Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression | Natural Back Pain Treatment

Spinal decompression

Spinal Decom

Also known as non-surgical decompression, this type of therapy can often be used very effectively in treatment of severe and often debilitating painful spinal conditions involving the low back or neck.

What is Spinal Decompression therapy?

Back pain due to a herniated, degenerated or bulging disc or stenosis of the spine can be debilitating and change your life in devastating ways. In the past, surgery was the only answer. Today, the use of our DRX900 table and this advanced technology allows us to relieve the pain, weakness and loss of sensation that is often a part of disabling back conditions.

How does spinal decompression therapy work to relieve pain?

Using a state-of-the-art computerized technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a gentle stretch and relaxation in the painful areas of the spine. The computer program is customized by Dr. Christian for each individual patient and is supervised by one of her highly trained staff. It works by, over time, separating the vertebrae, causing a vacuum-like effect moving the herniated or bulging disc back where it belongs. There is also a vacuum-like effect that draws nutrients and hydration into the affected areas. This helps them to heal faster and more completely. This specialized treatment is not traction; traction cannot do this.

What conditions are treated with non-surgical decompression?

Fortunately, many common back pain problems such as disc herniation (Fig.1), with or without sciatica (Fig.2), degenerating discs (Fig.3), and spinal stenosis (Fig.4) are treated with a high level of success. The risk is very low, and the benefit is often life changing for the better.

Herniated Disc

Herniated Disc

Pressure from vertebrae can cause the gel-like center of a disc to bulge or herniate through a weakness in its outer wall. When a herniated disc occurs to a vertebrae in the lower back, it can press on the sciatic nerve.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Sciatica

Degenerative disc disease is the natural wear down of the discs between vertebrae of the spine. The wearing down of the discs lowers their height causing the nerve passageways to become smaller. This can cause pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is the natural wear down of the discs between vertebrae of the spine. The wearing down of the discs lowers their height causing the nerve passageways to become smaller. This can cause pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. This narrowing reduces the available space for the spinal cord and nerves. Spinal stenosis can pinch the sciatic nerve as it leaves the spine.


What is the difference between non-surgical spinal decompression and surgical decompression?

Surgical decompression is done under anesthesia and is performed by medical professionals with instruments that cut open the skin and other tissues with the intent to remove disc, bone growths and parts of the vertebrae that may be causing nerve pressure. Often following the removal of these structures, the spine is unstable and must be secured with screws and metal plates which are placed there permanently.
