Obviously pain in one’s neck, back, arm or leg may be caused by a multitude of possibilities. Often the cause is hard to isolate. Proper and thorough examination and evaluation are often needed to uncover the source of the problem.
If it is determined that the pain is discogenic, that is resulting from a problem with the disc, then spinal decompression therapy may very well be the best and most appropriate approach to fixing the problem and eliminating the problem, for good.
Damage to a spinal disc can create local inflammation or put pressure on surrounding nerves which likely causes the pain in the affected neck or back region, or even produce radiating pain to an arm or leg.
