Compression, Decompression, & Herniation:

Bad Disc Before | Good Disc After

Etiology of Herniation

When the annulus fibrous is weakened by radial tears, the intradiscal pressure of the nucleus pulposus causes it to bulge, leading to protrusion and herniation. Over time, compression weakens the annulus, creating tears, inflammation, and possible protrusion of the nucleus. The increase of intradiscal pressure sets the stage for annular compromise, allowing extrusion of the nucleus through the tears herniation and possible irritation of the nerve roots.
Negative intradiscal pressure created by 'decompressive' traction therapy facilitates nutrition and diffusion into the spinal disc, thus improving healing. In some cases, actual 'retraction' of the protruded material may take place. However, often an improved healing response reducing inflammation is the source of pain relief.
