When pressure builds up inside the disc, it causes bulging of the jelly-like disc material. With increasing or prolonged pressure, it often leads to a disc rupture or herniation which spills out the disc material. The bulging disc material is what puts pressure on the nerves and other structures that cause pain. This pain can travel into the buttocks and down the legs or into the toes. It can cause numbness and also lead to dysfunction.
Decompression therapy relieves pain by creating a vacuum type suction which reverses the high pressure inside the disc and draws the bulging material back into the disc. The procedure is non-surgical and can be successful in up to 86% of patients with herniated discs.
