Spinal Decompression for Lower Back Pain

Posted by Admin on April 25, 2007
Spinal Decompression provides an alternative to surgery in many cases of lower back pain caused by herniated discs. A herniated disc is a condition of the disc. The disc a jelly-like material between two bones in your spine. There is a middle section called a nucleus and an outer band called an annulus. As we age the outer band, or the annulus, which is a collagen based tissue, begins to break down. The nucleus, which is in the middle, migrates outside and puts pressure on the spinal nerve causing either pain or dysfunction.

Spinal decompression accomplishes two things. It increases the height between the vertebrae to create a negative pressure within a disc, which will then draw back the disc material. It also increases blood flow to the disc which will then allow the outer layer or the annular bands to start laying down new cartilage fibers, so that disc lesion can actually be without surgery.

The beauty behind spinal decompression is that it allows the blood to return back to the disc. The disc will begin healing once again. Blood is very essential to this whole process, increasing blood flow to the disc allows the natural healing process to occur.
