Spinal Decompression Therapy
SDT is a therapy in which the pressure in the disc is reduced. A vacuum type effect is produced on the center of disc (i.e. nucleus pulposus) which allows diffusion of nutrition into the disc. This speeds up the process of healing.
Repeated unloading and decompressions allow diffusion of fluids which aid in reducing the chemical mediators of inflammation and hence lessen the pain.
The speed, duration, angle and pattern of decompression can be adjusted according to the condition of patient. A series of treatment sessions make sure your nerve which was getting compressed due to slipped disc is relieved of the pressure on it.
Conditions that SDT helps in treating:
- Protruding, Bulging or Herniated Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Posterior Facet Syndrome
- Acute Facet Problems
- Radicular Pain e.g. Sciatica Pain in legs
- Prolapsed Disc
- Spinal Root Impingement
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Facet Syndrome
- Discogenic Low Back Pain
