Non-surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression at ChiroHealth of Chiropractor Fargo
Back pain can be a debilitating condition and nobody understands that more than the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors. They specialize in chronic and hard to treat conditions related to the spine and back and know that when pain starts to interfere with life it can be difficult to know what to do. You can be left thinking what exactly is the best method to relieve it?
Fortunately the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors have a procedure called Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression to specifically help back pain sufferers once and for all.
Why is it important to be aware of this state of the art treatment option? Sadly, far too many people choose to treat their back condition with pain medications. Not only does this not help long term, but it also leads to other very serious health side effects. Other times, people may opt for more invasive procedures like injections or surgeries. Once again, the research show that for long term outcomes, neither injections or surgery are good options that lead to a greater level of health. Not only does surgery require a long recovery process but there is no guarantee of positive results and, there is a strong likelihood of having negative side effects.
At this point, many find themselves asking, “what other option should I consider?” Well, fortunately the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors have the option that has been the answer to thousands of back pain sufferer’s prayers. That option is spinal decompression and is a stress free, non-surgical procedure to help with debilitating low back pain, leg pain and degenerated spinal disc symptoms. Spinal decompression relieves pressure on the spine, helps ease sciatic pain, treats degenerated discs symptoms and relieves symptoms of posterior facet syndrome. We use the DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Lumbar Device in our office. This is the most effective and state of the art non-surgical decompression method available.
When one of the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors determined the DRX9000™ to be beneficial for you, you can begin this life-changing care option. Our care team will simply harness you up, lay you on your back and set the computer and then allow the DRX9000™ to gently do its work. What will happen is the treatment will create a negative pressure or vacuum effect in the disc at your specific affected level of your lumbar spine. It’s non-invasive, completely safe with no side-effects and so comfortable that people often times fall asleep during treatment.
The true-decompression treatment used by the chiropractors in Fargo at ChiroHealth & Rehab targets the discs of the back for healing. The discs are the soft gel pads between the bones (called vertebrae) in your spine. The vacuum effect created relieves the compression of the nerves and discs creating a negative pressure inside the disc. This relief of pressure can help herniated or bulged disc sufferers return to their normal routines of life. Treating the specific discs can relieve pressure on the nerves along the spine, as well as allow water, oxygen and nutrients to flow back into the discs and help to restore circulation back in the discs. When this happens, the healing process will begin to take place.
Many back surgery candidates have come to see the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors, looking for alternative methods for relief from their back pain and have had great success with spinal decompression. Of course as with any health care treatment, results will vary by patient, but we are proud to say that we have had a great success rate in getting patient members relief, restoring mechanical function for patients and helping to revitalize their life. Although results from the use of the Spinal Decompression machine usually are not immediately noticeable, we have had many patients that have reported a decrease in pain after the first treatment and have had a noticeable change in only a week or two. Because healing is a process and takes time, normally several treatments are required before a noticeable change can occur.
When you see one of the chiropractors in Fargo at ChiroHealth & Rehab, the doctor will look at your specific needs and the amount of change and damage to your spine in order to determine the number of treatments you will need to help restore you back to your most wanted health, function and pain relief.
The great news about this kind of therapy treatment is that its benefits are not limited to only focusing on low back pain. While the decompression machine focuses on the specific levels of the lumbar spine, this therapy also has benefits for patients with stenosis symptoms and sciatica issues. The nerves in your lumbar spine connect to your lower extremities, but when the disks are out of place, they can pinch the nerves causing pain in the other areas, which are connected. Many patients of the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors have come to see us and our team for their sciatic pain. Often sufferers of sciatic pain will have pain in the buttocks or running down their leg even into the toes. Thanks to the Non-Surgical Decompression treatment, they have been able to get back on the road to recovery and get their life back.
The Spinal Decompression therapy we offer here at ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo is a very comfortable treatment for the patients. First, you will be fitted with a harness belt around your waist, as well as a piece for your upper torso. As you step up onto the machine, you will stand in position for the table to be laid down. After the table is in position, your legs will be propped up by a wedged cushion for comfort, as well as for maximum benefit from the machine. A strap will then be fastened from the machine to the harness belt around your waist. The therapist will then make sure that all the straps on your belt and torso piece are snug and fastened properly. You will also be given a pillow for your head if you so desire for comfort. At this time, the table will be unlocked in the middle so that the logarithmic pull at your specific vertebral level will be optimized. Then, the treatment will begin. You will feel the mild pressure of the pull which some say gives them relief instantly. The treatment will go through a period of cycles that will last anywhere from 15-30 minutes. There will be a logarithmic series of pulls and releases in this time frame. This helps relieve pressure on your discs. It allows them to be decompressed and hydrated. This stimulates the circulation process in the discs of your lumbar spine for healing.
The ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors and the team of therapists will monitor you throughout this process. If at any time during the treatment you should need something, we will be right there to assist you. As soon as the treatment is over, the table will be raised up. All harnesses will be taken off and your Spinal Decompression therapy will be complete.
