If you or a member of your family has struggled with debilitating back and neck pain, with little or no relief, then ask yourself the following questions.
- Are you currently dependant on medications on a daily basis?
- Are you limited in daily activities?
- Have you had repeated injections or epidurals with little or no relief?
- Are you considering surgery and are uncomfortable with that choice?
- Have all the options been presented to you?
- Have you already tried physical therapy?
- Have you been out or work due to pain?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is certainly a viable treatment option and could very well be what you're looking for.
The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.
The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.
For the low back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back or stomach on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well tolerated.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is very effective at treating bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes. Proper patient screening is imperative. Please contact our office for a consultation to determine whether you are a candidate for this safe and effective treatment option.
