Spinal Decompression and You

Do you suffer with low back pain, Sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, or Scoliosis?  If so, you may want to look into the benefits of Spinal Decompression.  Our office uses the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System.  This system is specifically designed to provide pain relief for decompressive and degenerative injuries of the spine; through the application of forces along a treatment curve to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract.  

Who Are the Best Candidates for Treatment?

Anybody who has back pain associated with a damaged disc may be helped by Spinal Decompression therapy.  The following conditions are recommended for use of this therapy: herniated, protruding, ruptured, or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, or radiculopathy (pinched nerves) and other neurological conditions.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

Each treatment session lasts for approximately 30 minutes, with patient relaxing comfortably on a heavily padded bed.  After being secured into position by an upper body and lower body harness, you can completely relax by watching a DVD, listening to music, or simply taking a nap.  Each session is divided into 18-phases, which alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level.  Some patients may experience light side effects with this type of therapy.  Mild muscular soreness during or after treatment may occur.  The sensation would be similar to what a person may experience at the start of  a new exercise regimen.  Most patients find this therapy quite comfortable and relaxing.  During an average 30-45 minute treatment, most patient patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar spine and tend to fall asleep.
