Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Despite its conservative nature, extensive research proves Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) to be highly effective in correcting many pain-inducing conditions and eliminating the need for surgery. Disc-related conditions of the lumbar or cervical spine benefit greatly from this non-invasive, drug-free therapy.
At Cornerstone Wellness Center, we consistently hear from our patients that they have experienced remarkable pain relief following just one treatment of Spinal Decompression. Utilizing a therapeutic, computer-programmed traction table to create negative pressure between the discs of the spine, Spinal Decompression allows for the herniated or bulging disc tissue to ease back into the disc space. This controlled, mechanical traction on the spine creates space and encourages a healing environment for the disc, allowing oxygen, nutrients, and water to flow back into the once cramped disc environment.
Is Spinal Decompression a Good Fit?
If you are experiencing pain associated with disc abnormalities, such as bulging discs, spinal arthritis, herniated discs, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, sciatica, or if you have degenerative disc disease, Spinal Decompression—often combined with physical therapy—can be an excellent source of pain relief. Together with other therapeutic modalities, spinal decompression can drastically reduce pain symptoms in just a few visits and enable your permanent return to pain-free activity.
Highly Successful, Safe Alternative
Through a gradual set of stretch and release cycles, the patient’s spine is gently guided into controlled, mechanical traction that prevents the muscle back spasms often associated with traditional, overall traction. Spinal Decompression therapy is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, or prescription medication. Clinical studies of Spinal Decompression therapy are reporting that a high percentage of patients show a significant reduction in pain.
