Another treatment technique we use here at Springs Chiropractic is spinal decompression.
Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical new technique for treating herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica and protruding discs. It is fast, effective, drug-free, safe and cleared by the FDA. Many patients have avoided surgery and reclaimed an active lifestyle with Spinal Decompression treatment as part of their chiropractic care.
The basic concept of this type of treatment is the axial traction forces generated and controlled by a computer program to relieve the pressure of a herniated disc or sciatica. The computer program is designed to pull pressure away from the discs (decompression) for two steps and then push back for one step. This is so that the body does not feel the need to contract the muscles on its own. Over time the doctor can increase the amount of force used to effectively treat the problem.
There is little to no pain associated with spinal decompression and often times it feels good to the patient. The pressure is taken off of the nerve root during this non-invasive treatment, allowing for instant relief during treatment. A number of people are not aware of such treatment options before moving forward with surgery. Less invasive treatment options such as spinal decompression often provide enough relief for patients that they may be able to avoid surgery.
