If you live in the areas of Camden, Cherry Hill or Haddon Township and suffer with a herniated disc, then the treatment that would most often be recommended is spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression is a treatment that is drug-free and non-surgical. Spinal decompression therapy involves the gentle stretching of the spine. This procedure takes the strain and pressure off the compressed disc and the vertebrae thus relieving the back of a lot of pain. Vax-D Spinal Decompression Therapy is a proven technology that has provided relief for thousands of back pain patients nationwide.
Herniated Disc Treatment
When the discs are compressed, as they are in a herniated disc, there is a great deal of pressure being put on the nerves that surround the spine, causing the patient a lot of pain. Spinal decompression removes that pressure from the nerves and offers pain relief. For some patients the results may be long term pain relief. The reason spinal decompression therapy relieves pain is because it opens up the space between the vertebrae. Spinal decompression therapy is often used to relieve the pain and discomfort of degenerative disc disease, a common cause of back pain, and facet syndrome.
In some instances spinal decompression therapy may be used as a placebo for those suffering from degenerative disc disease or facet syndrome. Patients will often say they feel pain with these conditions when there should not be any pain however, the conditions do exist. In that case, the doctor will recommend spinal decompression therapy to alleviate that pain even though the pain is psychosomatic.
Many people suffer from sciatic pain and experience pain from a disease called sciatica. As an actual medical problem sciatica does not exist. Sciatica is a symptom of an existing back problem which causes pressure on the sciatic nerve. Pressure on the sciatic nerve can cause lumbar stenosis, as an example, which can in turn lead to incontinence. Anyone that feels pressure on the sciatic nerve should see the doctor immediately to deter any serious back problem.
