Previously, the only remaining option for patients who have not found neck and back pain relief through chiropractic treatments, pain medication, injections and rehabilitation exercise was to have spinal surgery. Thanks to an innovative new technique, patients are now able to seek and find relief without having to go under the knife.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is an effective method for those who do not wish to undergo surgery, and comes at a much less than cost than the average surgical procedure monetarily, and in potential health risks and side-effects.
It is a pain-free method and has no recovery period afterwards, allowing you to return to your daily life immediately after undergoing treatment.
The method used in this technique is to harness decompression through exact positioning of the spine combined with a non-surgical distraction. This is a viable, and valuable, alternative to surgery for those suffering from chronic neck or back pain.
What does Spinal Decompression Therapy do?
Spinal Decompression Therapy works by producing a negative pressure within and between the discs, and then maintaining this pressure to enable the damaged disc to decompress. This allows the disc to surround itself with spinal fluid once more, replenishing itself with the nutrients it had been lacking.
This method also creates a vacuum within the damaged area, serving to draw in more blood flow along with oxygen and nutrients for disc healing. In addition, nerve roots tend to get “unpinched” with the treatment.
How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different?
This therapy is not the same as the old traction table method, which only worked to stretch either a portion of the spine or the spine in its entirety. Instead, this therapy uses a computer-controlled table that is able to focus work only on the damaged area that requires treatment while leaving the remainder of the spine alone.
The therapy is completely safe and pain free for patients, and has been cleared by the FDA for use in the treatment of chronic low-back and neck pains. It is also a very effective treatment, as the therapy has proven itself reliable in numerous clinical trials. Patients undergo the treatment 2-3 times a week for 4-6 weeks, and the average treatment consists of 20 to 24 thirty-minute sessions.
