Spinal Stenosis is a type of degenerative disease where there is a loss of moisture in the disc primarily due to aging. The loss of moisture causes decreased elasticity or internal deformity of the disc. Once the internal disc (pulp) is weakened, it will eventually collapse since it can no longer withstand the body weight. The narrowing of the intervertebral space caused by this collapse is called spinal stenosis. Many cases of chronic herniation of the intervertebral disc can lead to the development of spinal stenosis.
The traction effect of the DDS Decompression Belt provides support to assist the weakened disc. Once the Brace is inflated with air, the air chamber columns create a support system using our Vertical Air Pressure Technology. The Brace can help those with spinal stenosis as well as chronic herniation of the intervertebral disc by decreasing the axial loading while increasing the intervertebral disc space.
