The three-dimensional decompression (elongation) of vertebrae represents the “high tech” version of traction or elongation.
The elongation is a method that does not need surgery and it is a process by which it is created a vacuum effect or negative pressure inside the disks.
This vacuum helps the disks to hydrate, creating the curing environment. Also, vertebral decompression (elongation) determines the increase of height of intervertebral space.
Another mechanism used is the elongation of ligaments of vertebral column determining the deblocking of disk-vertebral segments and creation of a space for the increase of disk in volume.
