Spinal Decompression

Back pain due to a herniated or protruding disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the common recommendation . Today, we have highly­-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a spinal instrument call a cox decompression instrument that effectively produces spinal and joint decompression, ultimately leading to reduced spinal nerve root pressure.

Using the cox decompression table, or instrument, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and can often reduce the level of disc pressure and spinal nerve pressure. The cox decompression protocol gently moves the joints of the spine, reducing intervertebral pressure and increasing the size of the intervertebral foramen, or the hole the spinal nerve goes through. This creates a vacuum­-like effect that can reduce the size of the actual disc herniation. 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. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within 6-8 weeks, but this is dependent on the severity of the condition.

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.
