Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating. In the past, some have had surgery in hopes of getting some kind of relief. 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 (for both low back and neck) and pulls the herniated or bulging disc back into its normal shape. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This can not only clear up back 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 sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and how often you come in for this therapy will depend on each patient’s unique condition. Each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty to thirty minutes. Patients usually have treatment 3-4 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 with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, call us and see if this is an option for you!
