Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, luckily spinal decompression can be of help. There is different forms of decompression out on the market today, all looking to accomplish the same thing with minor differences in approach. Our decompression choice is The Cox Table. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in flexion, extension and rotation, which separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will alleviate the pain in the legs.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment two times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within six weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
