Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and surgery was the answer in the past. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exact computer program for spinal decompression treatment.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we can create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is designed and supervised by a highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, separating the vertebrae over time, this creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc, and it can clear back pain and any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients with 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 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 cover the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
