The Vertical Distraction Pump (VDP) uses motion, flexion-distraction, which helps the disc bulge/herniation to retract, taking pressure off of the surrounding spinal soft tissues/nerves, and reducing the pain level.
The doctor uses information obtained from your examination/x-rays/MRI to determine which disc is causing the most trouble. Ice will be placed over the disc level to be worked on for 15 minutes. After that, the actual procedure is relatively quick, usually within 5 minutes! Call us today to learn how Dr. Noomie and her team of qualified health professionals can help you at (248) 524-9100.
The vertebral distraction pump (V.D.P.) works on the two main causes of spinal pain and their origin. Research has shown that spinal pain comes from two main causes: The facet joint or the annular fibers of the disc. The V.D.P. can open any jammed facets as well as open up the posterior elements of the vertebrae while keeping the anterior portion of the involved vertebrae stationary.
This can create a hydrostatic pressure change within the nucleus pulposis of the involved disc, which can draw the herniated portion of the disc back to its normal anatomical boundary. It can also be used on any joint where compressive forces are involved – i.e. rib head subluxations. It is also being used on major contracted muscles where it decreases the myospasm which can be affecting the spine, and the muscles it is associated with – i.e. gluteus maximus.
It is also quite useful with Seniors who may not have a great deal of pain, but have either lost flexibility or want to maintain what they have recovered.
It is a very safe and effective way to mobilize the spinal segments, potentially facilitating remodeling of fibrotic changes in the joints and improving imbibition in the IVD.
