The highest success rate for relieving pain associated with herniated or bulging discs – even after failed herniated disc surgery — is spinal decompression therapy, using a Kennedy KDT 650 Table.
Herniated disc treatment is non-surgical, traction-based therapy for relief of back and leg pain, as well as neck and arm pain. It is FDA approved and works by gently stretching the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints and muscular tissues.
While improving blood flow, bulging disc treatment cycles through distraction and relaxation phases.
Herniated disc treatment helps you avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential for unsuccessful back surgery. It can relieve discomfort quickly and naturally. Many patients experience a marked decrease in the severity and frequency of pain and stiffness.
Spinal decompression uses computer technology to control variations in the unloading of the spine, avoiding the body’s muscle contraction response.
Intradiscal pressure is lowered, creating a vacuum, or negative pressure – which allows herniated material to be drawn back into place and permits rehydration of the disc. Since herniated material is no longer in contact with the nerves, the disc is in good health, so pain is relieved.
Herniated disc treatment is different from traction. Traction is a simple static force; your body reacts to traction by contracting muscles surrounding the spine, increasing intradiscal pressure. This does not allow discs to rehydrate and heal, which is what prevents relief from pain.
Disc decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment for spinal injuries and spinal pain. Effectively relieving the pain associated with various conditions, it reduces the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading, created by distraction and positioning.
Decompression therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.
The idea behind decompression is to relieve the stress bearing down on the discs inside of your spinal column, permitting the discs to rehydrate, regain their ideal volume, and begin to heal.
This treatment removes the genuine cause of your pain and symptoms rather than hiding it with drugs or taking the drastic approach of slicing the herniation out with surgery.
