Non Surgical Spinal Decompression Explained

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat disk injuries in the neck and in the low back.  This treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner.  Distraction is offset by cycles of partial relaxation.  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.

Non Surgical Spinal DecompressionThe negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both.  It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.

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 rubber pads behind the neck.  Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite relaxing and well tolerated.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is very effective at treating bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes.  Proper patient screening is imperative and only the best candidates are accepted for care.  (Copied from AmericanSpinal.com)

Time of Day

    After years of pain, Dr. Berry and his staff gave me a new lease on life.

           When I leave their office after a treatment I have so much energy and are virtually pain free.

            Thanks for changing my pain to painfree.
