Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
The next generation technology for low back pain and sciatica
NON SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
The RENUVADISC DECOM PRESSION TABLE provides an alternative treatment for people with disc buldging or herniation in the neck or low back spinal discs, suffering from low back pain or sciatica. In comparison to normal traction therapy, the body’s normal reflex reaction is to tighten muscles against the traction. Spinal decompression equipment contains sensitive computer-feedback mechanisms to avoid this providing up to a 88% success rate. (1) Each treatment includes a ramp-up, hold and release tension implemented by its computerized.
What is the effect of Spinal decompression on the disc?
Spinal discs have a poor blood supply which is worse when the disc is injured. Decompression encourages the mechanism by which a disc obtains its nutrients and oxygen, and for removal of metabolic waste products. The discs are gently and painlessly distracted to achieve a negative pressure within the disc. The negative pressure created by decompression allows compressed discs to draw in moisture and nutrients from the surrounding body tissues as well as promote retraction of bulging or herniated discs causing pain.
If neck or low back symptoms have not resolved with other types of treatment, spinal decompression therapy should be considered for people with diagnoses of disc bulge, disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica and spinal stenosis.
Inclusion criteria for decompression therapy include pain due to herniated and bulging lumbar discs that is more than four weeks old; recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old, persistent pain from degenerated discs not responding to therapy.
An increasing number of studies are demonstrating the effectiveness of spinal decompression therapy.
In a recent study of 219 patients with herniated discs and degenerative disc disease, 86 percent who completed the therapy showed immediate improvement and resolution of their symptoms; 92 percent improved overall.
We consider decompression therapy to be a primary treatment modality for low back pain associated with lumbar disc herniation at single or multiple levels, degenerative disc disease, facet arthropathy, and decreased spine mobility. We believe that post-surgical patients with persistent pain or ‘Failed Back Syndrome’ should not be considered candidates for further surgery until a reasonable trial of decompression has been tried.
Recommendations and conclusions
While results obviously vary, many back pain patients who undergo decompression therapy, including those who are long-term chronic or post-surgical cases, are able to resume normal activities. Patients not showing significant improvement by the 15th to 18th session may be referred for further diagnostic evaluation. Age, body morphology, smoking, previous surgery, chronic use of narcotic or steroid medications, obesity, and large amounts of daily caffeine may negatively affect the outcome.
Surgery should only be considered following a reasonable trial of the decompression protocols.
Spinal decompression therapy is safe, comfortable and painless. As decompression therapy becomes better known, patients are likely to look to chiropractors as a source of information, referral or treatment. Knowledge about the technique is a good place to start for those who wish to educate their patients about alternatives to surgery.
