Designed to Work the Muscles
This is a slow gentle process, so it allows the muscles and tendons to respond to the treatment. Patients do not go into spasm. The treatment doesn’t just work the joint, but also works on the muscles and tendons. Motorized and computerized spinal decompression allows the ability to target the injured disc, creating better results than traction.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression is non-surgical treatment. It works on the forces that will help distract those areas that are inflamed, to relieve pressure off the nerves. Combined with rehabilitation, it actually helps re-educate muscles, ligaments, and tendons, creating a healthier disc environment. Discs naturally remain healthy by activity, such as compression and decompression forces which you would get from activity such as walking. Your spine is made of vertebrate, disc, and nerves. The vertebrate is bone and the disc contains a jell-like substance which separates the vertebrate. When you have a disc injury, it means the vertebrate will pinch the disc making the disc spread out. When the disc spreads out it can touch the nerve, sending pain throughout the body. (This is just one of the many conditions helped by Spinal Decompression).
The forces of decompression work on the concept of gentle distraction therapy. Gentle distraction therapy is the compression and decompression of the disc. A membrane that prevents fluids from moving in and out of the spinal column connects the vertebrae. This membrane allows fluids to enter the spinal column at a much slower rate than it allows them to leave. This helps to protect the integrity of the fluid inside the spinal column. During the decompression stage, a partial vacuum is formed that relieves the pressure between the vertebrate, allowing the disc to reshape back to its normal form. When the decompression is released, the pressure with-in the spinal column equalizes at a much quicker rate leaving the overall process with a net effect of relieving the pressures on the disc. Through compression and decompression, the tissue surrounding the disc can heal because this process also creates blood flow and oxygen to the injured area. The blood flow and oxygen send nutrition to the injured area allowing a faster recovery.
How is Spinal Decompression Different from Traction?
Traction is a straight pulling that’s against certain poundage and it stretches against the irritated ligaments and tendons. It puts a pulling load against the entire spine. It does not apply a different pulling load to each disc within the spine or only apply the pulling load to a specific target within the spine. It is also a constant decompression and the partial vacuum created in the spinal column is equalized in only about one minute. The rest of the time is only stretching the muscles, tendons and ligaments, many times to the patient’s distress. Patients can often experience pain with this method. Advantage Spine and Disc has the most modern equipment with specific computerized modules that allow for specifically tailoring each individual’s needs. A young and petite athletic female is not going to need the same treatment as a mid-thirties male whom has a desk job, nor do the elderly couple who are suffering from osteoporosis. The key is to stay away from inversion tables, to seek a trained and certified professional who can care for your spine the way it is intended to be cared for. Non-surgical spinal decompression tables have variances in pulling pressure, patterns, time, and position.
What do Patients Experience?
Patients feel comfortable and very relaxed during the treatment. They do not feel any pulling or contraction. In fact, many patients fall asleep during the treatment. After the treatment is complete, some patients feel the same good sensation, as if they just worked out. When they get up from the table, the pain is reduced, because this process was not forceful. Most patients feel an immediate relief from the first treatment. In fact, patients even look forward to receiving their next treatment.
In the past, patients may not get better with therapy shots or regular chiropractic treatment and were required to go for surgery. This treatment creates a new alternative for patients. It helps creates stabilization in the spine, allowing the patients to respond better to the benefits from other forms of treatment such as nutrition and spinal manipulation.
How are Patients Treated?
Patients are treated fully clothed during treatment and are positioned into a harness that fits around the pelvis, as well as a thoracic harness, as they lie face up or face down on the table. The table is operated by a computerize console. The treatment is personalized, based on the mechanics and the neurological feedback of each patient’s muscles and tendons, allowing each patient’s spine to respond to the treatment.
