What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a revolutionary non-surgical medical breakthrough treatment for chronic neck and low back pain caused by:
How Effective Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
According to Dr. John Leslie, MD of the mayo clinic Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is 88.9% effective. This based on a multi-center, phase II, non-randomized pilot study. Patients in the study suffered chronic back pain an average of 10 years and after two weeks of treatments there as a 50% reduction in pain scores and after completing the entire six week protocol Dr. Leslies, MD documented and overall success rate of 88.9%
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Over time due to a variety of different lifestyle stressors pressures inside the disc eventually cause the disc to bulge out and press painfully on nerve roots. Once this compression occurs and the nerve root is irritated the inflammatory environment is unsuitable for healing.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression produces negative pressures within the disc through a series of specific automated pumping mechanisms. This negative pressure creates a vacuum effect that takes pressure off the nerve by drawing back in the bulging or protruded disc.
Experts also believe that during non-surgical spinal decompression oxygen, nutrients, and other fluids are drawn to the disc itself stimulating the body’s natural repair mechanism. Our decompression program also includes the use of a class 4 higher power deep tissue laser application to the area. This further stimulates the body’s ability to heal by increasing the cellular energy output allowing cells to regenerate faster.
What are the Treatments Like?
Patients at our clinic will experience a protocol of about 20-25 sessions over a period of 8-12 weeks. There are specific laser and physical therapy techniques that will be administered before and after each decompression session. It is not uncommon for patients to experience improvement in their symptoms after just a few treatments.
Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Safe?
Yes, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is completely safe for patients that qualify for the treatment. However not everyone suffering from these conditions will qualify.
How Do I Qualify?
While Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is 88.9% effective for qualified individuals. Our current acceptance rate is only about 6 in 10. That mean for every 10 people we evaluate only 6 are accepted as qualified candidate for the program. There are a variety of reasons for this which is why a comprehensive medical evaluation is necessary to accurate make that decision.
To determine if you qualify you will complete a comprehensive medical and physical examination. Our specialists will use a combination of diagnostic imaging and function outcome assessments including but not limited to functional digital x-rays, MRI studies, CT studies, functional capacity evaluations, disability scoring protocols, and any other evidenced based procedures required by our physicians.
Only after our medical team has completed your history and examination and review all supporting imaging and documentation, we will determine if you qualify or not.
