Spinal Decompression and Laser in our Orange County Clinic has made a huge impact for the neck and back (degenerative disc disease), spinal stenosis, and herniated disc health conditions.
Most patients are told to get surgery or rely on dangerous pain medications for their lives when this therapy has helped millions of sufferers.
The inflammation and pain you are feeling comes from the damaged disc between the spinal vertebrae. When you do something strenuous like bend over and lift, the discs themselves become stretched and actually start to break and leak inflammatory fluid on the nerves that are in the region. What also happens is the nerves become pinched by the discs (L1-L5), leading to muscle spasms and pain.
Treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease and Herniated Discs: Spinal Decompression is a computerized device that actually pulls or decompresses the disc (traction device) with interval weighted segments. You cannot do this safely and effectively with an inversion table. After the first few sessions, most patients are sore but start to feel great after the first couple weeks.
Now not all patients are candidates for this type of care. If the spine is in stage 3 degeneration, unfortunately it is too far advanced in arthritis.
But if not, there is great hope for you and to get your life back.
Lasers are becoming more popular in treating conditions like arthritis. The laser may be something that will work in addition to decompression for you. The doctor will decide at the time of your report of findings what is best for you, if your case can be accepted. For more on lasers please visit http:www.litecure.com.
