What is a Decompression Therapy?



What is a Decompression Therapy?

Etiology of the herniated disc

Human body consists of 33 vertebrae and fibrous cartilage intervertebral discs.
Intervertebral disc consists of annulus fibrosus (approximately 1 cm thick) and nucleus pulposus (jelly - like substance, 88% of water). These alleviate the load and impulse of upper body. Herniated disc is the disease that annulus fibrosus of intervertebral disc is deformed by continuous pressure or improper body posture and therefore, nucleus pulposus comes out of its original position and suppresses the spinal canal or nerve so that patients feel pain in their waist, legs and thigh.

What is decompression / traction therapy? 

Decompression therapy reduces the pressure in the lumbar vertebrae, putting back protruded nucleus pulposus in its original position. In other words, it is a physical therapy that bilaterally pulls upper body and lower part of the body and widens the interval between lumbar or cervical vertebrae.

Obstruction in treatment

Herniated disc needs time to recover naturally, however, there is always a load of upper body to the lumbar vertebrae so that "the herniated disc" easily recurs despite of treatment.

What if continuous decompression therapy is possible?

If continuous treatment is possible to reduce the pressure in the lumbar vertebrae, the herniated disc is easy to treat. Disk Dr. is the device that makes continuous treatment possible. Disk Dr. has the same effect as the traction therapy you can receive in the hospital. Moreover, it makes continuous treatment possible during everyday life while hospital treatment is only temporary. Also through the ambulatory traction therapy, you can obtain effects of correcting posture and enhancing the physical strength around the invertebral disc.
