and leg pain associated with these conditions is a result of irritation to the nerve root sleeve by the inflammatory chemicals that are released as a result of inflammation in the disc.
The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.
