Disc Decompression Therapy
Do you have a lingering neck or back injury that is causing you severe or chronic pain? Has your quality of life diminished to the point that daily pain is keeping you from completing routine tasks, enjoying your favorite activities, or causing you to miss time at work?
If this is the case, your neck or back pain symptoms may be the result of a more serious spinal injury known as a Herniated Disc.
A herniated disc is typically a very painful spinal injury and if left untreated can result in long term or permanent spine damage and contribute to more serious health issues.
What Causes a Spinal Disc Herniation
A spinal misalignment or subluxation that results in a herniated disc can be caused by many different factors. Things like Sport Injuries, Workplace Injuries, Car Accidents, and even overuse can lead to subluxations and spinal misalignments that cause painful disc herniations.
The cause of a disc herniation is a spinal misalignment or subluxation, this type of spinal trauma causes the vertebra of the spine to compress the soft disc nucleus, pushing the disc annulus or disc wall outward causing it to bulge, putting pressure on the spinal nerve root, resulting in mild, severe, and sometimes debilitating pain.
When diagnosing and treating a herniated disc it’s important to determine what stage or type of spinal disc injury we are dealing with, the severity of the disc injury will dictate the individualized treatment plan.
Below you will find the four types of a herniated disc and different stages of deterioration and severity.
The Four Types of Herniated Disc:
- Stage 1: Disc Compression (Degeneration).
- Stage 2: Bulging Disc (Prolapse).
- Stage 3: Disc Protrusion (Extrusion).
- Stage 4: Herniated Disc (Sequestration).
When diagnosing and treating a herniated disc it’s important to determine the severity of the damage caused by the spinal misalignment.

Wichita’s Top Rated Herniated Disc Decompression Treatments
During a disc decompression therapy session, patients lie on a specialized table that is designed to gently stretch and decompress the spine. Our spinal decompression therapy utilizes a computer guided traction system that applies specific forces to the spine.
Disc decompression therapy creates negative pressure within the affected disc, which can help retract a herniated or bulging disc and relieve pressure on spinal nerves. By decompressing the vertebra, we can relieve pressure on the soft disc and encourage the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrients into the spinal disc, speeding up the healing process naturally without the need for surgery and addictive medications.
