Herniated Disc

Discs are made of soft cartilage covered by a layer of tough cartilage. This acts as cushioning between your vertebrae. Age, genetics, injury, lifestyle choices, and posture issues can cause the inside part of a disc to protrude out of outer layer. As this happens, the body interprets the leaking of the disc as a treat and launches an autoimmune attack, causing inflammation and pain. Spinal decompression can be used to relieve pain caused by injured disc.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

  • Pain Relief -spinal decompression reduces pressure on the affected disc, relieving pain and reducing pressure on nerves
  • Restore Disc Positioning - the negative pressure caused by spinal decompression allows the leaking material of a herniated disc to be suctioned back into the outer layer
  • Non-Invasive - no incisions are made, so there is no chance of infection, blood clots, or other complications associated with surgical intervention
