Disc decompression traction procedures are used by healthcare professionals specializing in therapeutic procedures that facilitate healing of biomechanical abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system of the human body.
Intervertebral discs are commonly treated for abnormal function due to displacement of the nucleus pulposus, the gelatinous center that acts as a ball-bearing joint and shock absorber. The surrounding annulus fibrosus, rubberband-like layers of fibro-elastic tissue, maintains a grip of the central nucleus pulposus. Spinal disc herniation is treated in a variety of ways, from exercise therapy or manipulation to surgery.
Recent development of Decompression traction equipment has led to a higher success rate of disc healing than previous treatment options. The decompression traction procedure relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves by drawing areas of herniated disc back into place. This is accomplished by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure, creating a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure. This process allows the stretched or torn annulus fibrosus tissue fibers to heal and tighten due to the slack created by the decompression traction therapy.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment for low back and neck pain and disc herniations.
- It is safe.
- It is comfortable.
- It is effective.
- It is cost effective.
- It is a reasonable alternative to surgery.
Spinal Decompression therapy works by restoring proper function to an injured disc. During the pull phase, injured discs are gently stretched apart, producing a suction force inside the disc. This draws disc buldges and herniations back into the center of the disc along with oxygen, water, nutrients, and other healing substances. The end result is a strong, healthy, properly functioning disc in about 84% of the patients.
Spinal Decompression therapy is a lot like disc rehabilitation. Not only does decompression minimize disc bulges and herniations, but it also restores the proper nutrient supply to the disc. This allows the disc to regain its proper motion, and essential nutrient supply. If the decompression is successful, the disc remains healthy even after the treatment is finished.
