I have been in the construction business for over ten years, which has really taken its toll on my back. I saw an orthopedic surgeon who did an MRI, which revealed major disk damage up and down my spine. I had previously seen spinal decompression on the internet, but had just written it off as another scheme. One day as I walked (or stumbled) down the stairs I ran into a doctor who informed me that he had a new therapy that could help my back. I was very interested in what he had to say. As it turned out, he had a spinal decompression table, and I immediately started treatment. After just two visits my pain level dropped from a 10 to a 3. With every subsequent visit my pain got less and less until I felt no more pain. I never thought I could feel this good again. I am now able to hold my son and play with him, which I did not think I would get to do. I have never been a firm believer in alternative medicine, but after my experience with spinal decompression, I am a true believer.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression was initially approved by the FDA in 1997. It has become one of the best treatment options for herniated and degenerative spinal discs. It is effective in reducing bulging discs by stretching the spine reducing intra-discal pressure. This is a conservative form of physical therapy that, when combined with other therapies and exercise/core strengthening, can help to relieve pain and stabilize the spine.
Approximately 80% of Americans will develop an acute back pain syndrome during the course of their adult life that will result in time lost from work. The medical doctor will usually prescribe medication and physical therapy. This form of Spinal Decompression Therapy is significantly more effective in reducing pain and stabilizing the spine.
