Spinal Decompression is a remarkable form of care for both acute disc injuries as well as chronic degenerative disc disease. It can be extremely beneficial in cases where radiating nerve pain is present, such as sciatica. The decompression force helps reduce pressure on the affected nerve. It is also remarkably effective in cases where symptoms are limited to back pain that is due to degenerating or thinning disc. It can be used for these conditions of both the lower back and neck.
The benefits of Spinal Decompression are significantly enhanced when strengthening exercises are performed at the appropriate time in the patient's recovery. In most "decompression" cases, we encourage a combined treatment program that also utilizes our "state-of-the-art" exercise facility. Your care may also include therapies such as laser light therapy, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or localized massage.
