Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment option for people experiencing mild to moderate neck or back pain. These pains can be caused by a degenerative disc disease, such as a bulging disc or herniated disc that is placing pressure on a nearby nerve root.
This type of therapy is used to realign the components of the spine in order to relieve pressure on a pinched nerve that is causing chronic pain and symptoms.
By using traction, spinal decompression therapy increases circulation to the damaged disc, allowing it to begin the natural healing process. This may not only relieve disc pressure, but also reduce compression of nearby spinal nerve roots.
We have a unique program at Orlando Spinal Aid that treats disc conditions of the neck and back. Your discs are active living tissue and with the right treatment plan, can heal naturally. Our program is unique to each patient, therefore, we recommend scheduling a consultation to see if you would be a candidate.
Specifically calculated decompression forces act on the two vertebrae on either side of the disc requiring care. As the vertebrae are gently and safely pulled in opposing directions, negative pressure is created in the disc. This allows water and nutrients to draw back into the disc. The disc can regain its height and simultaneously retract and heal disc bulges and herniations.
As the rehydration and disc healing takes place, pressure on adjacent nerves is reduced and nerve healing begins. spinal decompression session is programmed to target the specific spinal disc requiring care. Decompression force is calculated specifically for each patient. The on-board computer monitors the decompression forces continuously and adjusts them as needed based on the body’s response to treatment. This ensures accurate and pain-free sessions while healing takes place.
Patients undergoing spinal decompression care lie fully clothed on a comfortable padded bed. During their session they can choose to enjoy video entertainment, or close their eyes and relax.
Learn, Non Surgical Spinal Decompression | End Chronic Low Back and Neck Pain
Spinal Decompression is a multifaceted program; decompression is an integral portion of a complete program leading to relief of back or neck pain. There are no short cuts; pain relief comes with healing and tissue repair, which may take up to six weeks or more. There are three components used in Spinal Decompression Therapy: 1) decompression of the intervertebral space, 2) realigning and strengthening the spine, and 3) education and prevention of further injury.
Each therapy session consists of 3 or 4 possible treatment elements: passive therapy to reduce muscle guarding and decrease inflammation while increasing blood flow to the injury site, decompression of the spine, therapeutic exercises, and chiropractic spinal adjustments. Spinal adjustments are a vital and necessary part of spinal decompression therapy and are scheduled to coordinate with your spinal decompression schedule. The doctor will assess your plan of care and determine the frequency of adjustments needed.
Your Spinal Decompression Therapy package includes: 24 decompression treatments, necessary posture rehab sessions, an exercise ball and/or therapy bands if applicable, nutritional supplements recommended by the Dr., hot pack or infra-red light therapy before each treatment, and spinal adjustments. Any additional spinal decompression treatments beyond the standard 24 visit protocol the doctor deems necessary will be charged on a case by case basis.
**While decompression should not be expected to correct or completely restore disc health, decompression can provide increased infusion to the disc, long term symptom relief, and can reverse some of the aging process in the intervertebral disc.
Because our program is unique to each patient, and each patient is different, we recommend scheduling a consultation with the doctor. He will determine if you are a candidate and suggest a treatment plan. We have treated thousands of patients and can make treatment affordable so that you can get out of pain once and for all.
There are many different insurance companies and each company has a variety of plans. We highly recommend scheduling a consultation to speak to the doctor to determine if you would be a candidate for treatment. During your consultation, our staff will check with your insurance company regarding coverage.
