Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and low back.  Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain caused by a degenerated or damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression. 

Herniated discs, sciatic pain, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, failed surgery, disc degeneration, and may other spinal conditions respond favorably to NSSD. 
Goals of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression:

1.) Decompression – nutrition enhancement, centripetal effect, improved healing. 

2.) Stretch – regional mobilization, stimulation and modulation of neurological receptors, generalized stretch of shortened structures. 

3.) Directional preference – axial motion as a directional preference to create centralization effect.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression includes the following:

1.) Decompression table – time, pull pattern, and logarithm determined by exam. 

2.) Oxygen therapy – speeds healing of the discs and soft tissue via the delivery of oxygen to the cells.

3.) Low level laser therapy – speeds healing at the cellular level by stimulating energy production, encourage fluid exchange, decreases inflammation, and decreases pain.

4.) Manual therapy – relax the paraspinal muscles, break down scar tissue, and flush lactic acid from the muscles.

5.) Whole Body Vibration – stimulates the receptors that surround the joints with high frequency and very gentle vibrations.  This allows the tendons, ligaments, and muscles to ‘exercise’ without the need for excessive movement.
I also recommend at least one bottle of Baxyl which is a liquid hyaluronan, formerly called hyaluronic acid or HA.  It is the biomacromolecule most directly responsible for joint health. It is the major component of synovial fluid and is responsible for the structural and metabolic integrity of articular cartilage. 

I am certified in the Kennedy Decompression Technique.  This is a research-based technique used to establish the proper individual NSSD care plan for each patient.
