Our spinal decompression system is comprised of truly state of the art equipment that delivers spinal decompression in a safe, comfortable manner. Spinal decompression therapy can be used to treat disc bulges and herniations, disc degeneration, sciatica, spinal stenosis, arthritis, facet syndrome, and chronic pain in the low back or neck. Spinal decompression is FDA cleared, non-surgical, and has been shown to do the following:
Spinal decompression is often an excellent option for those who seek effective treatment for spine pain (back or neck). Often those who have spinal surgery are repeat candidates after only 2 years and the success rate for a second surgery is much lower. Prolonged use of medication has been shown to have many harmful side effects including fatigue, nausea, kidney and liver failure and even addiction. Perhaps the most harmful and insidious side effect of taking pain medication is temporarily numbing the perception of an underlying problem is that progressively worsening.
State of the Art Equipment and More
Since 2005, we have successfully helped many patients in our office using spinal decompression equipment like the DRX 9000, Saunders 3D Active Trac and the advanced Kennedy Decompression Tables. Our spinal decompression program, however, goes far beyond the equipment we use. We have studied (and continue to train) with some of the foremost experts on spinal decompression treatment in the country. Moreover, we incorporate advanced spinal rehabilitation procedures which enhance the results of spinal decompression.
How does Spinal Decompression Therapy work?
Spinal decompression therapy (SDT) is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which reduces the pressure inside the lumbar or cervical spinal discs. A therapist will gently help you lie down on the table. You can lie on your back or stomach – whatever position is more comfortable for you and better for your condition. After you are put in a comfortable position, a soft brace is placed on your low back and upper back. (Spinal decompression is safe for women who have had breast surgeries.) The spine and paraspinal muscles are then slowly stretched. This takes the pressure off the sciatic nerve and discs of the low back or neck. The stretching provided by the table gently opens and closes the disc space of a specific area of the spine (as determined by the doctor and patient condition). When the table opens, it creates a vacuum inside the disc. This where true decompression occurs. You can compare a disc herniation to a jelly doughnut where the jelly is pressing out of the side.
The vacuum inside the disc created by the decompression table can pull part of the jelly back towards the center of the doughnut/disc. This takes pressure off the aggravated nerves, relieving pain and helping your body feel and function normally again. During decompression, more oxygen and nutrients are pulled inside the disc. Studies show that during decompression, more protein synthesis occurs inside the disc. This means more disc repair and healing are happening.
