Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is a pain-free procedure designed to relieve the pressure that can build up on the discs and nerves.
As pressure builds inside the disc, the viscous, jelly-like tissue contained inside can be placed under so much force it will eventually lead to the annulus, or outer band of the disc, to bulge, herniate or rupture. (Figure 1)
When the disc has ruptured or "herniated," it more often than not creates pressure against one or more of the spinal nerves. When pressure is applied to nerves in the spine, severe or chronic pain can radiate to the legs or arms.
Non-surgical Decompression is believed to create a negative pressure within the disc. This negative pressure may allow the herniated or bulging material to be drawn slowly inward toward the center of the disc. (Figure 2) Once the impinging material is removed from the nerve, in some cases the pain being experienced is almost immediately relieved.
