Neck and back pain are significant health and socioeconomic problems in our society affecting over 80% of North Americans. Symptoms are often recurrent and many people live with chronic pain. Disc degeneration, bulges and herniations are primary causes of neck or low back pain. Surgical intervention, often with fusion, is frequently suggested, but the end result can be reduced mobility, stiffness and continuing pain.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression offers advanced technology for the treatment of severe chronic low back pain and neck pain. Conditions treated include herniated discs, bulging or protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, spinal arthritis, sciatica and posterior facet syndrome.
Spinal decompression creates a unique and highly specific force that gently stretches the spine, causing negative pressure to develop in the damaged disc. This causes the disc bulge (or herniation) to move off the injured nerve and retract back into the disc. At the same time, the negative pressure creates an opportunity for water, oxygen and nutrients to be drawn back into the disc. The goal is restoration and rejuvenation of the disc towards a normal height. During the course of Spinal decompression care, pain diminishes as the disc heals.
