Decompression Therapy is an effective treatment for these conditions. It is very affordable and less expensive than surgery and utilizes new therapeutic device for treatment of painful nerve compression and disc herniation syndromes.
The Decompression-Reduction-Stabilization therapy is an effective treatment for: Herniated disc, degenerative disc, facet syndrome, sciatica, post-surgical patients, and spinal stenosis.
The vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates in growth of blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response.
There are a number of spinal decompression machines presently used in the United States. After significant research, Hopkins Clinic for Physical Medicine has chosen to use the Triton DTS Machine manufactured by Chattanooga, Inc., the premier manufacturer of physical therapy machines.
Spinal decompression therapy is designed to unload the spinal disc. Our office offers pain management in Arlington, TX for those who suffer from any back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, or radiculopathy (pinched nerves). We have also seen many with facet joint problems helped.
Spinal Decompression Therapy has an over 70% success rate. This success rate is similar to surgical results. However, unlike surgery, decompression does not have a lengthy recovery time.
