How does decompression therapy work?
Our office was pleased to provide the first disc decompression table in the greater Quad-Cities area. Disc Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment for low back pain and disc herniations. It is safe. It is comfortable. It is effective. Check out the following pages to find out if disc decompression therapy is right for you.
Disc decompression works by restoring proper function to an injured disc. This is done by producing a controlled, mechanical traction on the spine using the Triton DTS Decompression Table. During the "pull" injured discs are gently stretched apart, producing a suction force inside the disc. This draws disc buldges and herniations back into the center of the disc along with oxygen, water, nutrients, and other healing substances. The end result is a strong, healthy, properly functioning disc in about 84% of the patients.
Disc decompression is a lot like disc rehabilitation. Not only does decompression minimize disc bulges and herniations, but it also restores the proper nutrient supply to the disc. This allows the disc to regain its proper motion, and essentially proper nutrient supply. If the decompression is successful, the disc remains healthy even after the decompression treatment is finished.
