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

If you are looking for a Non-Surgical way to relieve your symptoms of neck and back pain and improve your day-to-day life, Non-Surgical Decompression could be the answer for you.

When it comes to spinal issues; surgery, pain meds and injections can often be recommended without exploring other options that may be less invasive and healthier overall for the patient. Dr. Nicole Shutko Chiropractic Center offers a state-of-the-art non-surgical procedure known as Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.

  • Restricted and inflamed spinal joints (called Posterior Facet Syndrome)

Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy effectively improves the healing process and often renders quick and effective pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, opioid addiction and the potential of failed back surgery.

How does Spinal Decompression Work?

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression relieves pain, reduces inflammation of the spine, and restores spinal motion all while treating the underlying cause. This pain-free procedure is designed to relieve the pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. As pressure builds inside the disc it causes bulging of the gelatinous material inside the disc. This jellylike tissue can be placed under so much pressure that it can cause the annulus, or outer band of the disc, to rupture. When the disc has ruptured or “herniated,” it may create pressure against one or more of the spinal nerves which can cause pain in the back or neck that can travel into the legs and or arms causing weakness or numbness and several other symptoms.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression creates negative pressure within the disc, causing the herniation to be drawn slowly back into the disc space, (vacuum- effect) thus relieving the disc pressure on spinal nerves as it rehydrates the disc which usually relieves the pain. Reducing pressure in the disc also restores the natural transfer of surrounding blood flow/fluids, nutrients, and oxygen into the disc, stimulating the formation of collagen which helps the disc to heal.

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)
