How Does Decompression Work?
Under distraction, pressure on the disc is reduced producing much relief within a short period of time. A series of treatments will be required depending upon the severity of the condition. This series of treatments progressively directs fluids, nutrients and oxygen to be worked back into the disc. This process actively drives rebuilding and accelerates the repair and eventual healing of damaged spinal discs.
In addition, accomplishing a reduction of intradiscal pressure helps draw a bulging or herniated disc back into its proper anatomic central position. This pressure reducing measure furthers it's beneficial effect by reducing often existing irritation upon compressed nerve root tissue (commonly described as nerve pain, tingling or numbing conditions).
