Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, non-chiropractic therapy, which creates a pain free high weighted targeted distraction to gradually reduce the pressure on delicate nerves caused by herniated or degenerated discs.
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs.
Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and degeneration of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal.
Traditional treatments include surgery or chiropractic adjustment. Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative FDA cleared treatment option with positive results in the clinical setting.
Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides a gentle reduction of pressure on the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the spine. A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. The computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which can lessen pressure on the disc or retract the protruding disc.
Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute increments. Over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, potentially heal and improve the flow of nutrients into the disc.
Patients are prescribed core exercises to further assist them in their recovery.
I incorporated the use of spinal decompression in January of 2000. My experience helps me to choose patients that are best suited for this form of care. Our approach also uses other advanced manual methods to stabilize and strengthen dysfunctional muscle patterns. Our treatments are safe and we usually know in less than 4 weeks if the treatment is going to work for you.
