A Safe Alternative to Surgery: Spinal Decompression
Back pain can be debilitating, and herniated disc injuries to the low back and/ or the neck can make everyday activities agonizing. Integrated Pain Solutions of Wisconsin employs spinal decompression therapy as a safe alternative to surgery and successful treatment option for those who have had previous back surgeries.
Spinal decompression therapy is an FDA-cleared, drug-free, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for disc-related lumbar and cervical spine syndromes. It works by gently stretching the spine in a specific and controlled manner lowering pressure on the spinal discs. When disc height is increased, pressure on the nerves is reduced and pain may effectively be decreased. This pressure release also helps to improve the exchange of nutrients and blood flow to the discs.
Spinal Decompression Can Help Many Conditions:
- Low back pain
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Pinched spinal nerves
- Radiculopathy or radiating arm pain
- DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease)
- Leg weakness, numbness, or pain
- Facet Syndrome
- Spinal stenosis (Lumbar and Cervical)
- Headaches and Migraines
Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy:
- Pain reduction for both local and radiating pain
- Improved circulation to/ from discs
- Improved nutrition to discs
- Fewer muscle spasms
- Increased flexibility in connective tissues
- Stretches stiff scar tissue
What You Can Expect During Your Treatment:
>Spinal decompression therapy consists of a series of treatment sessions customized to meet your individual needs. An average session lasts between 20 to 45 minutes. Most patients find this time very relaxing and describe the feeling as a “gentle pulling sensation.” Some patients even fall asleep during their treatment.
Our doctors will assess your individual situation and recommend the combination of treatment options best suited for your individual needs.
