Back or neck pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. 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 exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine, which creates separation in between each of the vertebra. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back and neck pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting pain and /or numbness and tingling down their legs. Patients who have a herniated disc in the neck may have shooting and burning pain and/or numbness and tingling into their arms. 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 10-20 minutes. Patients usually have treatment a 2-3 times per 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 to your needs. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you! We would love to help you and answer any questions that you may have today!
