Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. Spinal decompression therapy can be a successful, non-surgical alternative treatment for relieving low back, neck pain, and radiating arm and leg pain. Spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for: Herniated or Bulging Discs. Sciatica.The table that is used has the ability to do flexion, extension, axial rotation, traction & decompression.
What is spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat Neck & lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs, or facet syndrome. Spinal Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.
History, Examination, Diagnosis, Referrals
On your first visit, we will review your records, obtain a thorough history and examination and make necessary referrals for diagnostic tests such as X-Rays, MRI, CT scan and referrals to specialists.
Spinal Decompression uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression & muscular tension often associated with low back pain and sciatica.
Procedures to be implemented prior to spinal Decompression to facilitate optimal spinal decompression results
Prior to each spinal decompression treatment, a hot pack is applied for approximately 20 minutes to relieve tension from the muscle in order to get a proper stretch in the spine.
Ultrasound, Diathermy, Soft Tissue and Muscular Procedures
Muscle tension and trigger points contribute to Spinal pain & symptoms. Trigger point therapy, Graston Technique, Myofascial release, Ultrasound, use of heated stones, and Chinese Cupping are used to release and remove tension held in muscles and the structure of the lower back, mid back & neck.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
This therapy has been shown to dramatically accelerate ATP (healing energy) production in the body (upwards of 500%) and has had a phenomenal effect in pain and inflammation reduction.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Acupuncture is an important tool in aiding in endorphin release, decreasing inflammation, boosting immune system response, increasing circulation, relieving pain, and muscle spasms. This modality is has been very helpful to decrease herniated disc symptoms, back pain, neck pain, headaches and pain associated with.
Whenever there is an injury, pain, degenerating or herniated discs, there are nutritional supplements that can aid in the acceleration of healing the injured tissue, decreasing inflammation, reducing scar tissue, and reducing pain. These nutrients are dependent upon the condition. The nutritional products that we use are pharmaceutical grade quality and are tested by an independent lab.
