Why Proper Spinal Decompression Therapy Helps Retract and Repair Herniated Spinal Discs?
Spinal decompression therapy is the latest form of spinal rehabilitation in the United States and Europe. The effectiveness of this form of treatment has been properly documented and thoroughly researched. The general consensus among those who researched this therapy, thus far, is very favorable. We have a brief review of decompression therapy’s effectiveness.
Today, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is the latest and most sought-after form of non-invasive, non-surgical spinal rehabilitation in US, Canada, and Europe. Research from US , Europe , Japan , and India  cite and recommend the use of non-surgical decompression therapy for conditions such as Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD), Facet Syndrome, Failed Back Surgery/Post Surgical Pain Syndrome, Herniated Disc (Neck & Low Back), Sciatica and Spinal Stenosis, some reporting 86%  to 92%  improvement.
It is Possible to Rehydrate a Degenerated Spinal Disc With Advanced Spinal Decompression Therapy Devices Like the RxDecom®
According to the outcome of a medical research presented to the American Society of Neuroimaging, herniated and degenerated lumbar discs could be shown by sonography and disco-manometry to have elevated intradiscal pressure, preventing proper disc nutrition . Therefore decompressing the over-pressurized disc should allow for healing and repair of disc herniations and annulus tears . The following are highlights of a study on 20 patients who received a four-week course of decompression therapy, which was documented through serial (pre and post therapy) MRIs :
- A 90% reduction of subligamentous nucleus herniation in 10 of 14 patients .
- Rehydration as detected by T2 and proton density signal increase .
- Repair of torn annulus observed in all 20 patients .
