Intervertebral disc pathology is one of the primary causes of back and neck pain. The discs are prone to degeneration and injury as they are compressed and twisted through daily activities.
As the disc degenerates, the gel-like nucleus loses its hydration, reducing disc height and creating the possibility of facet syndrome and lateral foraminal stenosis. Furthermore, disc degeneration causes the pliable outer coating of the anulus to become brittle and susceptible to cracks and tears that can lead to disc herniations. Bulging or herniated discs often press on spinal nerves, causing severe pain and radiculopathy.
Damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal because they remain under constant pressure, even while a person is at rest. It is widely accepted that the ideal environment to improve disc pathology is to decompress, or reduce the intradiscal pressures of the damaged disc.
The goal of reducing intradiscal pressure is to enhance the osmotic diffusion of fluids and nutrients across the endplates into the disc, furthering the body’s natural healing abilities. Additionally, reduction of intradiscal pressures may help draw the nucleus pulposus of a herniated disc back into the center, thereby relieving pressure on a compressed nerve root—alleviating the problem and the pain.

"I injured my low back causing severe low back pain and radiating pain down my right leg. After having an MRI, I was diagnosed with a lumbar herniated disc. The pain was like someone stabbing a knife in my back and down my leg. I had no quality of life and pain medication did not help. Epidural injections only gave me a little relief for one week. My medical doctor said I was facing surgery on my back. Someone recommended that I consult with Dr. Alukonis to see if spinal decompression could help. After he did a very thorough examination and looked over my MRI, Dr. Alukonis determined that i was a very good candidate for spinal decompression. After a few weeks of treatment I was painfree and enjoying my life again" - Gail M. of Cocoa Beach, Fl
