Back pain due to stenosis or a herniated, degenerated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the only answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology through the use of our DRX 9000 table that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery, injections or drugs.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and gently encourages the herniated or bulging material to move back into the disc. The computer is programed for each individual patient by Dr. Christian and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine which, over time, separates the vertebrae, creating a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back where it belongs. 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 frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about thirty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks. For many of our patients it has a longer lasting healing effect.
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, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
