Disc Decompresion

Disc decompression

We offer Spinal disc decompression therapy in our office for patients who have bulging and herniated or degenerated discs along the spinal column. The discs of the spine separate the bony segments (vertebrae) and provide a soft cushion for shock absorption, spacing and flexibility. When we are young, the discs have a lot of water content and are very resilient which explains why very few young people have problems like sciatica. As we age, we become less flexible and the discs begin to dehydrate, as a result, the disc becomes prone to damage and the fibers that hold it in place can tear. The remaining fluids in the disc can extrude outwards and create a bulge or a herniation. These can then put pressure on the spinal nerves and cause muscle tension, back pain, sciatica, numbness in the arms and hands among other symptoms.

Disc decompression uses state of the art technology to treat the neck and lower back. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that aids in reducing pain and increasing the mobility of the spine. By removing the pressure on the spinal nerves, we can reduce the pain and restriction and return patients to their regular level of activity in a shorter time period than ever before without any harmful side effects or post surgical complications.
