Disc Force Spinal Decompression PDF Print E-mail
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical and drug-free answer for many back and disc related syndromes of the lumbar or cervical spine. Many people across the country have found relief from the discomfort associated with back pain, neck pain as well as herniated discs, bulging discs, facet syndrome, degenerative joint disease, pinched nerves, and other spinal afflictions.

Disc Force Decompression System utilizes TDC Therapy. TDC Therapy uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain and dysfunction. Why spinal disc decompression works:

This FDA-cleared technology relieves pain through a form of traction, with spinal decompression the desired result. Disc Force provides TDC Therapy. TDC Therapy targets specific segments of pathology and thus can isolate treatment to the specific area. The goal of both the technology and the physician is to work with the body’s natural healing powers toward enlarging the space between the discs. Decompression releases pressure that builds on the disc and nerves, eventually allowing the herniated and bulging disc to return to its normal position. Decompression is the treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review in 2004, 86% of all cases experienced spinal pain relief with disc decompression. Of course, there are no guarantees for decompression but there are no guarantees for surgery or any invasive procedure. Dr. Timothy Kremchek, one of the world’s leading Orthopedic surgeons, recommends Disc Force prior to surgery or injections. With decompression, the cost is significantly less than surgery and the chance of hospital infection is absent.

What are some common causes of lower back pain?

Herniated or Bulging Disc
A herniated disc is a common cause of severe back pain and sciatica. Discs are soft flexible "shock absorbers" that separate each of the bones, or vertebrae, in the spine. These discs have a rigid outside rim, but are soft and gel-like inside. Activity, stress, or a mechanical problem in the spine can cause one of the discs to bulge and become misshapen. A disc becomes herniated when it degenerates to the point that the gelatin within the disc protrudes outward. Classic low back pain occurs if this material extrudes or bulges far enough to press against a nerve root.

Degenerative Disc Disease
This condition is a major cause of chronic low back pain. Because the discs in the spine do not have a dedicated blood supply, the discs must rely on a process called diffusion to receive their supply ofwater, nutrients, and oxygen. If the flow of these elements is disrupted, the vertebral discs can degenerate. This degeneration can cause spinal structures to pinch (impinge) nerve roots, thereby causing pain. Vertebral discs can also degenerate simply due to the aging process.

Posterior Facet Syndrome
The facet joints can wear down. In such cases, a nerve can become pinched (impinged) and cause pain.

Sciatica refers to a pain felt along the length of the sciatic nerve. The pain is usually felt in the buttock where it radiates down the back of the leg. At some time, up to 40% of people experience paincaused by compression of this nerve.

Acute Back Pain
Acute low back pain generally lasts less than six months. A few cases may resolve without medical attention, although many reoccur.

Chronic Back Pain
Chronic low back pain persists beyond six months.

Pain in Legs like Sciaica One of the most severe forms of back pain is associated with sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body gets blocked or occluded. This is a common problem and when a disc bulges or herniates it can feel like a sharp shooting pain down the back into the buttocks or even into the toes. In extreme examples it can cause permanent numbness and loss of muscle strength.

How can I relieve my lower back pain?

There are a variety of options available to relieve lower back pain. Many options involve surgery, painful injections, and heavy drug therapy. The complications from back surgery can be severe and may result in permanent debilitating conditions. Additionally, surgery can be extremely expensive and can require a long recovery period lasting several months. Pain medications can make it difficult to carry on with normal day-to-day activities.
Now there is a new option: TDC Therapy. This innovative approach to lower back pain relief is non-surgical, non-invasive and typically does not involve pain medications. The treatment is not only safe and painless, it’s even comfortable and relaxing. In most cases, all non-invasive remedies should be exhausted before anyone is referred for surgery. Be sure to ask your doctor about non-invasive treatments for back pain. For patients with a history of back pain who are currently experiencing symptoms that are interfering with activities, the first step is proper diagnostic testing to determine the cause of the symptoms and the severity of the problem.

The TDC Therapy, exclusive to Disc Force Technology, utilizes traction to create a form of decompression therapy. Disc Force is different from many generic traction devices that cannot isolate a specific segment, thus, not taking into account the normal lordotic curvature. TDC Therapy allows the disc to heal because the treatment stimulates the cartilage to regenerate. This is something it cannot do on its own without the technology provided by the Disc Force TDC Therapy. Spinal decompression utilizing Disc Force is a result of specific traction which allows the nutrient-rich blood to fill the disc space and foster the healing response.

What is TDC Therapy?

TDC Therapy - Intervertebral Traction Decompression Therapy - is a proven treatment exclusive to Disc Force for the relief of neck and lower back pain. By utilizing traction that’s isolated to the spinal segment involved, the purpose is to create spinal decompression as a result to specific traction . TDC Therapy offers a significant success rate. Patients have experienced dramatic pain relief and healing. This non-surgical solution to disc herniations and associated pain is changing the way doctors now treat these problems. Endorsed by leaders of both the chiropractic and medical profession, TDC Therapy is a proven system of protocols designed exclusively for Disc Force technology.

TDC Therapy is a unique and innovative approach for the relief of neck and lower back syndromes, including:
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Hand numbness
  • Sciatica
  • Acute or chronic neck and back pain
