Relieve Pressure – Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression is a clinically proven traction based therapy achieving a phenomenal success rate with reduction of bulging discs in recent MRI studies.
This therapy cycles through distraction and relaxation phases creating a negative pressure called “vacuum effect” in the affected disc or discs.
This vacuum effect creates an influx of fluid and herniated disc material to help re-inflate the discs.
This also helps stimulate new circulation to damaged disc structures to aid in healing.
A Traction Based Therapy
“Decompression” itself is a “phenomenon” that takes place during a traction based treatment, that is if it is done correctly on a machine capable of accomplishing it.
The Decompression computer controls variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices.
The pre-programmed patterns for ramping the amount of axial distraction up and down allow for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc re-hydration by minimizing muscle guarding. This allows for the absolute highest level of decompression to occur ensuring the most effective treatment available.
This ensures the most comfortable and relaxing treatment possible, many patients even fall asleep during treatment!
Object of Spinal Decompression
MRI Studies conducted have found that this method alone is successful in 86% of cases.
The object of decompression is to reduce the pressure inside the disc and facilitate the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back inside the disc.
Studies Support Effectiveness
One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases!
Another study reported that 86% of ruptured disc patients achieved “good” (50-89% improvement) to “excellent” (90-100% improvement) results after Spinal Decompression Therapy alone.
