What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

“Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy using the Evolution DT® has helped many of my past patients reduce their pain, and improve their quality of life, at Ace Physio we would love to chat with you to see whether you would also be a good fit for this incredible new therapy.”
-Brad Saltz (Registered Physiotherapist)

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and cost effective treatment for disc pain in the neck and back. There are no needles, you do not get unclothed, and the treatments are performed quickly.

Those who suffer from neck and back pain commonly experience numbness, tingling, weakness, pain, and decreased function of the upper or lower limbs. These symptoms can be so debilitating that it affects sleep, work, and normal daily activities.

Extremity symptoms occur when the central disc material (Nucleus Pulposus) breaks through the protective outer disc rings (Annular Fibers) of the disc and move into the space occupied by a nerve or nerves that travel from the neck to the arm to the hand, or, from the back and down the leg to the foot or to the groin area.  If you have a disc problem, you probably know how terrible these symptoms can be.


So what is Spinal Decompression?

Does Spinal Decompression really work? Can Spinal Decompression really keep you from having an invasive, painful, and very risky spinal surgery? The answer is yes, yes, and yes…but results do vary.  Our experience has demonstrated that our use of the Evolution DT® consistently has the highest level of patient comfort, compliance, and most importantly excellent results in reducing our patient’s neck or lower back pain and symptoms.  Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression does not just mask or cover up symptoms like medications or injections, but rather seeks to address the underlying cause naturally, and without any invasive procedures.

The type of traction that creates Spinal Decompression (the kind that may prevent spine surgery) works by employing  a highly technological computerized traction system that gently pulls apart spinal segments, systematically and continuously, via a highly technological computerized traction system.
When this technique is applied, negative pressure is created within the disc allowing for the disc material that has moved away from the central part of the disc, and crowding a nerve, to be “sucked back in” and drawn back inside the disc, which takes the pressure off the nerve.  Subsequently this results in reduced neck and back pain, reduced arm and leg pain, as well as promotes true healing of the disc.  So, for lack of a better term, this type of traction is also referred to as “Spinal Decompression” although it’s the “traction” that causes the spine to decompress.

This begs the question – does Spinal Decompression really work?

MRI_actual_patientThe answer is YES.  The alternative is often surgery, a life on drugs, or painful injections that often are temporary or can damage nerves.

If Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is the right treatment for you it usually takes about 20 visits to achieve the treatment goals, however pain will often start to subside after only the first few treatments .

If you have tried adjustments/ manipulations, conventional therapy, drugs, and you are at the end of your rope and do not want surgery, or have experienced a failed surgery, then Spinal Decompression may be the treatment of choice.

The advantages are; no surgery, no discomfort, no down time as with surgery, and the results are very good, and for much less money.
