Spinal Decompression… SUCCEEDS!
Since we REALLY do like to see you SMILE, my question for you is this: Why would you even consider an alternative when… Clinical studies have shown non-surgical spinal decompression to be successful (good or excellent relief- meaning pain down to a “0” or “1”) in 86 percent of patients with herniated discs and degenerative joint disease – without ANY side effects. [i]
The most amazing thing is: Studies also show a 90 percent reduction
in disc herniations in 71.4 percent of patients. [ii]
Even better, treatment with this non-surgical technology is painless, drugless and there are NO side effects documented at all. In fact, many patients report the treatments are so relaxing… they actually fall asleep! Click for Video.
Spinal Decompression technology has been cleared by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The conditions that have shown documented success are:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Radiating leg pain
- Radiating arm pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Relapse or failure following surgery
- Facet syndromes
- Herniated and/or bulging discs (single or multiple)
A very important note:
Spinal Decompression has been successful with even the most severe cases… even when NOTHING else has worked. Even after failed surgery! Click for Video.
This Isn’t Traction!
Unlike traction, Spinal Decompression utilizes sophisticated sensors that track your muscles’ resistance to the pulling forces. These sensors, with computer enhancement, allow your doctor to very gently tighten, then reduce the tension, all in a very slow, controlled process — so your muscles do not react to the tension. This spinal stretching is a process that takes place over multiple sessions, as needed, to protect vertebrae and discs from injury.
In one study, researchers examined the effects of Spinal Decompression on the nucleus pulposus (inner core) of spinal discs. They connected a very thin tube to each patient’s L4-5 disc space, and attached a device called pressure transducer to measure pressure on the disc. They recorded the pressure between discs when tension was applied and when the patient was in resting state.
The results were exciting – because, when highest levels of tension were applied, the pressure on the nucleus pulposus decreased significantly – to less than 100 mm Hg. This provided proof that the tension in Spinal Decompression does its job! [iii] Click for Video.
MRI studies comparing regular “old” traction to spinal decompression have shown regular traction does NOT return herniated material back into the disc, while spinal decompression DOES return herniated material back into the disc (reducing or eliminating pain). [iv]
