Our office offers the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic low back, neck and sciatica pain. The FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the the treatment of: back pain, sciatica, herniated/and or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease/arthritis, spinal stenosis, relapse or failure following surgery. This treatment has been found to be highly effective in the reduction of pain for patients of all ages.
Not so long ago, patients suffering from disc/spinal problems weren’t given many options for treatment besides invasive spinal surgery, steroid injections, physical therapy. There were even few options for conservative management that showed great, lasting results, until now. A team of top physicians and medical engineers developed spinal decompression as a non-surgical solution to effectively treat low back and neck pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy, a traction based procedure, is one of the leading long-term treatment options for treating low back and cervical neck problems.
The discs of our spine essentially act as a shock absorber or cushion between each vertebrae. When a disc is overloaded whether from lifting something heavy, falling down, a motor vehicle accident, sports injury, etc. the disc can bulge out or become herniated putting direct pressure onto the spinal cord or the nerves coming out of the spinal cord. This can be extremely painful. When your disc(s) bulge, are herniated or simply wear out (degeneration), the disc can press or pinch against a sensitive nerve, this can result in pain.
Over time your body suffers from the wear and tear of daily activities as well as from gravity. This essentially can lead to the discs bulging, herniating or shrinking. In all cases, spinal decompression therapy is the go to, non-surgical treatment for these conditions. Spinal decompression creates a negative pressure in the spine, the disc material that has bulged, or herniated will centralize back towards the center of the disc taking pressure off of the nerves that were once being pinched by the disc material.
You may have seen on youtube what is called the “ring dinger” where the chiropractor abruptly and sharply pulls the patients head. Although that is a form of spinal traction, it may lead to more problems then it actually solves. That sudden sharp pulling on your spine and the spinal cord may result in muscle strains or ligament sprains of the spine due to the abruptness and sheer amount of force being used on the spine. The spinal decompression table we utilize is a slow, calculated, specific force applied to your spine so you do not have the risk of muscle or ligament sprain/strains. The decompression table can sense when your body tenses up which it then reduces the amount of pulling force as to avoid any damage.
If you or someone you know have been told that surgery is your only option to get pain free, please reach out to us or your local chiropractor to find out if you are a candidate for spinal decompression therapy.
