Low back pain and associated complications such as buttock pain, leg pain, sciatica, numbness, tingling and weakness is all too common in our society. The disability and agony that this causes in our lives is staggering. When treating any disease it is essential to identify the cause.
All of these result in a significant increases in the pressure inside the disc causing it to bulge (disc protrusion) or herniate (disc prolapse) whereby the gel leaves the disc and results in pressure on the nerve.
The obvious goal of any effective treatment would be to increase the distance between the vertebrae by an efficient amount to cause a decrease in the pressure in the disc thus causing decompression. This decompression should be accomplished at the specific disc or discs which are symptomatic therefore making targeted treatment imperative.
It is well known that if the lumbar curvature is increased, the weight on the disc is decreased, therefore decompressing it. Achieving spinal decompression by curve restoration is usually relatively easy to maintain thus resulting in a satisfactory immediate result but also long term outcome with preservation of the relief obtained and drastically improving the pain on the lower back region.
