Decompression Therapy also known as Cervical and Lumbar Traction gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints, and muscular tissues, while enhancing the body's natural healing process. It is a non-surgical solution for acute and chronic neck and back pain.
Cervical and lumbar traction gives you pain relief through the decompression of lumbar and cervical discs and joints that are unloading due to distraction and positioning. The traction creates a controlled unloading of the vertebra to reduce disc pressure, thus increasing blood and nutrient exchange to help heal damaged discs naturally. Twenty-five years of combining research efforts of doctors and therapists has led to the development of this technology, creating a safe, cost-effective alternative to invasive treatments.
Neurosurgeons across the country recommend that, "physicians have an ethical obligation to attempt cervical or lumbar traction prior to surgery." Physicians agree that surgery should be used only as a last resort.
As an additional benefit, we use other adjunctive treatments such as chiropractic adjustments, heat, ice, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound to help with inflammation and spasm reduction. A gradual breakdown of the foundational support of your back is what puts undue stresses on the discs and leads to pain and loss of function. Our hope is not only to help heal he disc, but enhance muscle control and support of the low back and neck.
It is this multi-facet approach that makes the overall treatment so effective. If you suffer from acute, chronic, or debilitating, low back or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to call our office today to make an appointment to see if you're a candidate for cervical or lumbar traction!
