The FDA has approved a new medical technology that gently stretches the spine and decompresses the herniated disc. Spinal Decompression is a method of treatment without surgery for back pain, neck pain, cramps and numbness in the hands and legs and sciatica caused by herniated, bulging or degenerative discs. Even patients with failed back surgery syndrome and facet syndrome have been reported relief with spinal decompression therapy. Spinal Decompression therapy is an excellent treatment as an alternative to surgery. Surgeries of the spine can sometimes have bad results with many risks and possibly long term complications. It is better to avoid surgery whenever possible. The number of sessions required and your specific treatment plan is determined by your Doctor after an examination. The treatments are completely natural, comfortable and do not cause pain.
In fact, some patients fall asleep during the session of spinal decompression. If this considering surgery, keep in mind that pain is relieved when the surgeon cut part of the disc or vertebra to create space for the disc. A Laminectomy or discectomy may cost a considerable amount of money. Many times patients stay with its own part of the invoice, sometimes between fifteen or twenty thousand dollars, even after their insurances pay their portion. Spinal Decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients with advanced osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe damage to nerves, or people who have spinal metal plates or screws. If you identify with back pain, neck pain, cramps and numbness in arms and legs, or sciatica and tired of taking pills and other treatments, or would like to avoid surgery, try spinal decompression.
