Spinal Decompression

Non surgical spinal decompression is a great alternative for the treatment of herniated, bulging and degenerative discs. For patients that are suffering from sciatic pain or are possibly facing surgery, this is a non invasive procedure that facilitates the body's natural healing process of the disc.

Anyone that has had a disc injury knows that it isn't easy to heal up from. The process is long and the pain can be excruciating. Also if not rehabbed correctly, this leaves one prone to a life of intermittent bouts of spine pain.

One key factor to the healing process is how much blood flow the disc receives. Blood delivers essential nutrients to the tissues that make up our bodies. It helps us repair injured tissues and also helps us to get rid of injured cellular debris as well. Unfortunately the intervertebral discs do not get a lot of blood flow which hinders the speed at which our bodies can recuperate from an injury (ie: herniated or bulging disc). In fact the discs rely upon spinal movement to facilitate a type of pumping mechanism to help drive nutrients in and out.

Here is the catch 22: when you injure your spine, the last thing you want to do is move. Muscles stiffen up and pain, achiness and swelling all start settle in for the long hall.

Non surgical spinal decompression helps with the repair of injured vertebral discs by passively inducing spinal motion. It allows the spine to move without causing severe pain to the injured tissue. The results of this treatment can be a decrease in patient pain intensity and frequency.
