Treatment for a Herniated Lumbar Disc with Sciatica using Decompression

Do you suffer with severe low back pain or neck pain? Does your MRI reveal disc herniations or protrusions? Have you been told you need back surgery? Decompression Therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment. Computer technology makes the application safe and comfortable.

Do you suffer from a herniated disc, protruding disc, degenerative disc disease, stenosis or a compressed nerve/pinched nerve? Decompression Therapy may be your answer to permanent pain relief without surgery. You will be screened to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.

Decompression Therapy is the most promising new therapeutic procedure for compression and disc syndromes! By separating (tractioning) vertebrae apart from one other, pressure is reduced on the underlying cause of the most pain, a compressed nerve. This helps drive down the inflammatory process and relieve pain. Protruding discs often retract a bit, affording long lasting benefits.

Factoids to Know About Spinal Decompression:

  • Spinal Decompression was developed by Allan Dyer, MD, a former Minister of Health from Ontario, Canada, who was already recognized as a pioneer in the development of the external cardiac defibrillator. He invented the decompression table for low-back disc problems and this proved to be revolutionary in the treatment of low back pain.
  • Spinal Decompression gained FDA clearance and approval in the mid-1990’s.
  • Dr. Dyer’s work and research was later updated by Harvard professor and neurosurgeon C. Norman Shealy, MD, the father of the TENS unit.
  • The American Journal of Pain Management published a study by Dr. Shealy in 1997 comparing 14 patients who underwent traditional mechanical traction with 25 patients given spinal decompression. “The decompression system gave ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ relief in 86% of patients with ruptured intervertebral discs and 75% of those with facet arthroses.” The researchers found that computerized spinal decompression produced “consistent, reproducible, and measurable non-surgical decompression, demonstrated by MRI.”
  • Dennis McClure, MD, a neurosurgeon, further conducted a study that tested over 500 surgical candidates. He found spinal decompression had a success rate between 86 to 92 percent one year post treatment.
