If you are a victim of bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves and arm or leg pain, then your spine may be exerting constant pressure on your discs. And that’s not all. Bad posture, poor body mechanics, continual stress and acute injury can exert even more pressure on your discs. And this amount of pressure on your discs is not good at all.
Your compressed discs may potentially lead to two major problems. One is that a bulge or herniation may start to press on a nerve. The second major problem is that the discs may become brittle and fragile. What makes the situation worse is that compressed discs limit the amount of the essential nutrients it needs to be able to heal itself.
Traditionally, people would resort to surgery or chiropractic treatment services to correct their compressed discs. But today there is a new and much better way one can take to be able to do so: spinal decompression. Spinal decompressionis known to be a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for any disc pain found in the neck and the back. This cost-effective treatment does not involve any needles at all and you will not have to unclothe yourself during the process of the treatment. In fact, the treatments are performed rather quickly.
A spinal decompression treatment is a great FDA approved alternative to surgery and it has actually shown great results. It can provide people with gentle decompression of their discs through the use of a decompression table.
The process of spine decompression would involve the patient being strapped in a decompression table. The decompression table would then begin to move and apply a distraction force to the compressed disc, which is the main target area in the spine. The force applied is controlled by a computer and it is applied between periods of relaxation.
What this process does is that it gently pulls apart the spine. As it does this, it also elongates it and pulls the discs back to shape because of the vacuum it creates between the vertebrae. The results will be small but gradual. They add up over time as it lets your discs reshape themselves, heal and revive the flow of nutrients they need to help accelerate the healing process.
