Spinal Decompression Therapy in Tamarac
A safe and gentle technique for stretching and relaxing the spine. Spinal decompression therapy is clinically proven effective for relieving mild-moderate pain associated with bulging or herniated discs, particularly in the lumbar spine. This chiropractic treatment can be especially helpful in reducing or eliminating severe lower back and neck pain resulting from compressive injuries of the spine and treating degenerative conditions such as:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging or protruding inter-vertebral discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Posterior facet syndrome
How Many Spinal Decompression Sessions Are Needed?
The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by Dr. Abramson after your initial examination.
What Makes Spinal Decompression Therapy so Effective?
Proper assessment, correct positioning and the use of detailed human movement patterns of distraction and relaxation reduce disc pressure.
This allows necessary nutrients to enliven and accelerate disc healing and contributes to the imbibition process.
Imbibition is when blood and nutrients are absorbed into the spinal discs consequently making the living tissue stronger and healthier.
Who Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Anyone who has back pain or neck pain from an assortment of causes, including but not limited to damaged discs and injured facet joints, may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, non-specific mechanical low back pain or even failed surgery.
Are There Medical Studies that Document the Effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Yes! One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases and other studies reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved good to excellent results after spinal decompression therapy.
Are There Conditions Where Spinal Decompression Therapy is Not Indicated?
Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage.
Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws or metal plates) is also contraindicated. However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery can be performed.
Are the Sessions Painful?
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.
How Many Sessions Will be Required?
The specific treatment plan will be determined after your examination. The best results have been achieved using 15-20 sessions over a 4 to 8 week period.
