The FDA has approved a new medical technology that gently stretches the spine and decompress the herniated disc. Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical method of treatment for back pain, neck pain, cramps and numbness in hands and legs, and sciatica caused by herniated discs, bulging or degenerative. Even those patients with failed back surgery and facet syndrome have reported relief with spinal decompression therapy. Therapy is an excellent treatment as an alternative to surgery.
Spine surgeries can sometimes have bad results with many risks and possibly long-term complications. It is best to avoid surgery whenever possible. The number of sessions required and their specific treatment plan is determined by your doctor after an examination. The treatments are completely natural, comfortable and not cause pain. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session. If you are considering surgery, please realize that pain is relieved when the surgeon cuts part of the disc or vertebra to create space for the disc.
A laminectomy or discectomy can cost a considerable amount of money. Patients often remain with their own part of the bill, sometimes fifteen or twenty thousand dollars, even after their insurance pays their portion. Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients with advanced osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage, or people who have metal screws or plates in the spine. If you identify with back pain, neck pain, cramps and numbness in the arms and legs, or sciatica and is tired of taking pills and other treatments, or would like to avoid surgery, try spinal decompression.
