Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
From the same engineers who designed the DRX 9000 16 years ago, comes the newest most sophisticated decompression table on the market. It is our goal to detect your condition, educate you on all of your treatment options and correct the CAUSE of your underlying pain.
If you have chronic low back or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc, you may be a candidate for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. Our Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression treatments are proven effective in treating some of the following conditions: Herniated disc(s), Bulging disc(s), Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, , Sciatica or even Failed Back surgery. Consultations for existing and/or new patients that are interested in receiving Non-Surgical spinal decompression can be scheduled with our office at any time.
The type of treatment prescribed for neck or back pain will usually be dictated by your doctors diagnosis and assessment of the underlying cause of pain. Diagnosing back pain and choosing a treatment method is determined by reviewing the patient's medical history, performing a physical examination and prescribing diagnostics tests. Your health care provider may want to review a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) and any CT scans of your spine to assess the cause of your neck or back pain. It is difficult to create an effective treatment regimen without first identifying the underlying cause of the pain. Once we determine the cause during your consultation, we will determine if receiving Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is effective for you and your specific condition.
Traditional treatment methods for these types of conditions result in bed rest, physical therapy, medications or most commonly surgery. The good news, is that due to technological advancements, there is another treatment option for you. A treatment that is proven safe and effective in targeting and relieving the source of your pain, non-invasively, without the use of medications .
Who are the best candidates for Treatment?
Patients that may benefit most from the therapy may be those with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatia, degenerative disc disease, stenosis or facet syndrome
How does spinal Decompression work?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression works by specifically targeting and stretching one disc of the spine, ultimately changing the force and the position of the spinal column. This change takes pressure off of the spinal discs, which are the gel like cushion between the bones in your spine. By creating negative pressure within the discs; bulging or herniated disks can retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, relieves pain and helps promote movement of water, oxygen and nutrient –rich fluids into the disks so they can heal, retracting the damaged disc.
What can I expect during treatment?
Each treatment is customized to your specific individual needs. Sessions typically last around 40 minutes. For 28 minutes, the patient relaxes comfortably on a heavily padded bed. The treatment is comfortable and relaxing for most patients. Our patients typically relax by watching a DVD, listening to music or simply taking a nap. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a very gentle procedure in which during your treatment you will feel a sensation similar to a light stretch. Each treatment is segmented into 18 cycles where spinal decompressive forces alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level.
What can I expect during the course of therapy ?
Some patients may experience light side effects with this type of therapy. Mild muscular soreness during or after treatment may occur. The sensation would be a similar to; what a person might experience at the onset of a new exercise regimen. Most patients find the therapy to be quite comfortable and relaxing. Exercise and/or the use of a lumbar support belt may also be recommended to support the benefits of spinal decompression and improve patient compliance.
