THE SPINAL DISCS AND PAIN
More than 90% of chronic back and neck pain is caused by damage to the spinal discs. The spinal disc is a cushion that acts as a shock absorber between your spinal bones. When placed under torque the disc can squish out of shape, tear and put pressure directly on the spinal nerves. The largest spinal nerve is the Sciaticanerve, that runs into your buttocks and down your leg.
Over time if this pressure is not released it can damage the muscles and cause weakness, numbness, tingling and eventual problems walking and/ or using your bladder or sexual organs.Spinal nerve damage is a serious problem and one that needs to be treated before permanent damage occurs. Recently advances in spinal orthotics has shown much promise in solving spinal disc injury. The new Disc Disease Solutions Brace (DDS) provides the standard support of a traditional back brace but has the added benefit of decompressing the spinal discs. The process is simple, DDS acts to provide traction between the lower part of the ribcage and the upper part of the hip creating weight-bearing forces away from the lower back. By increasing the intervertebral disc space, pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved, thereby eliminating pain while assisting active rehabilitation. The vertically expandable columns create a virtual support beam providing spinal decompression for the lumbar vertebrae.
DDS 500 DECOMPRESSION BRACE
The DDS Spinal Decompression Brace will speed up your recovery and help you enjoy daily activities that were once too difficult. The DDS is thin, lightweight and can be worn discretely under clothing allowing you to preform daily activities such as driving, walking and standing for long periods of time. Active people can enjoy sports and other leisure activities pain free. The device is PDAC approved and covered under most insurance plans including Medicare for little to no out of pocket expense.
The DDS Spinal Decompression Brace provides a reduced pressure that can facilitate healing by reducing nerve compression and opening the disc space naturally without drugs or surgery. (actual before and after photo above). One of the biggest concerns about using orthotic bracing is that it can weaken spinal stabilizing muscles like the lumbar extensors. In studies conducted on the DDS 500 the lumbar spinal extensors muscle endurance actually increased over time with regular use. The brace is a dynamic system that does not allow for muscle atrophy or weakening.
