Spinal Decompression

Who Else Wants to Ends Their Serious Back or Neck Pain?

If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain in your lower back, legs or neck and shoulders, you know how frustrating it can be to get the help you need to end your pain and suffering.

Many patients are told that their only treatment option is surgery, which can be even more painful, expensive, and it may not even work. The good news is that we offer a great alternative to back surgery—Spinal Decompression!

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a traction-based, non-surgical alternative for relief from serious back or neck pain or pain from herniated, bulging or slipped discs. Decompression therapy is performed on a specifically designed table in either a face up or face down position. A computer controlled traction device gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints, and muscular tissues, while also enhancing the body’s natural healing process. You will be so comfortably positioned and relaxed as you receive accurate and focused treatment that you may even fall asleep!

The gentle stretching and relaxing of the spine fosters a phenomenon called “imbibition,” the way a disc gets nutrition through daily motions and body positions. In healthy discs, this occurs naturally, but in the case of damaged and degenerative disc conditions, the discs’ nutrition intake is compromised.

There is a lot of excitement among patients, their families and physicians because of the great results people are getting with Spinal Decompression Therapy. The treatment promotes nutrition intake into the discs, re-establishes and stabilizes the structural support, and supports the muscular system.

Although many patients report a dramatic reduction of their pain within as few as five treatments, an injured spinal disc needs time to heal. This is why we urge you to be regular with your prescribed treatments and clinic visits. We use Spinal Decompression Therapy as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes not only decompression, but a customized nutrition plan and recommended movement exercises as well.

Spinal Decompression Comprehensive Treatment Plan

First, you will receive Spinal Decompression Therapy treatment in-office. Your discs are predominate sites of pain due to the pressure on your nerves, so treating them as directly as possible makes sense. The blending of focused traction to the site, rehabilitation to the supporting structures, and overall strengthening of global musculature makes this treatment effective. Heat, muscle stimulation, Ultrasound, and cold laser therapy can offer an additional benefit for inflammation and spasm reduction. Our hope is not only to help heal the disc but enhance muscle control and support of the low back.

As part of your treatment plan, our office will prescribe a series of rehabilitative, simple, and pain-free exercises in order to more fully heal your discs, and keep the pain from returning. We can’t over emphasize the importance of at-home exercises. Performing these exercises regularly and consistently is crucial for long-term relief. A gradual breakdown of the foundational support of your back is what put undue stresses on the discs and led to your pain and loss of function. Strengthening the muscles that support the spine and regaining endurance in them is vital for spinal health.

Finally, we will provide a nutritional plan for eating and supplementation to further treat your pain. Most low back pain sufferers have decreased spine flexibility, poor muscle control, and they consume a poor diet (primarily foods that increase inflammation). These compounding problems have greatly contributed to disc injury and limited natural healing abilities. Our program will teach you to think of your food as medicine and to know which foods will help and which will hinder in regards to back pain and inflammation.

Will my pain go away for good?

Most patients do find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments. However, when it comes to serious back or neck issues, pain is the last thing to show up and the first thing to go away. What you should take from this is that your treatment plan is not over when the pain is gone. As you become more mobile and more able to return to your normal lifestyle, improving upon that lifestyle is what your spine needs most. Movement is life, and your spine depends on muscle activity to support your spine, and create fluid movement to and from the discs. Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our clinic will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence.

How much will it cost?

Our office visits vary as to the extent of care needed (decompression, adjustments, cold laser therapy, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, massage, etc.). However, we promise to only do those procedures necessary for your fullest recovery. You always have the choice as to the extent of care. Our staff will review all costs, payment options and insurance coverage upfront. We want to help, and believe finances shouldn’t stand in the way of you and good health.

We’re so sure we can help you with your pain with affordable solutions that we have a special offer for those who suffer with serious back and neck pain and pain related to a herniated or bulging disc.
