Chronic back pain can be a very debilitation problem. It can disrupt your entire life since so many activities we do rely on having a healthy back. If you’re one of the 31 million Americans who is experiencing back pain, then spinal decompression therapy may work for you.
There are two types of spinal decompression therapy out there, surgical and nonsurgical. We provide the nonsurgical type and always recommend that as the best place to start first to avoid any unnecessary surgical procedures.
What is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?
Nonsurgical spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine using an automated traction table that can be adjusted specifically to the individual’s needs. The patient lies fully-clothed on either their back or stomach while wearing a harness connected to a weighted cable. The machine intermittently weights the cable which gently stretches the back It’s a very slow, mellow process and can take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes based on the patient’s requirements.
What happens is that over the period of time, pressure is taken off of the spinal discs, which helps retract herniated discs and also takes pressure off the nerves and other compressed structures in the spine.
NW Injury & Rehab Center is equipped with the latest in nonsurgical spinal decompression technology. Thanks to this revolutionary technology, we have seen well over 90% success rate in treatment of conditions such as; low back disc herniations, disc herniations in the neck, pinched nerves, spinal arthritis and sciatica, using Lordex Spinal Decompression technology. The high success rate can be attributed to not only the technology but also the way our doctors take the time to accurately diagnose the patient’s condition.
We have witnessed hundreds of Lordex Spinal Decompression patients recover fully from back pain after already spending thousands of dollars on everything from medications to spinal injections and surgery, which usually left the patient with no change or often times worse off than before.
Most patients feel immediate results, however although nonsurgical spinal decompression is highly effective, it often takes more than one visit to realize long-term results. We usually combine the compression with strength training for the back to ensure long lasting effects.
