Pressure on your spinal discs results in pain and additional chronic conditions. Poor posture, repetitive stress, and acute injuries cause your vertebrae discs to slip out of alignment, which applies pressure to your spine. This pressure causes vertebrae compression, chronic pain from bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and sciatica.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a gentle, non-surgical method for treating compressed spinal discs to prevent further injuries. The inability for compressed discs to supply themselves with nutrients prolongs the pressure on the spinal column, making it difficult to heal from minor injuries sustained throughout daily activity. As a result, compressed discs lead to two problems in the spine: a bulge or herniation. Both press against the nerve and cause disc instability.
A bulging/herniated disc is when you have a weak spot in your spine that results in discs popping out of its normal parameters, causing pain to radiate throughout surrounding regions.
Common causes of herniated discs include:
