Our clinic offers state of the art equipment for spinal decompression using The Back on Trac. This is a spinal decompression treatment that slowly and gently stretches out the spine. This treatment is applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated disc to heal. The therapy creates a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc. It also creates a lower pressure, which can speed up the healing process. Back on Trac also uses heat and vibration therapy while it works to decompression the spine.
This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about ten minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.
Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
