What is Decompression?

The NEW Treatment for Low Back Pain… Spinal Decompression

Do you suffer from low back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, sciatica, or even a failed back surgery?

Have you tried chiropractic, medications, pain management, painful injections or physical therapy without relief? Have you been told surgery is your only other option?

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems and severe back pain usually was given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren't progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now.

Today, you don't have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Spinal Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

The video below shows a news report on Spinal Decompression.


Does Spinal Decompression really work?

Spinal Decompression has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its release, clinical studies have revealed an amazing success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems with Spinal Decompression.

Consider the Facts: Back Surgery vs. Decompression Therapy

Decompression:

  • Relief of acute or chronic (long term) neck pain, low back pain and/or associated leg pain or numbness, generally within four weeks, and often after the first few visits.
  • Successful for over 75% to 85% of patients.
  • Return to work, school, or other daily life activities sooner. No down-time after treatment.
  • No hospitalization required, eliminating the risk of complications from anesthetic or infection.
  • No knives, injections, narcotics, or pain from treatment.
  • Significantly less expensive option.

Back Surgery:

  • Sometimes surgery is necessary, but many times it is not the only option available.
  • After surgery, generally 6-8 weeks of recovery time is required.
  • After recovery, at least another 6-8 weeks of physical therapy and rehab 3-5 times a week is required.
  • Significant risks from anesthesia and infections, and a lower rate of successful results.
  • The cost for back surgery is typically over $25,000.
  • Even with good insurance coverage, a patient's portion of the bill is often $4,000 or more.
