What is Spinal Decompression?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive treatment for patients who suffer from neck and back problems. A decompression treatment slowly and gently lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements by a customized medical device. The device pulls and releases, creating a pressure change within the intervertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue, and joints. This pressure change allows the disc bulges or herniations and nutrients to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration of the disc and surrounding tissues creates a physiological change which assists with the body's natural healing process.
How Spinal Decompression Works - A Formula for Relief
Through the stretch and release protocols of the decompression procedure, negative pressure is created in the disc over time. As a result, decompression creates a vacuum that draws herniated disc material, like nutrients, oxygen, and fluids, back into the disc.
When Negative is Positive
By relieving pressure in the spine, increased circulation also occurs in the disc which is a vital aid in the healing process.
The Hill DT Difference
The Hill DT Table is a great asset to spinal decompression treatment. It is a comprehensive program that has sensors built into the table that continually monitor the patient to ensure proper treatment is delivered. Nutrients and oxygen-rich blood are drawn back into the disc. Since these areas of the spine receive low circulation, this is a critical component of decompression.
