Let’s talk DISCS!
The negative pressure of decompression releases pressure that has built on the disc and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging disc to eventually return to a normal position.
Decompression is truly the most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration pressure on the nerve root. We can treat your disc-related issues at our Physio clinic.
What is a Disc? What does a Disc do?
The disc consisting of a soft cartilage material that separates the spinal vertebrae.
The middle of the Disc is called the nucleus and the outer layer is called the annulus.
These discs act as shock absorbers BUT if a disc is injured it continues to degenerate and does not heal properly.
One of the amazing benefits of decompression is that it heightens the disc space and returns it to their normal size and function.
The term bulging disc (Disc Herniation) implies that a rupture or a tear of the ring shapedfibers occurs, allowing the spread of nucleur material beyond the verterbral margin.
The nuclear material may protrude out and cause a swelling of the outer annulus fibrosis or rupture through the annulus and push behind the back ligament.
The annular bulge or Disc bulge is a small disc herniation that does not directly contact the nerve root and left untreated can easily progress to more nuclear protrusion because of the loss of the annular fibers to contain the nucleus.
Spinal decompression treatments with us may help to effectively treat low back pain due to disc issues.
