Are you tired of living with lower back pain, numbness or pain in the legs? What if your life could be changed without the use of pain medications, large injections, or having to undergo surgery? In this article, you’ll see this new technology available in your area. It is called the Disc Force, a non-surgical spinal decompression machine.
The spine is made up of 24 bones, separated by discs between them. These discs act as shock absorbers that protect our spine from the forces of gravity as well as the stresses of walking. Imagine two cups of coffee and a jelly donut in the center, the coffee cups will represent the spinal bones and the jelly donut representing the disc. As you get older or experience a past injury, the disc can go bad, causing the inner fluid (the jelly from the donut) to slip out, causing the disc (or donut) to lose its proper shape and size. When this happens, this is called a disc bulge or herniation. Sometimes, the disc can be so compressed and misshaped, that it can touch the spinal nerves or the spinal cord itself. This can cause numbness, tingling, or pain that can travel as far down as the toes.
Many times, an individual is forced to undergo epidural injections or sometimes even surgery in order to fix the disc. However, what if you could allow the disc to heal itself? By allowing the disc to heal non-invasively, you could limit the pain medication taken, get fewer injections and sometimes even prevent the need for surgery.
Thanks to the work of physicians and medical engineers, the Disc Force decompression machine has been created. When applied, the disc force applies a negative pressure in the person’s back, and specifically takes all pressure off the exact disc that needs treatment. This negative pressure acts as a vacuum, allowing the jelly contents of the disc to go back into its donut disc shape. The subtle pumping action of the decompression machine allows the disc to gain water and nutrients in order to properly heal itself.
The main conditions the Disc Force has had its most success with are:
- Back pain
- Disc Bulges & Herniations
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Facet Syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
- Failed Back Surgery *
* Patients cannot have any metal implants in their lower-back (rods, screws, or cages).
