Spinal Decompression

If you suffer from back pain, you’re not alone. According to the American Chiropractic Association, one-half of the working American population admits to experiencing symptoms of back pain each year. Spinal Decompression, a non-invasive, non surgical therapy, has shown great success in relieving back pain.

Spinal Decompression is accomplished by comfortably applying distraction tension and relaxation among spinal discs, and the use of proper positioning of the spine. As a result, a vacuum effect occurs within the spinal discs, pulling back disc material that has extended beyond its normal confines. Patients can lay back and relax while the injured discs are gently decompressed to restore adequate blood flow and stimulate the healing process.

Spinal Decompression Therapy offers:

  • Lower cost compared to surgery
  • Non-invasive procedure
  • No lengthy recovery time as with surgery

How Do I Know if Spinal Decompression Therapy Will Help Me?

As with any therapy and even surgical procedure, nothing is a sure thing. However, the overwhelming research supporting the positive effects of Spinal Decompression Therapy insists the procedure is an effective one for many pain sufferers.

Compared to surgery, Spinal Decompression Therapy is an inexpensive, non-invasive alternative that has shown to be successful in multiple clinical studies.

Am I a Candidate to Integrate This Therapy into My Overall Health Needs?

Decompression Therapy, supported by additional therapies provided by Lake Country Health Center such as chiropractic, massage, and nutrition and rehabilitative exercises, have been an effective treatment for many patients suffering from low back pain, neck pain or carpal tunnel. Undergoing an expensive, invasive surgical operation is no longer the only option.

Nobody wants to be in pain. We want to help you find the best solution to reducing your pain and getting your life back.

Spinal Decompression Therapy could be a successful solution for those suffering from:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc
  • Facet syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Spinal stenosis

What Research Surrounds the Procedure?

In a recent clinical study of 778 patients, Disc Decompression Therapy was shown to be more than 70% successful in the treatment of herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome and sciatica (Grose, Naguszewski, and Naguszewski, 1998). In the same study 92% of patients had a reduction in their pain of at least one point on the 0 to 5 scale.

Another clinical study of 219 patients suffering from herniated disc and degenerative disc diseases found non-surgical Spinal Decompression to be a successful treatment as defined by pain reduction, reduction in use of pain medications, normalization of range of motion, reflex and gait, and recovery of sensory or motion loss (Gionis and Grotke, 2003).

Such positive clinical data supporting Decompression Therapy makes this inexpensive treatment an obvious next-step on the path to becoming pain free.
