Spinal Decompression Enhanced With Cold Laser Therapy – A True Game Changer
Spinal Decompression stretches the segment bringing the bulge back in. This allows the outer ring to begin healing.
We believe that we have the answer to getting you back to being active and back into your life. All through the use of non-surgical spinal decompression.
For patients who have not undergone spinal decompression before, the thought usually conjures up mental images of either hanging upside down for several minutes a day or going under the knife, just to get some relief from the numbness and pain of nerve compression. The funny thing is the most successful version of decompression therapy involves neither inversion, nor invasive and, sometimes, dangerous surgery. If non-invasive success sounds good to you, then Cold Laser Enhanced Spinal Decompression in Amarillo, Texas is the answer you are looking for. There are many conditions and injuries that can affect your back and neck and cause you a great deal of pain and discomfort. Anything from whiplash to age can cause:
- Disc bulge
- Disc herniation
- Spinal stenosis
- Facet jamming
- Isthmic and degenerative spondylolisthesis
There are both surgical and non-surgical solutions. The non-surgical means are:
- Physical Therapy – treats the core supporting muscles but NOT the disc specifically.
- Spinal Injections – treats the inflammation but does NOT target the disc specifically.
- Spinal Decompression – safe, conservative, and powerful treatment that DOES target the disc specifically.
- Micro-decompression – a portion of the affected disc is removed so the spinal column can be realigned.
- Open decompression – a section of vertebrae is removed to relieve compressed nerves,
If surgery sounds like a gamble, that’s because it is. There is no guarantee that selecting a surgical approach will relieve your chronic back pain. Research has shown that only about 30% of spinal disc surgeries do not need to be repeated. Many patients experience cascading problems with functionality and discomfort post-surgery. In fact, most insurance providers won’t cover these procedures unless the patient has failed to respond to more conservative treatment options. What is the good news in all of this? There is a “conservative” method that works, even if you’ve previously undergone surgery and it failed to fix the problem. The trick is successfully combining this conservative method with the right kind of treatment support. This game changer uses mechanical traction, not inversion, to apply gentle force to the disrupted discs and relieve the pressure on the spinal column. Achieving the right amount of force at the right angle keeps your back or neck from spasm. It also does something else that surgery can’t guarantee: it nourishes the spinal column by reactivating its diffusion process. Your back does not receive nutrition through circulation, like the rest of your body. Instead, nutrients and water are brought directly to the discs through the end plates on each vertebra. When your back is in proper alignment, the vertebrae defuse the nutrition by passing it from one end plate pair to the next. Inflammation disrupts this process and causes damage to the discs. Spinal decompression, when performed with cold laser therapy, uses a combination of three tools to accelerate the healing process:
- Doctor skill-specialists certified in the Kennedy Decompression Technique
- Table was computerized traction
- Conjunctive therapeutic methods-cold laser therapy and exercises that promote healing
- Avoid surgery
- Avoid spinal injections
- Avoid physical therapy
- Increase ability
- Increase activity
- Decrease pain
- Decrease numbness/tingling
