Chest and the Hips

Sep 13th 2013 at 12:49 AM

The patient is secured by the chest and hips by belts that connect to equipment.

After the calculated weight and the number of steps in which the procedure is performed, the movements are programmed tension, compression and relaxation of the column, defining a minimum load and another maximum.

Everything not to harm the muscles of the region

"The movements mimic those made at the table on a day-to-day," said Montenegro. And they are promoting a gap between one vertebras to another.

Thus, the nerve passing through the column is not compressed. In other words, there is no pain. "When the disc is pressed by the vertebrae, decreases the amount of oxygen it receives and increases the concentration of hydrogen," says physiotherapist.

"This causes the pH of the region to become acid, favoring the irritation and pain," he adds. Once you take action, the table helps to preserve this space and allows the disc to remain more hydrated and therefore healthy.

The other item that will help combat the hernias and the like is the dynamic decompression table, which also relies on movement in the joints.

"Just like the other, it aims to increase the space," says Montenegro. The difference is that the expert uses it when the patient already feels less bothered with the disk problem - usually it is used after the individual go through a traction machine.
