Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is an FDA cleared treatment that has been helping thousands of people suffering from pain associated with bulging/herniated discs, stenosis, disc degeneration, facet arthrosis (arthritis), and chronic low back pain. It works by reversing the high intra-disc pressure.
When pressure builds up in the disc, it causes the jelly like substance in the middle (the nucleus) to bulge. Prolonged pressure can increase to the point where the outer cartilage bands of the disc rupture and now the material has leaked beyond the borders of the disc. This is known as a ruptured or herniated disc. This bulging or leaked material now puts pressure on the nerves, causing low back pain that can refer down the legs and into the feet and toes. Cervical (neck) disc herniations can cause neck pain that refers to the shoulders or down the arms and into the hands and fingers. This can even lead to numbness, dysfunction, and loss of strength.
