Disc Bulges, Prolapses & Herniations

Do you suffer from degenerative disc disease, arthritis, herniated or bulging disc, experience sciatica, or other spinal problems? Has your family physician suggested that you might want to consider surgery? If so, you may want to consider spinal decompression therapy first. Spinal decompression therapy has been proven effective in treating degenerative discs, arthritis, facet syndrome, sciatica, herniated discs and spinal stenosis. If you have already had surgery, spinal decompression therapy in many cases can still be considered if your surgical outcome was less than successful.

Often times, back pain that is non-responsive to various chiropractic adjustment methods will respond very quickly using Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This is one of the special tools we use at our offices.

Spinal discs do not get oxygen and fresh blood consistently. Decompression and motion can enhance healing by restoring the needed nutrients back into the discs and when combined with cold laser therapy reduction in pain can sometimes be experienced in a few of treatments. During therapy, you will go through phases of distraction and relaxation. Once the problem spinal disc is isolated it can be placed under distraction which creates a vacuum effect. The vacuum does two things. First, any portion of the disc that has herniated or protruded will begin to move away from the structures they are compressing, namely the spinal nerves. Second, the vacuum effect brings in a fresh nutrient supply which can promote healing.

Spinal decompression therapy typically takes from 15-30 minutes to perform and you will be in our office for about an hour each visit. Patients usually have treatment two to four times a week for five to six weeks. Most patients find pain relief within a few sessions. However, to achieve maximum and long-lasting relief, commitment to the entire recommended treatment program is necessary, because "we're not going to put cheap re-treads on your car, we want to fix the problem so you can get your life back." For those who are candidates and follow the recommended guidelines, spinal decompression has proven to be highly effective.

Before you opt in for surgery, explore the possibility of spinal decompression therapy with laser energy therapy. Every person who is interested in spinal decompression therapy will be evaluated to see if he or she would benefit greatly from it. I pride myself on results. If I can help you I will tell you and if I can't I will at least explain what you have and point you in the right direction. Life is entirely too short for me to be wasting my time and your time. So there is no sales pitch, I frankly don't have time for it. I am a former Assistant Professor and I do get a little long winded so you must bring all of your diagnostic x-ray, CT and/or MRI information with you. There is never a cost to speak with me about your condition, no charge to you and no billing to your insurance company. If I can help you we will schedule an appointment for an evaluation. Hopefully that is fair enough, schedule an appointment for a Case Review to see if you are a candidate for care. Give us a call.
