A Non-Surgical, Highly Effective Solution for Disc-Related Low Back and Neck Pain
Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical traction-based procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches. Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.
Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective, and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals.
Is it right for you?
Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential often failed back surgery. Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes.
During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues. After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits. Decompression Therapy is administered to patients fully clothed either face down or face-up on the table.
With e-stim, a therapist secures electrode pads to your skin. He or she then turns a dial or presses a button on an electrical muscle stimulation device, a console that is either plugged into the wall or battery-operated. This machine generates electric impulses that stimulate your skeletal muscles to contract. Depending on the device’s program setting, the contractions may be barely noticeable, or they may feel, and look, like involuntary twitches.
The primary purpose of e-stim therapy is to simulate what happens in the body when you voluntarily contract and release a muscle many times in a row. This process strengthens and repairs tissue, particularly muscles which have become shortened, weakened, or atrophied due to injury or disease.
