Many people suffer from severe back and neck pain as a result of herniated or bulging discs. In the past, a patient suffering from these symptoms went in for surgery or simply told to live with it. Now, thanks to a team of top physcians and medical engeneers, there is an alternative to to surgery - SPINAL DECOMPRESSION. This treatment is safe and effective and no risk of surgery, anesthesia and injections. Spinal Decompression significantly reduces pain in many patients and enables patients to return to their normal lifestyles.
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment performed by a computerized controlled table. The involved disc is isolated by tractioning and relaxing cycles throuout the treatment forming negative disc presure. It work by seperating the disc a few milimeters creating retraction of the bulging disc and relieving presure. This decompression helps pull water, oxygen and nutrients back into the disc. This negative pressure can actually help pull the disc bulge back into the disc, and healing of the outer disc begin.
Excessive stress (car accident) or disc injury weakens the outer disc fibers. As the outer fibers weaken the disc compresses and loses height. This will cause the vertebrae above and below to get closer together and put pressure on the nerve. We call this a pinched nerve. A pinched nerve is serious uncorrected may cause serious health issues.
