Demystifying Spinal Decompression: Your Surgical and Drug-Free Path to Spinal Pain Relief
Greetings again from your friends and neighbors here at Fort Lee’s Ishitani Health Center, a multi-specialty medical facility. Since a significant percentage of our patient inquiries involve interest in learning about this thing called “spinal decompression for back pain”, we thought we’d spend a few moments here today to address the subject.
The first thing people want to know is “what conditions is this treatment used for”? Here they are:
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet syndrome
- Post-surgical patients
- Spinal Stenosis
Clinical studies verify that spinal decompression delivers significant reduction of internal disc pressures which result in the non-surgical traction of the disc and nerve root. People often confuse this treatment with conventional traction methods used decades before. Older, conventional traction has never demonstrated a reduction of this internal disc pressure; on the contrary – many older traction devices increased internal disc pressure, most likely due to reflex muscle spasm.
Research to develop today’s spinal decompression methods was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals. What is most important for you to understand is that this is a gentle and comforting treatment that most of our patients confirm noticeable pain mitigation after their very first treatment.
So, if you currently suffer any form of spinal or neck discomfort, know that you have a surgery and drug-free option to address your pain. Contact us here at the Ishitani Health Center today!
