Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new technology
used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back. This
treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA
cleared equipment to apply distraction forces to Spinal Structures in a precise and graduated manner.
Distraction is offset by Cycles of Partial Relaxation. This Technique of Spinal Decompression Therapy, that is, unloading due to Distraction and Positioning, has shown the ability to “Gently” separate the Vertebrae from each other, creating a Vacuum inside the discs that we are
targeting. This "Vacuum Effect"
is also known as Negative Intra-Discal Pressure.
The Negative Pressure may induce the Retraction of the Herniated or Bulging Disc into the inside of the Disc, and off the Nerve
Root, the Cal-Sac, or both.
It happens “Only Microscopically” each time, but cumulatively, over 4 to 6
weeks, the Results are Quite Dramatic.
The Cycles of Decompression and Partial Relaxation, over a
series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich
fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These Nutrients enable the Torn and Degenerated Disc Fibers to begin to Heal.
For the Low Back, the Patient lies comfortably on his/her Back or Stomach on the Decompression
Table, with a set
of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower
chest. For the Neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair
of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many Patients
the Treatment, as it is usually “Quite Comfortable and Well Tolerated.”
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is “Very Effective” at Treating Bulging Discs, Herniated Discs, Pinched Nerves, Sciatica, Radiating Arm Pain, Degenerative Disc Disease, Leg Pain, and Facet Syndromes.
