Non-Surgical Lumbar Decompression
Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic announces treatment for chronic low back pain caused by injury or degeneration to the lumbar region of the spine. The Decompression Unit allows patients a non-surgical option to low back pain. This treatment significantly reduces back pain and has allowed many patients to resume a more active lifestyle and live pain-free.
Conditions treated with Lumbar Decompression
Lumbar Decompression has successfully treated patients with herniated lumbar discs, bulging discs, disc degeneration, facet syndrome, sciatica, and failed back surgery. All these conditions increase pressure on the nerves resulting in extreme muscle tension and back pain.
How it works
Decompression gradually relieves nerve compression associated with low back pain. By applying negative pressure to the affected area, the treatment enlarges the space around the disc, strengthens spinal ligaments, and keeps the lower spine properly aligned.
What the treatments are like
To begin a treatment, the patient is placed on the DRX9000. An upper chest harness with shoulder support effectively distributes the pressure. Once secure, the technician reclines the patient to a horizontal position and directs the treatment to the appropriate area. After the session, a cold pack with muscle stimulation is applied to help improve soft tissue healing. Each session lasts 30-45 minutes.
Patients receive daily treatment for two to five weeks, followed by treatments three times per week as needed. Clinical studies have shown great results after only three weeks of treatment.
The DRX9000 can improve your performance.
In a typical spinal decompression session, patients will be properly and comfortably fitted within a pelvic harness. The system will begin to work its magic and the patient will notice a gradual lengthening of their spine as their discs are gently decompressed and relieved of tension and pressure. The therapy is designed to be safe and relaxing. Mild discomfort may be felt in the first few sessions of those with extensively damaged discs, but generally, patients express no pain during the treatment.
The DOC Decompression system also has an integrated computer system that is capable of sensing the patient’s guarding reflex. What this means is that the system is responsive to the patient’s limitations and tension, gently pulling and relaxing on the spine only when needed. The table is also adjustable to target different segments of the spine.
