WHY IS IT SO CRITICAL IN
SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?
For one, get to and maintain your optimal weight. When you carry extra weight --- particularly ABDOMINAL FAT ---- there is an incredible amount of mechanical pressure that is exerted on the Spinal Discs. I am also a big advocate of using an Inversion Table. Many people get relief from their disc symptoms by using Inversion Therapy. Just make sure that you do it the right way (HERE). For severe cases of HERNIATED DISCS, Spinal Decompression Therapy is a logical choice if your goal is to avoid surgery.
Spinal Decompression Therapy gently pulls on your low back, creating Negative Pressure inside of the Spinal Discs. Think of Negative Pressure as a vacuum. As the pressure inside the disc decreases, something has to fill that void. The herniated portion of the disc is allowed to be pulled back under center. With the proper amount of time, nutrition, and OTHER FACTORS, the majority of these discs can heal without SURGICAL INTERVENTION. For more on this topic, you can READ THIS.
