What Are Herniated Disks?

If you’re like many people with a herniated disk, back or neck pain, tingling or numbness, muscle spasms or weakness might make up most of your day.

This cndition arises because of a problem with one of the disks between the vertebrae in your spine. When gel-like material in the center of the disk escapes through a crack in the exterior, the result is a herniated disk.

The most common reason this happens is age-related disk degeneration. However, excess weight and heavy-duty physical activity like repetitive lifting or bending are also culprits.

Since emergency surgery might be required if symptoms persist long enough, it’s important to get prompt treatment for herniated disks. Triton Decompression Treatment is an effective way to alleviate the problem.

This FDA-approved treatment has a high success rate. Triton DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical option. It relieves leg, neck or arm pain by positioning a herniated disk under negative pressure. The resulting vacuum effect pulls the contents back into the disk while stimulating the blood supply necessary for optimal healing.

Most of the time, Triton treatments are painless. Contact Rite Medical Urgent Care today to find out if Triton DTS is right for you and take the first step toward becoming pain-free again.
