As noted above, the pain of herniated or bulged discs is related to compression of the nerves. Non-surgical Spinal Decompression for disc problems works by removing the pressure on the nerve by specifically targeting the problematic disc. This relieves pain and, in some cases, creates a vacuum effect in which the herniation itself is reduced. In other words, decompression traction creates negative pressure within in the disc, creating a vacuum that draws the bulging disc material (nucleus pulposus) back into the disc’s outer shell (annulus fibrosus). This process helps the stretched or torn annulus fibrosus to heal.
Spinal Decompression addresses both the cause and symptoms of disc problems without surgery or drugs.
