Neck And Back Care Non-Surgical


It is estimated that about 70% of the population will experience neck and back pain at some point in their life time.

  • Chronic back pain can last a life time and can affects activities of daily living.
  • Some treatment options mask the pain with medications.
  • Surgery is considered as last resort.
  • Non-surgical pain relief – spinal decompression therapy as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for chronic back pain.

 

What is Spinal decompression Therapy (SDT)?

  • SDT is a computer-guided mechanical device to apply carefully controlled cycles of gentle stretching and relaxation movements to help expand the space between vertebrae in your back.
  • These spaces can be narrowed as degraded or damaged disc move out of positioned distort the normal positioning of structure within your spine.
  • SDT is based on principles of spinal traction. But unlike fixed traction. SDT offers a cyclic stretching and relaxation action which helps prevent muscle spasm and enables damaged or degraded discs to move back to normal position.
  • As is open the space between vertebrae, SDT also promotes healing by pulling nutrient rich fluids back into damaged disc.


Conditions you can treat with SDT

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndromes
  • Herniated and bulging discs
  • Sciatica and other condition related to nerve impingement.
  • Spinal stenosis (Narrowing of spinal canal)
  • Worn spinal joints (Posterior facet syndrome)


Is SDT safe?

  • SDT is a safe and often very effective in treating chronic back pain without surgery.


Contraindications for SDT

  • Osteoporosis
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Spinal fusion
  • Fractures of spine
  • Pregnancy



Sessions required for SDT & Duration

  • Each session takes 30-45 minutes.
  • Good result expected after 10-20 sessions.


Non-surgical Spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain.

  • SDT works by gently stretching the spine.
  • That changes the force and position of spine.
  • The changes take pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure in the disc.
  • As a result, bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine.
  • It helps to promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
