Spinal Decompression therapy is an advanced state-of-the-art rehab that provides non-surgical, non-invasive and drug-free alternative treatment for patients who suffer from:
- Lower back & neck pain
- Pain due to herniated or bulging discs
- Persistent pain from a degenerated discs not responding to conventional therapy (Chiropractic + Physical therapy)
- Recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old
- Spinal stenosis
- Pinched nerve
- Spinal arthritis
- Facet syndrome
It is a form of computer-controlled, intermittent traction that is designed to provide precise decompression to the injured spinal joints or discs to relieve the pressure on spinal nerves. When decompression therapy is applied to lumbar or cervical spine in variable direction as necessary for patient’s condition, it creates a negative pressure in the center of the intervertebral disc, thus creating a vacuum phenomenon in order to retract or reduce the size of the herniated or bulging disc’s gelatinous internal material (nucleus purposes). While the negative pressure within the disc not only helps to eliminate pressure from nerve compression but at the same time, it creates an osmotic gradient, which allows the compressed or degenerated discs to draw in moisture & nutrients, reoxygenate and rehydrate from the surrounding body tissues and repair the injured annulus. Intervertebral discs do not have proper circulation themselves, and therefore, they receive their nutrition primarily from the cartilaginous end plates of the vertebrae above and below the disc and also partly from epidural vessels. Overall, Spinal Decompression therapy treats the patient’s pain by correcting the root of the problem, with complete or very long lasting relief.
Research in the medical community has shown the effectiveness of spinal decompression therapy of 86% success rate with immediate relief of symptoms. Using MRI imaging, one of the studies has reported 90% reduction of disc herniation in 10 out of 14 cases.
What is different about Decompression therapy is that it can alter the biochemistry and physiology of the disc, while the surgery cannot.
