Until you experience a back injury, you have no real understanding of how debilitating it is. Virtually every movement uses one of the back or adjoining muscles. Back pain sufferers experience numbness, weakness, and reduced functioning of the limbs. Back pain interferes with work, sleep, and relaxation as well. If your injury progresses to the point where the disc material moves into spaces occupied by nerves, you are facing back surgery…well until now that is. With the inception of spinal decompression equipment, patients now have a non-surgical option to relieve the nonstop pain they have been experiencing. The technology today appears to be a dream come true for those who suffer with compressed disks. Some may say that it is too good to be true, but research indicates that 92% patients report overall improvement; of these, 5% improved 25-50%; 17% improved 50-75%; 70% improved 75-100%.

Spinal decompression helps relieve pain by helping damaged discs heal and by alleviating pressure from nerves near the spine. If you have ever experienced a back injury or have chronic pain in your neck or back, you know how disruptive it can be to the quality of your everyday life. Chronic pain in your body takes up a huge amount of your daily internal energy just trying to fight off the constant pain. It's often the primary reason you feel tired and worn out by mid-afternoon.
Our office is dedicated to offering the latest, state-of-the-art, conservative treatment for spinal pain disorders. Our doctors are certified practioters in spinal decompression therapy, and exempilfy the highest standard of ethics and patient care. We chose an FDA-cleared decompression system that has the ability to treat both the neck and lower back, and it adjusts to comfortably position patients in the widest variety of treatment positions on the market.
Spinal decompression treatments are non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free. Spinal decompression is a traction-based outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back, and for associated conditions. Anyone who has neck, back, arm, or leg pain caused by a degenrated or damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression. Conditions treated include bulging,herniated, protruding, or extruded discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome, spondylosis, foraminal compression, previous or failed spinal surgery. Our office utilizes FDA-cleared equipment to gently traction the spine, thereby creating a negative pressure within the affected disc, allowing the disc to return to its proper location and function. By gently stretching the spine, over time, the damaged disc is guided back to stability. In addition to repositioning the disc, decompression promotes the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
Spinal decompression has saved many people from surgery. If you are considering surgery you may wish to first explore your less invasive options, such as spinal decompression therapy. The published evidence of the effectiveness and safety of spinal decompression therapy is growing and more people are spreading the word about their personal pain-free results. Spinal treatemtn such as decompression is becoming a factor in reducing spinal fusion surgery, herniated disc surgery, and neck disc surgery. One of the biggest positives of spinal decompression is being able to provide nerve pain relief to those who have suffered for so long. The positive results from this therapy are amazing. As more people are experiencing relief and full recovery using the technology available, this dream becomes a reality. If you have tried chiropractic manipulations, physical therapy, drugs, and do not want to assume the risks associated with back surgery, then spinal decompression may be your solution. We will perform and discuss with any prospective patient, a comprehensive health history and examination to determine appropriateness, any contraindications, and all treatment options. We invite you to our office to explore this beneficial option for your health.
