How Does the Treatment Work?
Functional Disc Stabilization ™ was developed with the goal of getting your discs back to their normal, healthy state. When discs are healthy, they are very flexible with a nucleus that is filled with a gel-like substance. A disc that has been worn down has lost its gel and therefore is “dehydrated”. When you have a dehydrated disc, several things can occur including: herniated discs, bulging discs, stenosis, and degenerated discs. You may also experience sciatica pain down the backs of your legs due to your condition.
Functional Disc Stabilization™ takes the pressure off of your vertebral discs through cycles of compression and traction movements. It literally allows your spine to replenish the missing fluids back into your discs naturally. Physical therapy is used in conjunction with this back pain treatment to strengthen and stabilize your spine. To validate this new, natural treatment for back pain, Dr. Jeff Winternheimer, D.C. conducted a pain study in 2007 with a PAC 10 university researcher. The results of the pain study were astounding.
