What is a Decompression Therapy?
Etiology of the herniated disc
Human body consists of 33 vertebrae and fibrous cartilage intervertebral discs.
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.
