Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Overview
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for:
- Herniated or bulging disc(s)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet syndrome
- Post-surgical patients
- Spinal Stenosis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Neck and Low Back Conditions
- General Back and Neck Pain
Do you have LOW BACK PAIN or NECK PAIN, a herniated disc(s), degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, carpal tunnel disease or any other type of spinal problem? Is your doctor suggesting surgery, drugs, pain management, or extensive physiotherapy? Come to the Southwest Spine Center and try our non-surgical spinal decompression treatment. Like many of our patients who have experienced AMAZING RESULTS.
Research indicates the disc is responsible for a significant number of Lumbar/Leg pain and neck/arm pain syndromes. Compression increases intradiscal pressure leading to annular compromise and possible extrusion of nuclear material.
Spinal decompression therapy in conjunction with additional modalities effectively relieves the pain and disability resulting from disc injury and degeneration, by repairing damaged discs and reversing dystrophic changes in nerves. Spinal decompression addresses the functional and mechanical aspects of discogenic pain and disease through non-surgical decompression of lumbar intervertebral discs. Studies verify the significant reduction of intradiscal pressures into the negative range, to approximately minus 150 mm/HG, which result in the non-surgical decompression of the disc and nerve root. Conventional traction has never demonstrated a reduction of intradiscal pressure to negative ranges; on the contrary – many traction devices actually increased intradiscal pressure, most likely due to reflex muscle spasm. The spinal decompression table is designed to apply distraction tension to the patient’s lumbar spine without eliciting reflex paravertebral muscle contractions.
By significantly reducing intradiscal pressure, spinal decompression promotes retraction of the herniation into the disc and facilitates influx of oxygen, proline and other substrates. The promotion of fibro elastic activity stimulates repair and inhibits leakage of irritant sulphates and carboxylates from the nucleus. The most recent trial sought to correlate clinical success with MRI evidence of disc repair in the annulus, nucleus, facetjoint and foramina as a result of treatment and found that reduction of disc herniation ranged between 10% and 90% depending on the number of sessions performed, while annulus patching and healing was evident in all cases.
