Spinal Disc Decompression

What are Disc and Nerve Conditions?

The spine is made up of a series of discs and nerves. A disc is a small cartilage pad that is situated between spinal vertebrae. The soft jelly-like center is contained by layers of fibrous tissues. Each disc serves as a connector, spacer, and shock absorber for the spine. When healthy, these discs allow normal bending and turning. Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. This is how many disc problems begin.

How do Disc and Nerve Conditions Happen?

Because of the way each disc is attached to the vertebra above and below it, a disc cannot “slip” as commonly thought. However, trauma or injury to the spine can cause bulging discs in neck, a slip disc in lower back and more. This can cause pain and pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots and interfere with function.
