In the last few years, the knowledge surrounding spinal decompression and laser therapy has grown by leaps and bounds. This research benefits those suffering from many spinal and non-spinal conditions, ranging from: Lower Back Pain, to Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow), to Coccydynia (tailbone pain), and a multitude of other painful conditions.
I still remember hearing about Spinal Decompression Therapy for the first time in 2004 and was intrigued by the notion of helping people with “slipped” or herniated discs without using surgery. When the process was first explained to me, I was skeptical, but didn’t discount the theories completely. I kept an open mind.
For the next 3 years, I read literature, case studies, and attended seminars on spinal decompression therapy and finally, I had the therapy performed on me. During the treatment, I felt the gentle pulling sensation and remember thinking, “That’s not much force.” In fact, I didn’t think there would be much difference, but surprisingly, although I had only slight discomfort before the therapy, I could move much easier afterward. Especially when going from a seated position to standing.
After that day, it was only a short time before I was treating patients in my office with this amazing therapy. Since then, I have successfully treated many people with painful spine conditions because there appears to be a “vacuum phenomenon” that occurs during the decompression process that brings the disc material back into normal position and gives immediate relief.
Shortly after beginning using decompression therapy, I started hearing about a more powerful laser therapy than lasers of the past. These new Class IV lasers had a deeper tissue effect than the much weaker models of a lesser class. Now lasers can penetrate deep enough to even speed the healing of discs. This enables us to help discs in roughly half the time we used to, and to be able to heal more severe disc herniations than we could.
By stimulating adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and enhancing cell membrane permeability a Class IV Laser actually helps injuries heal, rather than just masking the pain. It is even safe to apply over metal implants, broken skin, and on acute injuries.
In short, the combination of Decompression and Laser Therapy is unmatched. These allow physiological benefits that no other modality can deliver and are very safe when performed by a properly trained technician. This is how we help many people avoid spinal surgery.
Not all conditions are amenable to decompression. If our screening method does not indicate decompression as beneficial, we will let you know.
