Do artificial cervical discs work?

Have you ever wondered about artificial cervical discs and whether they could be beneficial for you? The natural cervical disc is an engineering marvel, capable of withstanding significant pressure while allowing for a wide range of motion in the neck.

Replicating the intricate design and function of the natural disc with an artificial counterpart presents considerable challenges. However, artificial cervical discs have emerged as a viable surgical option for addressing cervical disc issues, showing promising results thus far.

It's important to understand that the relief provided by cervical disc replacement surgery primarily stems from alleviating nerve root inflammation and spinal cord compression. Consequently, this type of surgery isn't typically recommended for patients experiencing symptoms solely localized to the neck.

For those seeking an alternative approach, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy offers a compelling option. This therapy employs advanced computerized devices to apply targeted traction to the neck, reducing pressure within the discs. By alleviating nerve root inflammation and spinal cord compression, spinal decompression therapy effectively eliminates associated symptoms.

At Triangle Spinal Decompression in Cary, NC, we offer safe, effective, and affordable treatments for neck and arm pain stemming from slipped, bulging, or herniated discs. Our approach prioritizes avoiding the risks associated with surgery and prescription drugs, providing patients with a non-invasive solution to their discomfort.
