Most people have heard of the term "Herniated Disc". Also they may have heard of a "Slipped disc", "torn disc", "ruptured disc" but these are not necessarily the correct terms when it comes to what actually happens to a disc. Discs are little shock absorbers located in between the vertebrae in our spine. There is an inside gel like substance called the "nucleus pulposus" and an outer layer called the "annulus fibrosus".
The herniated disc occurs when the outer layer gets cracked or torn and the inner gel like substance then leaks out. Think of a jelly donut leaking the gel outside of the hole. This gel then causes a inflammatory response called a "inflammatory cascade" which is very painful and in addition the disc can then place pressure onto the spinal nerves which is very painful and uncomfortable.
Symptoms of this include:
-Dull to sharp pain in the back which typically worsens when bending either forward or backward at the waist.
-Increased pain upon coughing and or especially sneezing.
-Shooting, stabbing, throbbing pain down the leg referred to as "Sciatica".
Why do disc herniate?:
-Lack of exercise.
-Incorrect form when exercising or lifting weights or even light objects.

DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression Treatment In San Diego CA is available to those who qualify for treatment.

Treatment works extremely well and we have a very high success rate resolving these issues without the use of drugs, injections or spinal surgery. The treatment is pain-free and works with the help of 3 computers controlling a gentle pull and relax phase that allows the vertebrae in the spine to be slowly pulled apart in a comfortable manner creating a negative "vacuum" to suction the discs off of the nerves while allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to get back into the disc for proper healing. Treatment also involves re-teaching the body how to move better with less spinal stress and strain and spinal rehabilitation with focus on proper core muscle activation and engagement is crucial.
