Spinal Decompression Treatment: Non-Surgical Treatment for Spinal Discs, Sciatica, and More

What is Spinal Decompression Treatment?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive treatment for patients who suffer from neck and back problems. A decompression treatment slowly and gently lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements by a customized treatment table. The table pulls and releases, creating a pressure change within the intervertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue, and joints.

Rehydration of the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change that assists the body’s natural healing process. Patients typically experience significant improvement within 20-25 treatments. Research suggests that continued improvement is seen up to four years following the decompression treatment program. This pressure change allows the disc bulges or herniations and nutrients to be pulled back into the disc.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal Decompression Therapy treats Neck and Back Pain related to Degenerative Disc Disease, Disc Herniations or Bulges, as well as Sciatic Pain. If you have been diagnosed with sciatica, a bulging disc, or chronic back or neck pain, spinal decompression therapy can help. This revolutionary therapy is different from traditional medical treatments that rely on medication to “cover-up” pain. Decompression therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive alternative to back surgery and prescription painkillers.

When a herniated or bulging disc slips out of alignment, it may compress nearby nerves. This compression can block the nerves from properly sending and receiving messages from the central nervous system and brain, leading to chronic pain. As long as this compression continues, patients will suffer pain. Spinal decompression therapy creates space between the different vertebrae, providing room for the herniated or bulging disc to return to its proper space in the spine. This relieves pressure on the nerves.

Why not surgery?

Complications
– Infections
– Nerve Damage
– Permanent Disability
– Even Death!
– Nearly 1 in 50 back-surgery patients dies within three years of surgery

Cost
– $6K to $85K
– More when you consider physical therapy, medication & hospital charges, lost wages, etc.
– Even with insurance, a 30% copay may mean a $16K outlay

Failure Rate
– Some studies show 50% failure rate
– Workmen’s comp patients report success in only 29% of the cases
– Several causes of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome have been identified

More importantly, recommendations from those who know …
For a patient with back pain or neck pain, “… before I would ever recommend that they had a surgery, … I would recommend Spinal Decompression because there’s no downside to trying this and it works,” says Dr. Timothy Kremchek, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon as seen on ESPN, HBO, USA Today and Sports Illustrated.

“I’d tell young people with back problems that they should try the non-surgical avenues first,” said Bruce Wilson, a Seattle resident who had endured seven back surgeries and still suffered from back pain when his story was chronicled in a 2008 article in Newsweek.
