Approved by the FDA in 2001 for treatment of vertebral disc injuries, spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective treatment for disc bulges, disc herniation, spinal stenosis or facet syndrome. This non-surgical treatment helps aid in the recovery of damaged or inflamed spinal ligaments by removing the stress on these joints and by increasing hydration of the vertebral disc material.
This innovative therapy can achieve phenomenal results. When combined with neuromuscular massage, physical therapy, advanced pain relieving cold-laser, and ligament based nutrition our patients have achieved full recovery from their disc injuries.
Intradiscal pressures create a vacuum effect on the spine, while spinal decompression releases this pressure and creates more room for pinched nerves within the affected spinal segment, allowing the space in between the vertebra to be rehydrated and heal. As the space rehydrates, its shock absorbing abilities are replenished, which reduces mechanical stress on the related structures (facet joints and supporting ligamentous tissues), greatly lowering if not halting the risk of osteoarthritic damage. This less invasive alternative to surgery treats bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica, failed back surgery syndrome, and non-specified mechanical low back or neck pain resulting in spinal stenosis.
Cold laser therapy employs the use of non-heat (cold laser) produces lasers designed to initiate the healing process and help to repair the damaged and inflamed areas of the spine. The combination of spinal decompression and cold laser therapy, allows our doctors to reduce pain and inflammation while also expedite the recovery and healing process to the spinal nerves and ligaments.
