If you are suffering from the above symptoms gentle spinal decompression may be the answer for you. This non-surgical procedure can provide lower back and neck pain relief as well as relief for; sciatica pain, bulging discs, herniated discs, and degenerative discs.
The gentle distraction forces of Spinal Decompression create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning. This can help to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month. Most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments, and are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization ligaments, tendons and muscles is a vital part of Spinal Decompression. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, 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.
Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health, and reduce the probability of re-occurrence. Clinical results of this procedure have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated, and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments.
