Orthopedic Decompression

Orthopedic Decompression

Orthopedic decompression Therapy is a proven treatment for the relief and/or correction of lower back pain due to degenerative disc disease, bulging and herniated discs, sciatica, post-surgical failures, facet syndromes, and more.  With up to 86% success rate from this type of treatment, thousands have experienced dramatic pain relief and healing.  Orthopedic Decompression Therapy is an innovative approach for the relief of lower back syndromes, including:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Acute or chronic back pain

Orthopedic Decompression is non-surgical, non-invasive, and does not involve medication of any kind.  The treatment is safe and relatively painless; some find it currently experiencing symptoms that are interfering with their quality of life, the first step is a proper examination to determine the exact cause of the symptoms and the severity of the problem, as well as to see if you qualify for Orthopedic Decompression Therapy.  The course of therapy (the protocol) begins following an evaluation and is completed in about 40 treatments.  Decompression is performed with a patented intervertebral decompression device.

How does Orthopedic Decompression Therapy  work?

Orthopedic Decompression can distract the vertebrae surrounding an injured disc 5 to 7 millimeters.  The 25 to 30 minute treatment provides static, intermittent, and cycling forces on structures that may be causing low back pain.

During treatment, intra-discal pressure is dropped from a positive 25 millimeters mercury to a negative 150 millimeters mercury.  This negative pressure promotes the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating the degenerated disc.  Repeated decompression promotes retraction of a herniated nucleus pulposus (the elastic center of the intervertebral disc).

The Orthopedic Decompression treatment can:

  • reduce pressure on the vertebral joints,
  • promote retraction of herniated discs,
  • promote self healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs, thereby relieving low back pain.

Several sessions are required to achieve optimal results.

Why should you consider Orthopedic Decompression Therapy?

Orthopedic Decompression Therapy is credible.  It is the only treatment that was developed by a team of back specialists including neurosurgeons, orthopedists, psychiatrists, osteopaths, chiropractors, neurologists, and physical therapists.

Orthopedic Decompression is proven and effective.  The procedure has been studied extensively over the past six years and has been clinically validated.  Thousands of patients have been successfully treated with Orthopedic Decompression.

Orthopedic Decompression is non-surgical and non-invasive.  The complications from surgery can be severe and may result in debilitating conditions.  Additionally, surgery can be extremely expensive and usually requires a long recovery period.  Orthopedic Decompression Therapy does not include any needles, drugs, or medications of any kind.... and involves minimal recovery time.

Orthopedic Decompression is convenient.  Treatment sessions last only 45 to 60 minutes.  Most Orthopedic Decompression Therapy patients can carry-on with normal daily activities because the procedure is non-invasive.  Additionally, patients may be able to minimize absence from work.
