Spinal Decompression: Non-surgical Treatment for Disc Injury

We are excited to announce that our office now has the latest technology to treat acute and chronic lower back pain that is caused by disc injury and degeneration.
While it is true that chiropractic adjustments are typically the first line of therapy for musculoskeletal pain, adjustments alone are sometimes not enough for more difficult pain syndromes associated with disc inflammation, bulges, herniation, and degeneration. Dr. Duggar has been researching the best methods for treating these cases for some time now and we now have the needed equipment that will save many people from going under the knife for disc surgery.

What is Decompression Therapy?

Decompression therapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches.

Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.

Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals.

Is it right for you?

Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases.

This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues.

After treatment, the doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.

 

Ask Dr. Duggar if Spinal Decompression Therapy would be a good option for you.
