Non-surgical spinal decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a treatment developed for chronic low back pain and leg pain (sciatica). It is safe and effective without many of the risks of injections, surgery and anesthesia.
Chronic pain is one of the most debilitating health conditions. Studies show that back pain is often recurrent and even if the original symptoms improve, many people continue to have episodes periodically. Many low back pain sufferers visit doctors frequently and live a life of restriction and limited daily activities.
Decompression treatment is designed to relieve pressure on the structures that commonly cause back pain and sciatica. It can relieve the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and sciatica.
Can Spinal Decompression Work for You?
Spinal Decompression treatment provides relief for patients suffering from the common causes of low back pain and sciatica. Clinical studies have shown it to be successful in a high percentage of people with herniated and degenerative discs. Many patients experience relief of pain and other symptoms during individual treatment sessions and then a gradual reduction of symptoms as their treatment program progresses.
Patients with certain conditions such as bone fractures, tumors, and advanced osteoporosis are not candidates for this treatment. On the other hand, patients who have had back surgery and continue to have pain (failed back surgery syndrome) can be treated.
Why is Spinal Decompression Effective?
Spinal Decompression therapy relieves pain by reducing the pressure inside the disc, allowing it to settle back into place, while moving the disc away from the painful nerves. This provides a method of repairing the disc and allowing the back to heal itself without any invasive surgery.
What are Treatments Like?
Patients describe thetreatment as gentle, painless and quite comfortable. Many say they actually fall asleep during treatment sessions. Treatments are administered with patients fully clothed, although two piece clothing that separates at the waist is recommended for comfort.The treatment program usually consists of 20 daily sessions lasting 40 minutes each. The doctor will determine your course of treatment and whether or not you are a candidate for the program.
Why Choose Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Many patients are frustrated, having tried numerous treatment choices offered for chronic pain, such as drug therapy, physical therapy, manipulation, epidural injections, traditional surgery, laser surgery, disc coagulation and other invasive surgeries. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression offers a safe, cost effective, non-invasive technology to treat chronic low back pain and associated neurological symptoms and it works well in a treatment program incorporating other treatment modalities as listed above.
