Neurosurgeons across the country recommend that, "physicians have an ethical obligation to attempt cervical or lumbar traction prior to surgery." Physicians agree that surgery should be used only as a last resort.
Decompression Therapy, also known as Cervical and Lumbar Traction, gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints, and muscular tissues, while enhancing the body's natural healing process. It is a non-surgical solution for acute and chronic neck and back pain.
Decompression Therapy is an FDA approved treatment that uses a special table and computer to help in the management of serious back and neck pain. This unique therapy is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be the source of your discomfort.
A gradual breakdown of the foundational support of your back is what puts undue stresses on the discs. This leads to pain and loss of function. Our goal: heal the disc, while enhancing muscle control and support of the neck and low back. This approach offers pain relief through the decompression of your back, vertebrae, discs, and joints. In the process, it increases blood and nutrient exchange to help heal damaged discs naturally.
As one of the most gentle and comfortable therapies available, the program utilizes computerized equipment to improve safety and efficiency. Patients report a sensation of mild stretching on their back and/or hips and often fall asleep during treatment.
Created over a quarter of a century of research and dedication from doctors and therapists, Decompression Therapy is safe, cost-effective and non-invasive. This pain-free approach has a proven track record of success in relieving back and neck pain when paired with targeted, core-stabilizing exercises. We also offer a comprehensive treatment plan including chiropractic adjustments, heat, ice, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound (to help with inflammation and spasm reduction) to ensure the best results possible.
It is this multi-facet approach that makes the overall treatment so effective. If you suffer from acute, chronic, or debilitating, low back or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to call our office today to make an appointment to see if you're a candidate for cervical or lumbar traction!
