Every 21st century living adult, young or old should recognize that almost everybody at one point or another experiences back pain due to physical activity, aging, and sports or job related injuries. Traditional remedies like painkillers, high risk back surgeries or just learning to live with the pain are not the only available alternatives nowadays. The modern medical technology helping improve the quality of life of thousands of people is the painless, non-surgical, and less expensive and FDA approved spinal disc decompression technology. Medical studies have revealed that this painless revolutionary treatment has an 86% success ratio.

What types of back pain and spinal related problems can be treated by Spinal Disc Decompression?

Ailments that can be treated using spinal decompression are herniated discs, degenerative spinal disc diseases, sciatica, protruding discs, posterior facet or joint syndrome and unsuccessful back and neck surgeries.

‘Vacuum Effect’ Breakthrough and History of Spinal Disc Decompression

How did the revolutionary idea of spinal disc decompression come about? NASA scientists discovered a common occurrences among their astronauts who were suffering from back pain. All accounted their conditions to have improved after a space mission. The scientists upon investigation came to the conclusion that the improvement in their conditions was due to the lack of force bearing on the spine while in space. Instead there was a decompression or negative pressure that gently repositioned or moved the herniated disc back in place which lessened the pain brought about by the pressure of the protruding discs on the spinal nerves. The vacuum effect also multiplied the flow of blood rich with nutrients, oxygen, and water from the outside of the spinal discs to go inside, thus allowing the spinal discs to recover by itself.

So how do you re-create these conditions on earth? Dr. Allen Dyer, the genius who invented the cardiac defibrillator, that saves heart attack victims all around the world, also invented the spinal disc decompression treatment table in 1987. He designed a technology that replaced ineffective conventional traction tables which do not produce any decompression effect or vacuum effect but just stretches the muscles and spine. Dr. Dyers, technological invention replicated the ‘vacuum effect’ necessary for the spinal discs to mend. In 1996, his invention was acknowledged by the United States FDA as risk-free and effective.

How does Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy Work?

The patient is placed on a computer controlled spinal decompression table. The doctor enters customized treatment dependent on his analysis which may include confirmation from MRI results. The machine then positions the body and applies force to produce a spinal decompression that will release the pressure involving the spinal discs and nerves. The negative pressure also enables the herniated disc to finally be replaced into its normal position. This negative pressure also forces the oxygen and nutrient rich blood to flow within the spinal discs and ease natural healing.

Depending on the case, an average of twenty to twenty-eight treatments are necessary spread over a period of at most two months to experience the complete benefits of the therapy. Treatment is around thirty to forty-five minutes. Spinal disc decompression therapy is also accompanied by application of hot or cold compresses to speed up the healing of the back injury. The patient is likewise instructed to have re-hydration therapy or to take lots of water, change his diet and take nutrition and vitamin supplements, and execute recommended exercises to tone the back and encourage faster healing.

Revolution in Spinal Disc Decompression Technology

The machine has undergone many revolutions since the late 80s. In 2000, a machine was designed to also treat neck problems and to make the treatment process more comfortable for patients. Currently, the cutting-edge technological innovation in spinal disc decompression is the Articulating Spinal Decompression or Range-of-Motion (ROM) spinal decompression treatment table which allows the doctor to vary or introduce adjustments to the spinal posture of the patient while the decompression process is ongoing. The increasing ability to make the necessary adjustments or vary the position of the spine enables the distraction or pulling forces of the decompression to get deeper into areas of the spinal discs and tissues, that previous models of spinal decompression machines cannot target.

As biotechnology improves, many people being troubled by back pain can be helped through a safe, non-invasive and less expensive spinal disc decompression therapy. However, more intensive research needs to be carried out on its continued effectiveness on whether it does completely replace or just postpone back pain surgeries. However, for citizens of industrialized countries whose aging population are to a greater extent more active and are living longer today, and any surgery is life threatening; the good points of these engineering innovations in spinal disc decompression technology can only be viewed as a genuinely positive medical innovation of the 21st century.
