Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating. Spinal decompression is a highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that utilizes a specially designed treatment table with a computer controlled traction head.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and alleviates the pain of herniated or bulging disc. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft fluid back into the disc. Decompression can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the irritation to the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight to twelve weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
