Spinal Decompression for The Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex
Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of bulging or herniated disc back in place. It also helps draw fluids, nutrients and blood supply back into the disc, "feeding" the disc and reversing the disc bulge, herniation or degeneration process. Decompression achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc. This essentially creates a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy using FDA cleared equipment has shown from 70-90% success rate dependant on the type of cases being studied. Single level contained herniations showed the greatest effective rate...even after failed surgery. Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc may be isolated and placed under lowered pressure--possibly even negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
