Spinal Decompression

Do You Want To End Your Serious Neck And Back Pain?

Many of you have been worried that your only treatment option is neck and back surgery. Surgery is one option but your end result may be more painful than the pain you currently have, it's very expensive, and unfortunately may not even work. Fortunately we have a great alternative to neck and back surgery, it's called spinal decompression.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is an effective traction-based non surgical procedure designed by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals to help reduce or eliminate low back and neck pain. It is performed on a meticulously designed table in a comfortable position. A computer controlled traction device then precisely applies a gentle amount of stretch to your spine. This decompression therapy enhances your body's natural healing processes and often provides a quick, effective and amazing pain relief that allows most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. This also will help you avoid the risks of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

What Conditions Can It Help?

Spinal decompression therapy can be an effective treatment for neck pain, arm pain, and headaches. It can effectively treat disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches. It effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning. It is a highly successful treatment for those suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases. 

Does Being Certified Matter?

Yes! Certification provides essential education on evaluation techniques to determine not only if this is the correct treatment for you but what methods and procedures should be applied. This is very often ignored by non certified doctors and could lead to you being injured or receiving ineffective treatment. 

Dr. Phelps was certified by the leading expert in spinal decompression, Jay Kennedy, DC, who has trained doctors worldwide and treated thousands of patients using a variety of decompression systems. The topics cover an array of subjects including proper patient selection, patient positioning, treatment times, amount of force, and ancillary procedures. The course includes hands-on training sessions, followed by a certification examination. It is approved by leading chiropractic colleges. 

The Process?

Your certified doctor will start your session by performing an evaluation to determine if this service is for you and to determine the proper table positioning, pressures, and therapies to be used. Treatment is administered to patients fully clothed and begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help muscle relaxation and promote further healing of the injured tissues. 

After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.
