Non Surgical Spinal Decompression
What is spinal decompression therapy?
This technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This “vacuum effect” is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.
The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, the cal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.
How does spinal decompression heal back pain?
Experts believe that during spinal decompression nutrients, oxygen and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.
Experts also believe that non-surgical spinal decompression stimulates the body’s repair mechanism, providing the building blocks needed to mend injured and degenerated discs.
What can non-surgical spinal decompression treat?
• Degenerative Disc Disease
• Facet Syndrome
• Bulging/Herniated Discs
• Failed Back Syndrome
• Spinal Stenosis
• Pinched Nerves
What equipment is used during non-surgical decompression? Is it safe?
The Accu-SPINA® system is recognized as simply the best non-surgical physiotherapeutic treatment system for back pain in the world. The Accu-SPINA offers features that no other spinal-treatment device can truthfully match, and it bears multiple patents and patents pending. Intrinsically medical and scientific in design, this system is the medical doctor’s non-invasive treatment of choice. Clinical studies have shown the treatment success of this device on surgical candidates has reached as high as 92%.
How exactly does non-surgical spinal decompression work?
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.
