Spinal decompression is the fastest way to not only relieve disc herniations, disc bulges, protrusions and disc injuries, but it also helps to aid in the healing and recovery of injured ligaments and tissues. We combine the use of cutting edge treatments with a multi-disciplined approach of pain management, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and spinal rehabilitation to not only treat disc injuries but to help regenerate and heal injured discs and tissues.
Currently, there are 4 ways to address disc injuries:
•Nerve Blocks or Epidural Injections
•Powerful Pain Medication
Spinal Decompression Therapy, approved by the FDA in 2001 for disc injuries, is not only the least invasive form of treatment for disc injuries but it is the most cost-effective treatment for herniated and degenerative spinal discs, and spinal stenosis; one of the major causes of back pain and neck pain. Spinal decompression works on the affected spinal segment by significantly reducing intradiscal pressure and creating a vacuum affect on the herniated tissue. This natural vacuum retracts the extruded disc material and thus takes the pressure off the pinched nerve and reduces inflammation as well. In addition, the vacuum effect will many times additionally increase the spacing between the vertebra as the involved discs are rehydrated, allowing even more room for the nerve. Then as the disc rehydrates its shock absorbing capabilities are restored reducing mechanical stress on the related structures (facet joints and supporting ligamentous tissues) slowing or halting the osteoarthritic damage. This is the best non-surgical and conservative procedure for patients suffering with bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica, failed back surgery syndrome, and non-specified mechanical low back or neck pain resulting in spinal stenosis.
