When Negative Is a Positive Much like gauging the air pressure in a car tire, scientists can use sensors to measure the various pressure put on spinal discs while lifting, standing, sitting, lying down, undergoing traction, and undergoing NSSD. Like other pressures found in the body such as blood pressure, intradiscal pressure is measured [...]
High intradiscal pressures cause discs to bulge out and press painfully on nerve roots. They also make for a compressed, anaerobic environment unsuitable for healing. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) produces negative pressure within the disc, which experts believe create a vacuum effect that draws in nutrients and fluids to promote the repair of injured [...]
