Here’s a great video explaining how spinal decompression works:
Do you suffer from degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging disc, sciatica, stenosis, or other spinal problems? Has your physician suggested you consider surgery?
You may want to consider spinal decompression coupled with oxygen enhanced brain-based therapy first. While other offices offer spinal decompression as a stand along treatment our protocols take spinal care a step further. To our understanding, we are the only office in the Greenville area to combine spinal decompression with the powerful effects of oxygen and brain based therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy on its own has proven effective in treating degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, herniated discs and spinal stenosis. But when combined with a system of treatment that addresses the nervous system and core muscle strength, you have a winning combination. If you have already had surgery, spinal decompression therapy can still be considered if you suffer from failed back surgery syndrome.
Spinal discs do not get oxygen and fresh blood consistently. Decompression and motion can enhance healing by restoring the needed nutrients back into the discs. During therapy, you will go through phases of distraction and relaxation. Once the problem spinal disc is isolated it can be placed under pressure which creates a vacuum effect. The vacuum does two things. First, any portion of the disc that has herniated or protruded will return to where it should be. Second, the vacuum effect brings in a fresh blood supply which can promote healing.
Spinal decompression and oxygen enhanced brain-based therapy typically takes 30 minutes to perform. Patients usually have treatment three days a week for a minimum of four weeks. Most patients find pain relief within a few sessions. However, to achieve maximum and long-lasting relief, commitment to the entire recommended treatment program is necessary. For those who are candidates and follow the recommended guidelines, spinal decompression has proven to be highly effective.Spinal decompression is safe, comfortable and effective for patients experiencing bulging, degenerated and/or herniated discs. We have been providing exceptional care in Greenville since 1996. Our experience and cutting edge protocols have brought long lasting relief to hundreds in our community.
