Functional Disc Stabilization

Some of the most common types of back pain we treat at the American Back Institute in Oxford AL are caused by herniated or bulging discs. For conditions affecting the spine and vertebrae, we offer an innovative chiropractic treatment. Functional Disc Stabilization is an effective therapy to help increase circulation in the spine. This aids in healing and provides all-natural back pain relief. Learn more about how we use FDS to treat back pain.

How Does Functional Disc Stabilization Work?

Functional Disc Stabilization is a noninvasive chiropractic technique that increases nutrients and blood flow through your spine. This helps replenish lost liquid or gel that naturally occurs in the vertebrae, resulting in a dehydrated disc. When the outer shell of a spinal disc is weakened, worn down, or cracked, this gel leaks out and leads to other health problems, such as herniated discs. Functional Disc Stabilization involves spinal decompression and traction to help rejuvenate the gel in the spine. It is highly effective based on medical research for improving spinal health.

Who can Benefit From Functional Disc Stabilization Therapy?

Functional Disc Stabilization is safe for all ages. Whether you are suffering from a sports injury, auto accident injury, or workplace injury due to poor ergonomics, this treatment can help alleviate back pain. It is drug-free and surgery-free and can be complete in our office here at the American Back Institute. If you want to avoid taking painkillers or need an effective and relatively quick back pain treatment FDS is an optimal solution.

Conditions Treated by Functional Disc Stabilization?

According to FDS research, if you are suffering from herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerated discs, this is likely caused by dehydration of the vertebrae. The use of Functional Disc Stabilization can aid in recovery from these painful back problems. Lumbar spinal stenosis, which is more common among older patients, is another lower back condition that can be treated. This is caused by narrowing spaces in the lumbar spine that puts more pressure on the spine and leads to pain. Using Functional Disc Stabilization our chiropractor is able to increase circulation of fluids and open up those spaces for lower back pain relief.
