The spine is made up of numerous distinct vertebras connected by spinal discs. Due to their round form and soft nucleus center, these discs are frequently referred to as jelly donuts. Regrettably, when a disc ruptures, herniates, or slips, it can compress or pinch adjacent nerves. Many Americans suffer from a painful back problem as a result of this.
The good news is that finding relief from a pinched nerve or spinal injury does not necessarily require surgery or pain medication. In fact, many people benefit from spinal decompression, a non-invasive surgery that is both safe and effective.
What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical procedure that includes gently extending the spine. This therapy decreases spinal pressure, allowing the herniated disc to heal properly. At Pro+Kinetix we relax the patient in a neutral, face-down posture on a flexion distraction table. Unlocking a specially built section of the table allows gentle, isolated, and regulated pressure to be given to specific parts of the spine.
When compared to other treatment options, spinal decompression employing the flexion distraction approach has a number of advantages, including:
- Safe for all ages
- Non-invasive (no need for anesthesia or anesthetic)
- Quick procedure (typically 30-45 min)
- Natural therapy (without use of pharmaceuticals)
- Effective relief (70% of patients demonstrated “excellent” to “good” results)
