Spinal Disc Injury and Low Back Pain Treatment
If you are suffering with la lumbar disc herniation or bulge, Enliven Chiropractic may help. We have one of the newest and most sophisticated non-surgical treatments available, Intervertebral Spinal Disc Decompression. Enliven Chiropractic utilizes state of the art equipment in the treatment of low back pain and sciatica, a North American Medical Corporation DRS/SPINA. Conditions we have treated with this system include:
Degenerated disc disease (DDD)
Unspecified low back pain
About Spinal Decompression Treatment
The DRS/SPINAL system helps to establish a vacuum pressure between discs. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with linear traction, slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This pressure reversal creates a vacuum that helps to re-position bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves.
During the treatment, you will be fitted with a comfortable harness and slowly lowered down to a supine (on your back) position. The system will slowly pull and release tension over 15-20 minutes. A typical treatment plan involves 24-30 sessions per damaged disc.
Supportive Therapies for Spinal Disc Injuries
Based on your particular case, supportive therapies may be prescribed to assist in your healing process.
Low Level Laser Therapy works to stimulate the damaged muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joint and soft tissue to re-grow and heal injured cells and tissues. Those who experience an increase in joint mobility and will begin to notice a reduction in inflammation, allowing them to return to their pre-injury state without relying on drugs or surgery.
Proper nutrients are needed to ensure that the discs have the building blocks to heal. We provide you with the nutritional support to assist in your healing process.
Abdominal Core Strengthening
Long term stabilization relies on proper biomechanics and balance between the abdominal and low back muscles. We utilize techniques that have been proven and published in peer reviewed journals.
Spinal Decompression is Effective
There are many peer reviewed studies documenting the effectiveness of IDD Spinal Decompression. The North American Medical website is full of published research articles.
