Spinal Decompression Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery

Sciatica? Herniated, Degenerative, or Bulging Disc? Spinal Stenosis? Facet Syndrome? Neck or Low Back Pain? Arm or Leg Pain and Numbness?

If you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, this gentle, non-surgical therapy may be your answer to relief.

This FDA approved technology relieves pain by enlarging the space between the discs. The negative pressure of decompression releases pressure that builds on to the disc and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging disc to eventually go back into normal position. Decompression is the only treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review in 2004, said that 86% of all cases experienced spinal pain relief with disc decompression.

The decompression therapy works by creating a negative pressure between the discs with continious cycles of decompression and partial relaxtion. This may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc and take pressure off the nerve root.

The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.

For the low back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back or stomach on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well tolerated.

With an up to 86% success rate, thousands of patients have experienced dramatic pain relief and healing. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is very effective at treating bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes. Proper patient screening is imperative and only the best candidates are accepted for care.You owe it to yourself to learn more about Spinal Decompression Therapy, so please Contact Us today to learn more, or to set up an appointment so that Dr. David Mason can determine if Spinal Decompression Therapy is right for you.

  • "I was experiencing a stiff neck and painful low back with limited ranges of motion. My results were much improved range of motion and low back pain was eliminated. After adjustments and a couple of massages, I played my best round of golf of the year - pain free!"
