How a Disc Gets Damaged? How NSD Therapy® Fix and Repairs it without Surgery?
Spinal discs are resilient structures that are designed to last. Unfortunately, for most of us, spinal disc damage occurs early. Spinal disc damage can occur as early as adolescence, the twenties or thirties. By learning how a disc gets damaged, you may be able to avoid further progression. But, most importantly learning how a disc gets damaged can help you identify the best center suited to helping your non-surgical recovery. Today the most common age presenting with spinal disc damage is in their twenties.
Disc Gets Damaged in Prolonged Sitting
Sitting is said to be just as harmful as smoking. When it comes to disc damage, prolonged sitting is the number one cause. Our modern lifestyles are placing enormous stresses on our joints, spine, and discs. These stresses have a cumulative effect and in the long-term is said to be the main culprit for the rise in spinal disc damage.
Prolonged sitting (Axial Loading) is the leading cause of disc damage. The damage sustained from axial loading is the result of increased intradiscal pressures. The average intradiscal pressure is said to be approximately 70mmgh. During axial loading (sitting) the pressure increases and with the rise of pressure nutrients are leached out. In addition to the leaching of discal nutrients, the increased intradiscal pressure will stop and prevent the flow of nutrients (blood) into a disc.
The combined effects of leaching of nutrient and stoppage of blood flow are taxing on a spinal disc, which results in disc dehydration and malnutrition. Spinal discs must receive an abundant supply of blood to sustain balance and produce the needed compounds for the daily repairs and maintenance. Once the flow of nutrients is interrupted resulting in inefficient repair or maintenance.
A Damaged Disc Results in Decreased Disc Dehydration
Disc dehydration and disc malnutrition lead to degenerative disc disease. A degenerated disc is a damaged disc whose fibers are unable to perform tasks assigned. A degenerated disc is the most common cause of herniated or prolapsed disc (slipped disc or slip disc). NSD Therapy® was created to help increase the flow of nutrients into a spinal disc. Even a degenerated disc will be able to sustain the needed nutrients through NSD Therapy®. Go here to learn more about the effectiveness of NSD Therapy®.
If you suffer from a degenerated disc disease, bulging disc, herniated disc or sciatica contact us today. We have helped thousands of spine patients recover without surgery. NSD Therapy® will also assist in decreasing the intradiscal pressure. The combined effects of increased nutrients and reducing the intradiscal pressure are the reasons why NSD Therapy® is said to be the most advanced spinal therapy program to date. NSD therpay® also provides the best spinal decompression. Hope the information on How a Disc Gets Damaged was sufficient, please contact us with your questions or concerns.
