What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression (NSSD) is uses a specialized table with computer control of the force and angle of disc distraction to provide non-invasive pain relief for bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal arthritis and spinal stenosis.
The patient’s spine is then gently guided through a gradual set of stretch and release cycles. These gentle cycles prevent back muscle spasms often associated with traditional overall traction. They also create a negative pressure within the affected discs. This force creates a vacuum effect that reduces spinal pressure and helps deliver nutrients and water to the disc. This vacuum effect actually draws fresh circulation and hydration right into the compressed or herniated discs that are pinching nerves and causing back pain. This enables the discs to begin healing on their own, often without any surgical intervention.
Relief can be quite immediate, in fact some patients actually fall asleep during treatment due to the relaxing pain relief. Although back pain relief is usually instantaneous during treatments, it normally takes several sessions over a few weeks to reshape the disc and achieve overall posture correction, which is the ultimate goal for long-term pain relief and good health.
