Treat Your Back and Neck Pain
with Spinal Decompression Therapy
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression using our state of the art equipment delivers spinal decompression in a safe, comfortable manner. Spinal decompression therapy can be used to treat disc bulge and herniation, disc degeneration, sciatica, spinal stenosis, arthritis, facet syndrome, and chronic pain in the low back or neck. Proper patient screening is imperative and only the best candidates are accepted for care.
Spinal decompression is FDA cleared, non-surgical, and has been shown to do the following:
Relieve the pain associated with disc degeneration, herniated discs, facet syndrome, and sciatica.
Decrease pressure inside spinal discs, encouraging increased protein synthesis and healing
A Spinal Decompression Session
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which reduces the pressure inside the lumbar or cervical spinal discs. A therapist asists you to lie down on the table on your back or stomach – whatever position is comfortable for you.
After you are put in a comfortable position, a soft brace is placed around your low back and upper back. It’s like wearing a comfortable corset. (It is safe for women who have had breast surgeries.) The spine and muscles are slowly stretched. This takes the pressure off of the sciatic nerve and discs of the low back or neck. The stretching provided by the table is actually a gentle opening and closing of the disc space of a specific area of the spine (as determined by the doctor). The stretching is followed by of relaxation.
The alternating patterns of of decompression and 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.
A common misconception often cited is that 90% of back pain will go away on its own without treatment. Studies have shown that the proportion of patients who still experience pain after 12 months is an average of 62%, dispelling the popular notion that up to 90% of low back pain episodes resolve spontaneously within 1 month.
There is also a large number of Americans who, after trying many standard treatments, are still left suffering with serious back pain. Some patients have been told by friends and family to learn to live with the pain, or try exercises, drugs, and/or shots. If you are still suffering and are now being told you need surgery, then decompression therapy may be a good choice.
Spinal decompression is a great option because back surgery is so risky. Take a look at these statistics:
60% of all people who have back surgery are repeat candidates after only 2 years.
The success rate for a second back surgery is only 40%
If you require a third back surgery, there is only a 5% chance you will get relief.
