Neck and back pain due to a herniated disc, bulging disc or degenerative disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called non-surgical spinal decompression.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom care and management plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer settings are perscribed by the doctor and supervised by one of our trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in motion, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This has been effective to reduce or eliminate back and neck pain and pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc may cause that pain to be reduce or eliminated.
Care and management time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have decompression sessions daily to a few times a week, depending on the severity of their case and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, degenerative disc or chronic pain we will work with you to find a spinal decompression care and management plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
