How can spinal decompression treat disc disorders?
Modern decompression is a non-surgical therapy option which is used to re-create lost intervertebral space, hopefully eliminating pain and associated neurological symptoms. Decompression works by gently stretching the spine, creating a vacuum effect. The vacuum will draw disc bulges or herniations back into the intended vertebral area reducing irritation of soft tissue surrounding the disc. Oxygen, water, nutrients and some other healing substances are drawn in through this vacuum as well. The final desired result with spinal decompression surgery is a stronger, healthier disc that functions properly. Decompression has also been found to be effective in the treatment of facet disorders often accompanied by degenerative disc/joint disorders, arthritis and postural disorders.
