According to the latest clinical research studies, you have an 85% chance of AVOIDING surgery with Spinal Decompression Therapy. Spinal surgery should NEVER be the first option. Conservative treatment methods should be explored before surgery is considered.
You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, Decompression therapy may be for you.
This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.
The gentle distractive forces of the Decompression therapy creates a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
Therapy sessions typically last less than 15-30 minutes, 2-3 times a week, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released after 20-30 treatments.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of Decompression therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
After you have recovered, regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help maintain your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence.
