Are you tired of living on pain killers?
Have you been told you have to live with your condition for the rest of your life?
Spinal Decompression Therapy may bring the healing power you need!
Spinal Decompression Therapy helps to heal damaged, degenerated, herniated or bulging discs. This computerized therapy can:
repair discs so that you can find lasting relief from pain caused by herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, spondylosis or possibly even failed spinal surgery.
relieve the pressure that builds up on the discs and creates a kind of vacuum so that it draws the disc material back into place.
suck the vital fluid and nutrients back into the disc to rehydrate and re-nourish it so that it can heal.
draw the bulging disc material back into place so that it relieves the nerve pressure that results in back, neck, arm or leg pain.
is non-surgical and requires no pharmaceutical drugs
strengthen the ligament bands so that they can begin to hold the disc in place again and speed healing.
Your Nixa Chiropractor, Dr. Hunter Greenwood, uses the most advanced table, the Triton Spinal Decompression Table. This table features a computerized unit with programmed patterns so that decompression will occur at the disc level and with the specific amount of pressure you need to experience healing and relief.
Most patients find spinal decompression treatments to be painless and relaxing. The number of sessions needed will vary according to your condition. Dr. Greenwood will carefully monitor your progress so that you don't have to pay for more care than you really need.
Read what some medical researchers have said about Spinal Decompression Therapy:
“Eighty-six percent of ruptured intervertebral disc patients achieved ‘good’ (50-89% improvement) to ‘excellent’ (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved.”1
“Results showed that 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment.”2
Dr. Greenwood will examine you first and may suggest spinal manipulation, naturopathic stretching, exercise, and/or nutrition to support your healing process.
Spinal decompression therapy is usually not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or sever nerve damage. Those who have metal implants, such as metal plates, scres, or cages, should not consider spinal decompression.
However, those who have had other surgeries, such as bone fusion or non-susion surgery, may benefit.
