We offer the latest cutting-edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA-cleared spinal decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:
- Herniated Discs
- Bulging Discs
- Pinched Nerve
- Sciatica (leg pain)
- Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
- Spinal Stenosis
- Post-Surgical Pain
In the past, those suffering from disc problems were usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing, they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option…until now.
Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, non-surgical decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Non-Surgical Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.
Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Really Work?
Data from a recent multicenter pilot study utilizing non-surgical decompression reveals a dramatic success rate of 88.9%! The study, authored by Dr. John Leslie of the Mayo Clinic, was designed to evaluate back pain. After two weeks of treatments, there was a 50% reduction in pain scores and upon completion of the entire six-week protocol, an amazing success rate of 88.9% was documented.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Non-surgical decompression uses state-of-the-art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with linear traction, slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.
What are the Treatments like?
At the beginning of each session, you’ll be comfortably fitted with a harness designed to achieve optimal decompression of the low back or neck. During a session of spinal decompression you will notice a slow lengthening of your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure. The treatment process is safe and relaxing. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits. A patient safety switch provides an extra safety feature, allowing you to stop at any point should you feel discomfort. Each treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Individual patient results may vary.
What is a Typical Treatment Protocol?
A typical spinal decompression treatment protocol consists of about 12-20 sessions over four to six weeks. Some conditions require fewer visits; some require more. Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of prescribed treatment program.
