Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression May Be The Answer For You!

Seeking a non-surgical solution to alleviate persistent neck and back pain? Look no further than Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, a groundbreaking technique for spinal care, offered at Dr. Nicole Shutko Chiropractic Center. This state-of-the-art treatment option sidesteps the need for surgical intervention, medications, or injections, offering a more patient-friendly approach to spinal health.

What Conditions Can Be Effectively Managed with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

  • Neck and Back Discomfort
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Radiating Arm or Leg Pain
  • Tingling, Numbness, or Weakness Extending to Arms or Legs
  • Persistent, Severe Pain of Varying Types
  • Spinal Conditions such as Sciatica, Disc Issues, and Spinal Stenosis
  • Swollen and Restricted Spinal Joints (also known as Posterior Facet Syndrome)
  • Complications Following Surgery
  • Compressed or Diseased Nerves
  • Muscle Spasms

Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy excels in accelerating the healing process, delivering swift and lasting pain relief that helps patients get back to living an active life. This form of spinal therapy mitigates the risks associated with anesthesia, complications from surgery, opioid dependency, and the potential for unsuccessful surgical outcomes.

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Function?

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is designed to not just alleviate symptoms but also treat the root causes of pain and discomfort. This painless procedure eases spinal pressure that can cause disc bulging, ruptures, and ensuing nerve irritation.
The treatment generates a negative pressure inside the affected disc, effectively pulling the herniated material back into its original place—think of it as a vacuum effect. This not only relieves nerve pressure but also hydrates the disc, generally reducing pain. Simultaneously, this decrease in internal disc pressure promotes the natural flow of fluids, blood, and oxygen, stimulating collagen production for disc healing.

How Many Treatments does it Take?

The majority of our patients find treatments to be a comfortable and relaxing experience, many actually fall asleep. The average successful treatment requires 20 to 28 sessions over six to eight weeks. Each treatment is approximately 30-45 minutes. The doctor may recommend other treatment modalities in order to reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, decrease pain, accelerate healing potential, improve balance, and strengthen supporting structures such as:

  • Deep Tissue Laser (decreases pain and inflammation, promote further healing of injured tissues)
  • Muscle Therapy (help relax muscle tension/ spasm)
  • Electrical Stimulation (electric current that breaks down muscle memory)
  • Ultrasound (the use of sound waves to generate heat and promote healing)
  • Strength Restoration Exercises and Stretching (a vital part of the treatment protocol. They are designed to improve function, strengthen and stabilize the muscles for your back and neck which will help create long term benefits).
  • Specific Home Postural, Stretching and Strengthening Exercises (will help in supporting and maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence)
